Yes, that's my own term for the sound some digitals provide. wink

Of course, nobody here advised anyone to just buy something they hate the sound off.

That's up to interpretation.

I was today in one store that have new Casio CDP-S100 which is the same size and similar keyboard to PX-S1000 (frankly I don`t know the difference except `Smart` in the name of action).Unfortunately I was in a rush and try it only for couple of minutes just to lay down fingers on action. So, without definitive conclusions, this basic model doesn`t look cheap. It has fine texture on keys, and if I compare that to my Kawai ES100, I think Casio has a slightly harder action and looks better. Overall, it is very compact size DP, looks good, feel under fingers is good and it is fantastic mobile solution for anyone who wants to play anywhere. I was playing a little between the keys and seems to me that size have some little influence over playability, but don`t take my words too serious because this is just a first contact with it. Maybe I will change my mind when I spend more time with it. Definitely I would love to have one of this no matter other DP I have probably because it is very compact and cute. I suppose that PX-S1000 looks and feel even better.

Looks like Musician Friends and Kraftmusic has the S1000 in stock on their website.(Kraftmusic showing keyboard is in stock, not the SP-34 3 pedal or CS-68 furniture stand).
Seems B&H have the bundle cheaper, with a different bench and include keyboard cover.

The sound demos are so drab it's no wonder there's sudden silence in this thread. But these pianos might turn into good controllers anyway.

Agreed...my relationship with my ex-AP470 was love at first sight but then it turned out to be more like a one night stand...and then a marriage where I could not stand them anymore...yes I am an ex-Casio divorcee...:)

PX-S1000 is still primarily positioned as someone's first DP, and the regulars here already have their first DP (if not second or third)...

Although it was meant to be intended as humour...there is a slight element of truth in that this thread generated 11 pages worth of interest...:) but sure your hypothesis works too.

Thankfully the Kawai ES100 was my first DP, so I got spared from that kind of first piano punishment. wink

Can you / do you have time to say what caused the divorce? The AP470 is one I have on my list in case things get desperate (unwell acoustic plus weakening 90's Casio and awaiting BREXIT decisions to decide where I'll end up living.)

Sure - firstly, let me elaborate that I am picky (not a little but very so perhaps some of the negatives its me not you, i.e. the piano, sort of thing) and secondly let me give some background.

I came across this model on YouTube and doing a bit of research I thought it looked really good on paper for the price it was on offer.
So off I went to a local shop in my area where they had it on display and having sat and played for a good while and the salesperson (who either was a very good pianist or knew that particular piece very well) played it for me and I was instantly sold. I bought it on the spot (yeah I know - my mistake, always trial, walk away, trial some more and then decide).

Like a relationship, it's living with/playing with, when you learn how much you click with that someone or something in this case.

From what I remember, the pros for me were, speaker system (40W with a 2 x 2) it filled the room nicely, AiR sound source it's okay (nothing to write home about but certainly more than okay to practice with), the lid opening (what's not to like there), the price (a lot of features for the price range), Cordana app tweaking ambience/hammer noise/speed of hammer etc.

The things I did not like and ultimately were they deciding factor, first and foremost the action (yes this is very personal so applies to me directly and this is why you should go back and play it several times, hopefully enough to know you will like it or not) it was too light, I tend to lean towards slightly more firm actions like the NWX or the Fatar TP40W now (which is actually even more heavy than the NWX). Secondly, the decay/loop effect was so obvious to my ears, to me a piano decay drops in volume as you hold the note whereas this one seem to go on forever before you noticed the subtlety of the sound fading - that one really annoyed me. The record to USB function, a total gimmick as the recordings are so low in their volume you can barely hear them unless you run them in a DAW and up the gain.

So if the action is good for you, don't care much about the decay/loop and don't mind doing a bit of post editing after recording (if you even plan to record your playing) then you might be onto something. As for me, I made up mind and that was the end of that.
