[...] brand new weighted mechanism [...] went through three months continuous testing [...] they checked to see if any wear occurred and where it was so they could finely tune the production process for maximum quality and durability."
So, is this an AvantGrand and NV10 killer in a tiny stage piano package weighting 8kg and costing €499?
I highly doubt that. Still The Casio privia Series already pack a fairly decent action in a compact size at a low price. Any improvement to that action is welcome. Improvements in durability are great too. I personally wouldn't care much about the sounds, though I'm sure they're likely to improve on the existing sound samples as well.
Looks like this model is new: https://mospiano.ru/goods/Casio-CDP-S350BK?from=ZGMz&mod_id=170762887
In Russia piano is released before NAMM
Well, it's not surprising. Casios are everywhere here. The most popular brand without any questions. Due to the pricing first of all, I think.
Yes, here too - I had an AP-470 over the summer last year, for the price I really couldn’t fault it but discovered absolute control with midi controllers and PTQ shortly after that and it had to go to make way for them. For the price it was probably the best value for my buck period. Still though kudos to Casio for pushing the envelope I’m sure it’s the same for many more countries too.
Yah, I've been seeing the price on the 160 dip on and off the last few months; I myself got it for $400. I wondered if that might indicate a new model, but even so, I'm glad I went ahead and bought it. I usually prefer to wait a year or two after new models come out anyway, just to see more user reviews, make sure there are no major problems, etc.
"As far as I know there is not going to be an updated version of the PX560M. There is something coming later in the year that could be seen as a "replacement" for that keyboard but it is not an updated version of the same board. It is more a higher end version of the new Privia that is being announced on Monday. There are two new Privia's by the way. There is a mid-range version coming on Monday and the premium version to be announced nearer NAMM."
Pretty different, though. 50% heavier, no aftertouch, no mod control, no MIDI jacks, no multi-zone MIDI controller function. But it does have a hammer action, more total sounds, alternate temperaments, auto accompaniment and a recorder.
