Thanks JimaSound,
I look forward to hearing what you think.

Stick to the Stage Settings at first on the right side of the keyboard. These all have pre-assigned controllers (sliders/knobs). Later if you want to change something or choose from the other "ingredients" you can choose from the tones on the left side.

I heard today that the 1.10 update is scheduled for Monday. cool

I believe this product will break new ground for Casio, and expect them to garner another award from Keyboard Magazine for offering a stage piano with a nice touch, great sounds, and unbeatable value. A number of the sound demos for the 5S show it is highly capable. Hopefully stores will have demo units to try as I never ran into a PX-3. I'm looking to unload the older Casio I have and am interested in the 5S. Hope you like your new Casio.

For better of worse, when people see street performers they don't imagine that they own 5 baby grands and a Steinway, and a home that can hold all that.

I believe this is called "living the dream".

I would have thought that my GAS would have been satisfied for a while with the Steinway B...especially since it is my first full size grand...I already own 5 other baby grand pianos and a dozen or so MIDI controllers/keyboards including a Casio CDP-200R and a Casio PX-330, but Mike's enthusiasm and commitment to this product is so addicting that I had to order it sight unseen. Hats off to you Mike and Casio for coming so far since the first Casio CZ-101 I had some 30 years ago.

I got mine yesterday. I only began playing it late last night.
Long day at work. I only used headphones and I really like the sound of the piano's.
Have to set up the PX5s with my studio monitors tonight or tomorrow.
Unfortunately, I'm off to work, so I can't play with my new toy until tonight frown

Can´t wait to hear what you guys think. I´m concidering importing one from the states since it will be much cheaper and the px5s won´t be here till august i was told by the distributor.

My mother would be able to bring it back for me but still anxious about taking it on a plane, at least without getting a flight case (which i wouldnt even need afterwards).
Anyone have any experience bringing keyboards on-board a plane? Or maybe sending it in its original wrapping?

For the lucky ones that have received one like me, did you get a printed
manuals with it. I only got the user guide and fold-out poster, but not the manual.
If it is to come with it I could drive to Mike Martin's home and pick it up smile

Sit in the middle of your plane, man. Or make sure there`s someone fat on the other side . .

Thanks Mike. I actually already printed out the most of the manual before
I got the unit. I'll finish printing the last 15 or so pages that I didn't print
and put in a 3-ring binder.

From the little I played with it last night and this morning I can say the
PX5S is really deep in what it can do.

Will the PC editor make it easier to edit the patches?

P.S.
Thanks Mike for answering all our questions.

The editor shows you more at once but there isn't anything that can't be done from the front panel. It will be released next week with the firmware update.

My installation is getting a dedicated iPad, so I'm looking forward to the tools! Two probably obvious RTFM-ish questions, Mike:

- What is the firmware update process? Hopefully done via the USB stick... I occasionally get products that require a Windows PC serial port, and that's a pain here.

- How "robust" is the headphone output? I see the two jacks, which I assume are parallel for two sets of cans, but I'm wondering if the Sennheiser HD 598 will be happy (I know the 600 and 650 generally require amping). Haven't ordered it yet, but finger is hovering over the CHECKOUT button. I think the open-backs with great soundstage and little coloring will be nice unless I'm mixing with mic sources, then I can switch to my cheapie closed cans. (Reading headphone-centric forums is maddening... not only are there a wide range of contextual applications that affect perception, but it's like any community that gets highly specialized, yielding so much information and deep analysis that it becomes a rabbit hole of pre-purchase decision research. Don't want to hijack this thread with that topic; the question is specific to output drive level... I suspect it's not an issue at all.)

My PX-5S arrives Monday! It's gonna be a long, long weekend...
Steve

The firmware update is done from a "USB Stick".

As for the headphone I've never heard anyone complain about the volume level on any Privia product. I use Sony MDR-7506 and never had an issue with lack of volume. wink

Great on both - thanks!

By the way, I'm probably echoing other sentiments that pepper this thread, but just want you to know... my decision on buying the PX-5S unseen was driven by a number of factors, a significant one of which is your active presence in the user community. As far as I know, only Casio and Kawai do that in any meaningful way... and the others should take a lesson from you guys. It makes a HUGE difference in perception of a manufacturer. There were a few specific models that I crossed off the list because I could never get answers beyond user speculation or published specs.

Cheers,
Steve

Definitely! Should be an interesting installation... it will live in a drawer under the desk and lift out for use (fiddly with cables, but not as messy as the original hinging-desktop idea). My perch will be a gas-lift Soundseat throne with custom pedestal base, the studio mic is on a Heil boom attached to the mast support (useful for standing with flute as well as voice while seated), speakers are Klipsh KHO-7 just above the racks, cans are the the Sennheiser HD-598 with closed-back units for mic work, and a 12U rackspace contains the studio goodies (Edirol M-16DX, Tascam DP-008, Fusion amp, signal routing, and so on). The center panel, mostly comm gear, has an iPad for sheet music (we don't need no steenkin' music stand!). Pedals protrude from a little cabinet wall in the foot well, including a JamMan looper. Acoustics of the space are probably not great; last time I did an audiobook chapter aboard, I draped blankets around. But I'll just have to live with that.

All good as long as I don't take a rogue wave with open hatches or suffer a knockdown......

Yarrh,
Steve

Is this a re-chargable battery pack?

Very interested in "busking" someday

The unit takes 8 AA batteries. But it says only use alkaline and not NC rechargeables.
I haven't tried it on batteries yet. Been having to much fun playing with it still.
I have to sit down with the manual and really go thru this monster smile

Can you give us a short impression on how the 'other' sounds are on the PX5S ? I mean, not the piano's or synth/hex layer sounds, of which we heard quite a lot already, but the sounds like organ (real drawbar emulation?), strings, acoustic instruments, basses etc.

I know the synth sounds , AP's and EP's are pretty good, but how the rest - do you need another board for the extra sounds ? The guy in the vid stops short exactly at the moment he was going to touch the organ and acoustic sounds...
