I don't suppose there's a translation anywhere? Any other specs of interest?
Polyphony?
Samples per key?

Why can't I edit any more??? stange~!
let me tell you .Polyhony max. 128
Samples per key not clear yet. Supposed to be at least the same as PX120.
However, the speaker is really improved, especially for PX720,
PX-130:(12cm x 6cm) x 2 8w+8w, PX720, PX-730:12cm x 2, 8w+8w
PX 720 has a different desgin from 130 which stimulate the real piano 's way of making sound.
* 16 different sound

THe new key action is designed in order to imrpove the speed of touching which is the drawback of the current series.

Anyway, it sounds a huge improvement from the current ones.

Incidently, the one that looks most interesting is the new PX-330. It now has a pitch-bend wheel and a nice LCD display. It looks like it would make a very nice MIDI controller.

Japanese web page is http://casio.jp/emi/privia/px330bk.html

This one will come out in August.

I was on the verge of purchasing a PX120 to use along with Pianoteq. If the changes seem sufficient enough to warrant waiting for the PX130, I will do so. I suspect retail will be the same, as the cost in yen is identical on both the 120 and 130 pages.

In regards to the action, the website says that three sensor scaling is bring the touch close to that of an acoustic grand piano. The bass is heavier, and the higher pitched notes lighter in an attempt to reproduce the feeling of a grand. Granted, the PX120 website says something along the same lines...

I wonder if there will actually be a notable difference between the two... As was mentioned earlier, the newer PX130 no longer has a MIDI terminal attached, and instead uses a USB port.

Hmm.. Pick up a new PX130? Or look for a PX120 on closeout?

Judging by past releases, I suspect that we will not see these models in the US until next spring or summer. There has been about a 9 - 12 month delay between the release of previous models in Japan and the US release. Announcements for the US release of these models will probably be made at NAMM next year with the release to follow in May or later.

I'm interested in the PX-730, seeing as I just bought a PX-720 last month. I was just about to fall into buyer's remorse when I realized that it would still take a long while before the PX-730 reaches here, and some of the improvements I don't really care about anyway. (I hardly ever use the few voices available except for the modern/classic grand piano and the current speakers are enough for me). Though I do wish the midi terminals were USB instead (Casio upgraded the PX-730 to be USB-only). I'm just curious if Casio improved the key action? It's hard for me to press repeated notes on the PX-720. The key return seems sluggish. Though that could be due to my lack of technique.

The cosmetic changes in the PX-730 seem nice. It's now available in Black Wood and Dark Cherry, and even has red felt at the top of the keys!


With technology, there's always something newer and better coming our way, so my next piano purchase will be an acoustic! grin

I've been practicing on a Privia px310 daily for almost 2 years. Unless this new model has a redesigned 3-pedal assembly, no serious player will be happy. The px310 & 320 use the sp-30 pedal unit which disentegrates in a matter of months due to cheap plastic parts. See the numerous posts on this forum. Without the Casio 3-pedal unit half-pedal is not an option. Also, why remove the midi jacks? To save $1? Most or all pro players want to be able to use external non-usb gear. The px320 already did away with the audio-in jacks that are on the px310, so I suppose this new model also doesn't have them. Why buy a DP with a speaker system you can't use with Ivory, Pianoteq, etc.? Hearing your vsti or sound module through your built-in spkrs. including feeling the keys vibrate, adds to the realism for the player, even if you're also using an external amp.

Don't you wish Casio would issue a pro model Privia? It is a great bang-for-buck instrument overall. Probably zero chance. Sigh.

Eternal Music Student,

The PX330 looks like it might have audio in/out and midi in/out (if Google Translate is correct, that is).

The stand and pedal units are also new models, the CS67 and SP32. We will see when it comes out.

Eternal Music Student -

The PX-320 has audio inputs and standard MIDI jacks. I think this would be an incorrect assumption to assume that the new model would not have these features.

Regarding the SP30, in the last 12 months in my role here at Casio America I have never received one email or phone call from a dealer or one of our sales reps that has had issue with the SP30. Finding such complaints on this forum has been a big surprise to me because in fact our return rates are so insignificant. I promise to look look into this issue further and bring it up to our colleagues at Casio Japan.

some online sites are selling the new Casio DPs already, although some say they expect more coming soon.

i found the Casio press release on this:

Mike_Martin:

It's great to hear from those who truly know. I stand corrected re: audio inputs on the px320. Also I stated that the midi jacks were going to be removed in the new model, based on what I read above. [I had to return my first privia model, 575, because it had no midi jacks, only usb.] Hopefully I was wrong there too.

But--the pedal unit "disintegration" is for real. The right or damper pedal needs to be much stronger as it's used hundreds or thousands of times daily. Mine broke long ago; I tried fixing it & gave up.

There are several threads on this forum detailing the crumminess of the sp-30 pedal unit. Put in a metal sleeve for those pins, so the pedals will be durable, and you'll have a fine product that will last. I'll then buy a new privia & give my old one to my sister!

It looks like Casio really improved the whole lot of Privia. I can't wait till these come out and I can hear people's impressions and reviews.

I thought they knocked up the prices, but it looks like zzsounds and such say they are the same, so I guess I was wrong.

I should have added this to my previous post, except I just came across it. It is the press release from Casio that list the changes in the Privia line. The website is: casio-europe.com/euro/news/article/1366.

Also, Casio has replaced all of their celviano models.

Finding such complaints on this forum has been a big surprise to me because in fact our return rates are so insignificant.

To Mike Martin:
I was wondering if Casio is also unaware of the problem of noisy keybeds on many of your Privia digital piano line. When the keys return they bounce and make a mechanical clack. It usually begins with select notes then becomes more pronounced with use as many other keys do the same thing. There is a video on youtube that documents the problem on a PX 200. My PX 575 began doing this after a couple months of use. Does Casio plan to address this issue?

I've heard of this problem as well. People comment that it's almost as if some keypads wear out after so much use and then become very noisy. I've even heard of some saying they had to resort to isolated earphones to block out the "clacking" noise while they play.

Good question galaxy, I hope Mike addresses answers this as well.

Hmm.. My sister has an older PX110 that I play on from time to time, and it seems to have the noisy key problem as well. I am somewhat skeptical as to whether the action has been changed or not.

ZZsounds and Samedaymusic have actually removed the PX130 that was linked above.

Guitarcenter has it listed under pre-order status, and claims that they will be available on August 3rd.
