Hey so I'm buying a digital piano, I'm a beginner by the way. And I just can't find any comparisons between the Casio PX-S1000 and the Kawai ES-110 (or well there is one in Taiwanese or something on Youtube and well I understand nothing).

So far it seems people prefer the Kawai ES-110 based on what I have read here but idk, it seems to be because of the action being better than the Casio PX-S1000. Something about the Casio having too light action and sort of not letting build strenght on your fingers or something because they are that light.


Another thing is that I would love to connect the Digital Piano to my PC and use it as a controller now and then, I guess this can be done with both of these brands?

Anyways please make me wiser, I'm about to go crazy here -.-.

Thanks

I have the PX-S1000 and I like it in every way except that it is somewhat difficult to play on the keys when you press them down near the back of them.

This will probably not be a problem for a beginner because you will seldom need to do this.

I have also owned many Kawai digital pianos and the action on them is well known to be of a high quality.

So, in general I would say that either of these will be just fine for you.

Hello peshti, welcome to the forum.

Yes, both models feature Bluetooth MIDI functionality, allowing you to connect to a smartphone/tablet or Mac (Windows not to easily...).

The PX-S1000 has a USB-MIDI port built in, while the ES110 uses standard MIDI IN/OUT DIN ports, which will require a (relatively inexpensive) MIDI-to-USB cable in order to connect directly to a computer.

Kind regards,
James

IMHO - Kawai ES110 - better piano

Casio PX-S1000 - better electric keyboard

I have a Baldwin acoustic and a Casio PX-S3000, and I prefer the Casio over the acoustic. The keyboard is awesome, the Grand Piano Sound is excellent, and it is very light and easy to move if you want to. As my signature says, no complaints, I'd buy it again.


Casio PX-S3000
Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

The issue with playing towards the fall board affecting volume is substantial, irregardless of ability level.

I imagine some people have more finger strength and play mostly with their fingers curled. Others, like myself, really don't like the action slowing me down, it's very noticeable for some of us. So big no for people like me for buying the Casio. As a general purpose board it really does have some compelling features for its price point.

Kawai is a piano-centric company and it really shows, even with their budget model the es110. And if you've the cash to spare, the jump up to the es520 is pretty major in many ways, and it does have a USB port for connecting to a computer
