Well, I doubt it could be done now after the fact, but it would have been nice if it had been designed with that in mind.

Maybe something like the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile speaker II or the mini version would sit comfortably on the battery cover. The battery is rechargeable, too, and so it doesn't necessarily have to be plugged in.

Thanks for the answer voxpops!
Gives me a little confidence that the PX-5S will be the right choice for me.
I have a little Logitech UE speaker that probably could double as a monitor for small jams, but im pretty sure it stops there, haha.

What monitor are you using with it, voxpops?
I am concidering a Rokit 5 monitor. Hopefully one will do for my little room.

The Rokit 5's are nice monitors, but depending on the sounds you want to create you might want a subwoofer too. I have the Rokit 5's and use them mostly for recording but I have used them on my MOX8.

I'm currently using a Roland CM-220 setup and it sounds great! The speakers will mount on standard microphone stands and I have used them live without issue. They can be real loud if needed.
CM-220 Link

There is also a less powerful version that would work just as well in the home studio. CM-110 Link

Deltron, I have Yamaha HS80M monitors for home use. They're chunky, but very good with regard to fidelity (and don't require a sub). Otherwise, I use either a pair of Roland CM30 monitors for light stage/rehearsal use, a Roland SA300 stage amp for gigs, or Mackie SRM350s.

I'm still trying to learn to love the piano sample in the PX. It has quite a realistic tone to it, but those plinky notes still bug the heck out of me. They're not so noticeable in chords/octaves, but stand out with flashing beacons on them during single note runs. eek If you're trying to play a lyrical melody line, they really grate. Mike Martin's revised piano patch helps smooth them out, but also affects the attack adversely in lower ranges. However, my personal preference may not be the same as yours. A number of people find the metallic attack at high velocities in the Roland SN pianos unacceptable, whereas I can live with that, and, clearly, a lot of PX purchasers are quite happy with the AP patches as they stand. This, though, is where Nord wins (at 3x the price): you don't like the Yamaha sample? Try the Bosendorfer or the Fazioli. If the PX could load an updated sample set, it would truly be the bee's knees!

Count me as one very happy with the AP sounds on the PX-5S
(and the PX-5S in general). As I said earlier when talking about speakers, it's all very subjective and personal. I do hope the hex-layer AP will cure what ails ya'! thumb

The SuperTooth Disco also looks like it could be a nice option, in terms of size, specs, and price.

If this is the one you are talking about, I like it. The blue LEDs match the PX-5S! Like that retro dial too. cool

Oh man, I was hoping they could fix that. Unfortunately, once you hear the "plink" you can't un-hear it; and it just gets worse with repeated listening.

The battery cover is about 10 1/2" x 4". You can get away with using a peripheral with a slightly larger footprint. The battery cover has a textured, almost rubberized surface so the grip is good, but I use a little Velcro to make sure my BR-800 stays in place.

Tonight at 7:30pm EST, I'll be doing a LIVE online clinic on the PX-5S. So if you have questions or there is something specific you'd like to see or hear, this is the time. This event will be recorded and then posted over on YouTube afterward. This format relies on your questions...otherwise you'll just see me staring into a camera. help

The event will be live at www.ustream.tv/casiomusicgear

When you get there you have to create an ustream account, then to the right of the video there is a Social Stream tab where you can type questions.

I hope to see you there.

Update to my post above:
I found an option in Ustream so I've changed things. There is now a CHAT window next to the video. I removed the "Social Stream". I have also allowed anonymous people in the chat. So you can ask questions without having to link a Facebook or Ustream account.

Another recommendation I would make is for a Yamaha MSR100. Incredible value for the buck, and sounds terrific. I only use one of these, as I am not overly concerned with "stereo" imaging when playing a digital piano. I have never been let down by Yamaha products.

Also, out of left field...in the possibility that you also are a guitarist, then you might want to look at the Yamaha THR10. It is a modeling amp that has the form factor of a boom box, but is based around high quality FRFR speakers. So, you can use it either as a practice guitar amp, or, if you set the amp sim to "flat", it is perfect for a personal keyboard amp.

Cheers,
John

Im searchin for Speakers like the built in speakerd in the Kawai Es7, If you possibly heard them, would you say that the Bose Soundlink or another one would do the job? cause the speakers on the Es7 are perfect/enough for MY needs. So instead of waiting for a new modell of the Px5s with built in speakers, would you recommend me some battery powered speakers which I just could put on top the Px5s?

Here's a preview of Stephane Deriau-Reine's new album, featuring the Casio PX-5S. All the music on the album will be made with the 5S, with the exception of the bass and drums.

Fabulous ! Mike will have his own cartoon series; he's starting to become a real celebrity , time for a late night show's appearance ;-)

Great idea such clinics ; proves (again) how involved Casio - and especially Mike - is with the end-users of their gear. Yammie / Roland / Korg pay attention !

I have a similar one from Sony that I used exactly for that purpose when I was in a pinch and didn't have anything besides headphones. Worked perfectly.

I ended up trying one of those out and was not impressed. I'd like to try out the Bose some time.

haha, fine

PX-5S or PX-850 shall be my next DP, after many years of Yamy DGX-620. Kawai is out of reach here in Brazil and Roland is insanely expensive. Casio is all the rage these days and got some terrific new gear. I'm also sold by the passion Mike pours into the videos :thumbsup:

It looks like this might be a very nice speaker to pair with a PX-5S

http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/iloud/

The connections are on the back, but it looks like you could still lie the speaker down over the battery cover, and just let the connections essentially hang over the back of the PX-5S.

And darn, I missed Mike's presentation last night!

Mike goes over: quick layering, hexlayer creation, arpeggiator editing and using the phrase sequencer. Great clinic, Mike. Thanks!
