Good morning chaps,

Casio Japan has recently announced two updated Privia models, the PX-135 and PX-735:

http://casio.jp/emi/products/privia/px135/
http://casio.jp/emi/products/privia/px735/

My initial impression is that these updated models represent an evolution of the existing range, with improved (i.e. more stable) keyboard actions and build quality.

The PX-135/PX-735 will launch in Japan from August - I expect the PX-335/PX-835 will follow later in the year.

Cheers,
James

Any other information? I've done a Google search and all I find is in Japanese.

Is this only a change on the keyboard?

What about the sound?

Sounds like some very welcome improvements to the components, but it's not really clear if they improved the sounds or not. I suspect not, given that the "5" designation sounds like an incremental improvement to the existing package rather than new internal sounds. But, of course, that's just speculation.

James, is there any clue in these promos that makes you think the keys and build are any better than what Casio currently offers? I haven't looked terribly closely, but I can't find anything new and exciting here.

dewster, yes the keyboard has definitely been improved.

Of course, I've yet to try it for myself, however judging from the scanned print-outs that I have here, action quality was one of the principal upgrades.

The number of instrument sounds and piano variations has also been increased, along with a handful of other improvements.

In my opinion, this refresh should address any criticisms regarding keyboard stability, and will therefore make the entry-level PX-135 an even closer competitor against the Yamaha P95 and Korg SP-170.

Cheers,
James

Hi James,

Your first link (above) looks to be okay, however:

I need to point out two things about the 2nd link, here.

1) Shouldn't it be "px735" instead of "px175"(?)
2) Your link shows no picture of any kind.*

*As I see Japanese text, nothing else.

Hope that this helps...

Just follow the first link - on the left of the page is a button to take you to the 735 (with pictures).

@voxpops,

Yes, you are right about the first link, but what about the 2nd one?
(It does not show any pictures at all, just has Japanese text.)

And, the number was incorrect, should have been "px735."
(Not "px175." As for the number in the link, itself.)

Thought that James could make the corrections.

pv88, thank you for noticing this error - the '175' link should indeed read '735' (as per the subject and body text).

I'll edit my initial post now.

By the way, text on the '175' url simply explains that the page cannot be found.

Cheers,
James

For perfection, you need to omit the "and" before "etc." as it is redundant. The "et" from et cetera means "and". wink

Only kidding with you, pv88. I'm always making mistakes. Perfection, for me, is an ever-receding dream - particularly when it comes to music!!!

My wife's first language... Seems they have used linear morphing or interpolation plus a variable filter to remove the jumps between sample levels so the timbre changes continously with key velocity.

Wetter this actually sounds good, we will have to wait and see.

ChrisA, I believe the 'linear morphing' technology was also present on the previous PX-x30 series.

It's interesting to read that your wife is Japanese - perhaps she can also assist with proof-checking your English? wink

Yes, the PX-330 and PX-3 (and PX-130 I assume) have fully blended layers.

Yes... it is frustrating that, in some important respects, the current models sound inferior to the older ZPI based Casio models. I do like some of the new sounds, some of the strings and organs for example are quite nice on the PX3, so the AIF chip is capable of some nice stuff, but the EPs and honky tonk pianos are still way better on the older generation. The old electric piano patches felt like you were playing instruments, and somehow, the new ones feel "fake." Even the acoustic piano, while in some ways less "authentic," simply seemed to play more "musically" to me on the old models. And the 32-note polyphony never bothered me!

I agree with all that. The only issue I had with my old PX-310 was slight latency when playing full chords in rapid succession. Other than that, I would still be happy playing it today, particularly for the EPs.

Since there is the new model out there (px135), does anyone have a chance to play it along with the Yamaha p95 and confirm that whether it could get anywhere better with this upgrade in term of touch and tone? Or the Yamaha is still more preferable?

Cheer,
Ed.

This new model hasn't surfaced elsewhere yet with no immediate plans to release in the US (not sure where you are located). In our experience selling them side by side, I find people more evenly divided between the PX-130 and P95 than here on the forum.

Thanks Sam, I am writing this from Melbourne. As you mentioned, couldn't find any store in Mel selling this model but Sydney. Also, there is ebay store here selling this. So just curious about the model as my wish of purchasing one of either. Having heard that new model px 135 has nothing different but two additional sounds added.

So just asked. Anyway, thanks again for clarification.

Ed.

I went for purchasing Casio PX-130 a few days ago and got the updated model (PX-135). I did a lot of research on PX-130 before purchasing. To me there is no significant changes made, at least in the action of the keys and the sound. It may be more stable than the previous one. Although the key-action is excellent, I'm not quite satisfied with the grand piano sound (I mainly interested in grand piano, not the E.Piano or other tones; they may be even worse) with its built-in speaker. But it sounds OK with headphones. I mainly use it as a midi controller with some good VST.

Not surprised to hear you don't like the sound through the on board speakers. Since this model came out, the speakers are one of the weak links. But then again, most slab pianos share this weakness in the speakers. The older Privias had better sound and also better speakers but they were bigger and heavier.

Which earlier model sounded best via headphones? The PX-320 with AIF synthesis? The PX-310 with ZIF synthesis?

Personally, I'd pick the 310 for greater musicality/playability, despite some aspects of the sound which may be more authentic on the newer PX330/PX3. And the 310 is only about 1.5 lbs more than a PX-330.

Hey, little boy, ya' want a DPBSD file of the PX-310?

I have a feeling it won't test impressively, but it plays nicely...

OK, but my mommy said I should be careful around musicians.

FWIW, I own both a Casio Privia PX-130 and a Casio Privia PX-135.

The PX-130 is an awesome digital piano; but, the PX-135 is definitely the better piano.

The PX-135 has...
better key action,
better key weight,
better soft-playing response,
better grand piano sounds (improved Modern and new Mellow),
...and that has been my experience with them.

Again, the PX-130 is very good in these areas already; but, there is a very noticeable difference (and improvement) in the PX-135.

(BTW, the PX-150 is even better still; but, I only played and do not yet own one of those.)

I have played a lot of digital pianos and still I like the Casio Privia line for the combination of value-for-the-price, key action, and portability-- just a really good deal all-around.

(Also, what is really cool in the Privia line, though a big jump in cost, is the Casio PX-5s... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZzGzDzhE8E ...which is more-or-less a full-blown synth PLUS and awesome piano, it seems.)

HTH.

Thanks.

"better soft-playing response"? I think you mean that it is easier to express quiet musical passages? Is that correct?

The other parts of your comment are too general and vague to be of any use:

"better key action"? Better how? Faster? Quieter? Something else???

"better key weight"? Heavier? Lighter? Why is the weight better?

"better grand piano sounds"? Why are the sounds "better"?
