I just bought this piano and info on this is very sparse.

I got it cheap and really liked the action. Actually more than I liked the casio px130 and yamaha p-85. And I also liked the option to switch the action from light to hard.

It's in really good shape and sound good it got 64 note polyphone. But the sound was not that important I figured I could use it with a sample library.

So anyone got any info? The seller said he bought it new in 2005. What was retail price when new? There's almost no videos on youtube about it.

This was probably around a 2005 model. I happen to think the ZPI sound source was one of the best that Casio has made.It has the older action which is stiffer and you may find it to be noisy. This piano is fairly well loaded with rhythms, drum loops, accompaniment, and other instrument sounds. It is a pretty nice package--Great Find. If the AP (double layer sample) doesn't appeal to you, you can connect this up to a computer.

Thanks I was after some subjective thoughts. Since I'm not an experienced player at all. So it would be fun to hear what more experienced people think of it. I'm happy and I guess that's all that counts.
