The new PRIVIA PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 come equipped with the Company's proprietary, next-generation technology – AiR Sound Source – which accurately reproduces the complex tone, mechanical sounds, and atmospheric qualities of a grand piano. They are also outfitted with Casio's improved scaled hammer action keyboard, which enables even more delicate expression to facilitate any style of piano playing.

Designed with a glossy top panel that evokes a luxurious acoustic grand, a slim unibody chassis and ebony and ivory textured keys, the PRIVIA PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 are ideal for use at home or on the go. Both units offer a touch panel control surface, 192-note polyphony, six types of key simulators, Bluetooth audio, Chordana Play for Piano app compatibility, optional AA battery power and an included AC adaptor. Additionally, the PX-S3000 boasts a graphic LCD display, two-track MIDI recorder, 700 tones, 200 rhythms, two assignable knobs and more.

Additionally, musicians can choose optional items for both the PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 which include a new three pedal unit and a compact bag that is designed to hold the piano and all of its accessories. The PRIVIA PX-S1000 (MSRP: $899.99) and PX-S3000 (MSRP: $1199.99) digital pianos will be available this spring at select music dealers nationwide.


I'm sure we'll get more info, pictures & hands on reviews later today.

These are MSRP. The real prices will probably be lower.

The S3000 seems to be a replacement of PX-360 but with a higher MSRP. The S2000 may be consider an expensive replacement of the 160. Actually, the MSRP of these new models is similar to the top-range PX-560 and 5S. However, the new models do not have the advanced features of the top-range PXs. So, price-wise, Casio seems to be ditching entirely the entry-level PX-160. Maybe Casio considers the new CDPs to be the new entry-level DP range. Anyway, at this price point I expect these new Privias to be really good...

I'm not quite sure where the idea came from that this would have been the case. What little information which was available up until now suggested that these were expected to be, not successors per se (because the company was moving towards a more pure piano market), but following after the PX-5S and PX-560.

PX-160 MSRP was $799 for comparison and sold on street for $499 so we may expect $599 street price for the PX-S1000

It looks magnificent, I'm waiting for key action information and impression, especially vs the old action, if done right, this DP will be on the league of ES8, P515, FP90 with much cheaper price

Unlike Yamaha's CP88, these have sympathetic string resonance!

Which brings it in the Korg D1, Yamaha P125 and Roland FP-30 (or even FP-10) price range.

Indeed, about half, street price.
And the PX-S1000 would cost one third of them.

PX-S3000

[Linked Image]
Stunning piano Tones with damper and string resonance 700 Tones, 200 Rhythms plus songwriting tools Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard with simulated ebony/ivory key textures Beautifully polished top panel design with illuminated touch sensor controls Bluetooth audio for playing along with your favorite songs Bluetooth audio for playing along with your favorite songs Designed to work with the free Chordana Play for Piano iOS/Android app Optional battery power (AC adapter included) Powerful stereo speaker system plus two headphone and two 1/4" outputs Class-compliant USB port plus USB device storage

The Perfect Touch
There's never been a keyboard this slim that feels this good. The superior touch of the PX-S3000 is thanks to the newly designed fully weighted Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard, which delivers an authentic and uncompromising piano touch with an incredibly small footprint. Casio’s proprietary key scaling system reproduces the individual characteristics of each of the 88 keys, while ebony and ivory key textures ensure confident playing in any climate.

Piano and Beyond
The PX-S3000 features 700 stunning Tones including a breathtaking stereo grand piano. Advanced string resonance exposes the harmonic relationships between vibrating strings, while damper resonance adds depth and richness. You’ll hear the mechanical sounds of dampers rising, keys being pressed, and keys returning to their original position. Hammer response and key-off simulation deliver even greater detail, reacting naturally to your playing dynamics.

Bring In The Band
With hundreds of built-in Rhythms, you'll always have a band ready to jam. The variety of Rhythms spans the globe as well as the history of popular music. You'll find old favorites and chart-topping hits, all played with incredibly realistic instruments that sound better than ever. The drum kits come alive with authentic acoustic drums, vintage drum machine sounds, and a huge collection of percussion instruments and sound effects.

Now You See It...

The PX-S3000’s LCD display and touch sensor controls are revealed only when the power button is pressed, and are easy to see and use in any light. They disappear when powered off, leaving only a sleek, clean top panel. The PX-S3000's dynamic controls presents you with only the options you need, and removes the ones you don't. The bright backlit LCD display keeps you informed and makes exploration a breeze.

Blue Notes
Integrated Bluetooth audio lets you connect your device wirelessly to the PX-S1000, playing your music through its powerful stereo amplification system. Now, instead of just enjoying your favorite music, you can join the band.

Take Control
The PX-S3000 includes a pitch bend wheel for expressive control over its many Tones, plus two assignable knobs that can control built-in effects and other parameters. In addition to the damper pedal or optional 3-pedal unit, the PX-S3000 allows you to connect an expression pedal for additional versatility.

Connect and Create
Download the free Chordana Play for Piano app (available on Google Play and the iTunes Store) and customize your PX-S3000 to suit your mood. Change instrument settings, control the MIDI recorder, and learn your favorite MIDI songs with a graphical "piano roll" which grades you on how well you play. View PDF scores, and use the optional SP-34 3-pedal unit (or third-party Bluetooth pedals) to turn pages while playing. The integrated audio player allows independent control over pitch and tempo, and can remove vocals or melody from your audio files.

Speaking For Itself
A powerful stereo speaker system delivers crystal-clear sound towards both the player and the audience, and is engineered to sound accurate when facing a wall, placed on a table, or in an open performance space. The speakers project towards the player from subtle ports just above the keys, and towards the audience from rear-facing drivers with a beautifully designed grill. Two headphone jacks allow quiet play at any time.

The Perfect Fit
Privia pianos are already known for replicating grand piano sound and feel in a compact package, but the PX-S3000 will make you rethink how portable a piano can be. It's 43% smaller than previous generation Privias while retaining its true piano experience. It fits anywhere you need a piano: On a table, on a counter, on a desk, on your bed, the list goes on. Weighing under 25 pounds and with optional 6xAA battery power, the possibilities are endless.

Bring It On Home
When it's time to play out, the PX-3000's lightweight and impossibly slim design will make you wonder why you ever used anything else. The optional SCM-800 carrying case (sold separately) includes space for the PX-S3000, its music rest, and the portable SP-34 3-pedal unit (sold separately). Connect via left & right 1.4" outputs to any amplification or recording destination.

In Command
The PX-S3000 is also an ideal master controller for your home studio. It's more affordable than most dedicated 88-key MIDI controllers, delivers a better piano feel, and includes a vast collection of studio-quality sounds. Best of all, it fits easily into any desk designed to hold an 88-note instrument with room to spare. Class-compliant USB lets you connect to any Mac/PC/iOS/Android device with no drivers or installation needed.

Higher Education
Like all Privia instruments, the PX-S3000 features Duet mode, which splits the keys into two equal pitch ranges for performances or educational settings. A teacher and student, or two students, can be seated at the same instrument. The PX-S3000's Duet mode also has a Pan feature, which allows true two-student-per-instrument compatibility with all popular piano lab systems.

It probably means 5 different settings for touch curve. Just like for example Kawai's Heavy+, Heavy, Normal, Light, Light+.
I doubt it means that the velocity is measured only in 5 different levels. laugh

But it does sound like you can't edit the levels key by key.

The PX-S3000 has the Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard
Not the:
Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II

Apparently it doesn't have a triple sensor.
