It was presented at musik messe and is the replacement of the Px-150.

More and better sounds are promissed and also the keybed seems to be upgraded. Did anyone get handson experience with it?

All the blurb so far has said the keybed / action is unchanged, and the sound engine (pretty much) unchanged (over the x50 series) - if what you're saying is true, it's the first I've heard floated of any upgrade to the action.

Better speakers, better connectivity options, some sounds (non-piano, I thought) and some reverb / DSP modes added?

Yes, that's what was indicated by casio. The Electric Pianos and String sounds from the PX-5S have been back ported to the PX160, but the piano sounds are unchanged. Supposedly the speaker system has been improved (though not sure how it has been improved) and for sure they've added dedicated line outs for a keyboard Amp/monitors or to feed to a PA system. The action is the same. So, it's a very minor improvement from an engineering standpoint. And yet, these improvements do address some of the main shortcomings (especially the lack of connectivity) of the PX-150 which is still an excellent keyboard in that price range.

Is it true they will be lowering the PX150 price? If so, let say at $400 or $450 would this be hard to beat for best bang for your buck for digital pianos under $1000?
I mean CDP130 is at $400 and P35 is at $450 I believe still.

Here where I live, they stuck the price at 699 which is the same as a PX-350 which made me want one of those instead. After rationalizing on that I ended up getting a great deal for the PX-5S. I enjoy the E-pianos on it but I haven't played much with the strings yet.

With line out you should be able to do onboard and monitors at the same time. If you are even considering using external monitors the px160 is probably worth the upgrade from the px150.
