Does anyone know if the PX-780 will be available in the UK and what the difference is between it and the PX-750?

I don't believe it will be available until April both here in the US and in the UK.

The PX-780 will have a larger speaker system, hundreds of sounds (vs 18), accompaniment features, USB Audio recording and more.

So it's somewhere between the PX-750 and PX-850?
Does it share the same generation keyboard and sound technology?

Isn't it basically a PX-350 in a nice slim cabinet with lid? ie, it lacks the full AIR support of the 650, notably.

Please clarify on the AiR. Casio's literature says it has "AiR Sound Source"

AVAILABLE END OF MARCH 2013
Experience the elegant design and rich resonance of the PX-780.

The PX-780 has the grand piano sounds you need packaged in a stylish cabinet with sliding key cover. The PX-780 features 250 Built-in tones with split and layer, dual 20w speakers, USB MIDI and 3 pedals.

A 20w per side speaker system. The lid on the PX-780 does not open.

Some models in Casio's new lineup (PX-850, AP-450, AP-650 and the new PX-5S) have Key-Sympathetic Resonance as well as another nuances like release velocity and grand piano lid position simulation.

The lid on the PX-780 does not open.

I meant the thing that covers the keys. I hope it opens! [Linked Image] (There is a sliding key cover lid, right?)

Confusingly, the product description says "damper resonance", "hammer response", and "string resonance".

The top of the cabinet does not open the way the PX-850 does.

If the specs say string resonance I'm 99% sure that is a mistake. I will get the website updated.

But it does have a sliding cover for the keys, right? That's what I'm interested in. Sometimes DPs live in dangerous environments ... :^) Yeah, I found a photo at azpianonews showing the cover closed. I don't think its existence is mentioned in the specs -- but there's the tell-tale wavy groove in the photo. Thanks Mike!

James,
I think it is a replacement for the PX-800 which disappeared after the PX-X30 series launched. The specs are similar and it has more sounds than the 800 had. Probably also provides competition to the Yahama DGX-640.

Mike,
Is the PX-780 really come without the SP33 pedal at this price point?. The specs show the SP3 pedal included.
