When I came across the Privia PX 110 in the UK, I stopped bought it and never looked back since then. It's been ten years and this beast has made its money 50x times... (ok... not so much, but).

The action to me feels better than anything else I've tried my hands on (digital and reasonably priced. I'm not about to compare a 400$ instrument (cause this is how much I got it: 200 GBP) with a 7000$ one)...

HOWEVER, when a friend of mine, under my guidance bought the PX330, the feeling was different... Less satisfactory than I found my PX 110 to be. And the same applies to the PX 350 that I tried in Frankfurt in 2013... :-/ so not sure what's going on.

Regardless the Privia series is a solid series, selling quite well, doing great and very very reasonably priced!

It feels and sounds like an actual upright acoustic. The lack of a 3rd sensor makes no difference whatsoever.


Typical...you completely ignore the subject at hand, and the recent commentary. Your statement that there isn't a $1300 "stage piano" to directly compare to Casio...this is relevant, how?

What, is this state of affairs somehow Casio's fault ??

Also, I have no idea why you have suddenly specified and focused upon a "stage piano" (slab style). I am not clear as to how that is germane to this discussion...especially since my original post concerned the Casio PX-850, and how (in my opinion) it's action was as good as DPs costing twice as much.

Of course, as you are an admitted beginner, I fully expect you have no appreciation for the difference between a two and three-sensor key system. In any event, I suspect that reproducing the action of an acoustic Upright was not exactly the goal Yamaha was shooting for, with their P-155.

Furthermore, the fact that I am even bothering to reply to you, at all, speaks to the degree of inebriation I currently find myself in. It is a holiday, and the Patriots and Red Sox both had miraculous wins last night.

P.S. -- The Yamaha P-155 is a fine digital piano. I tried one before ultimately deciding on the Casio PX-850. I preferred the PX-850 for many reasons, the most important being quality of action, keyboard responsiveness, piano tones, as well as sound/speaker quality. My humble opinion, of course.


I could choose a different piano such as the MP10. You have made it plainly obvious that the Px-850 console is better for classical music than the MP10 because of a 3rd sensor and other crap like grand piano lid simulation, Multi-
Dimensional Morphing AiR Sound ...

Sorry, but even a novice such as myself understands that digitals only sound acceptable through high quality headphones. Consoles are for vanity and serve no functional purpose.

Spread the word to the rest of the useless technology crusaders. "Rejoice, The $1000 Casio is better than the $2500 MP10" ...the engineer has spoken.

Ask your wife/girlfriend what she prefers in living room - console or stage piano...

@Tritium, it certainly doesn't hurt either that PX-850 is rather new, while P-155 is from 2009.

perhaps a $2500 DP is just overpriced and the Casio one is right on the money.

I know Roland's are. smile
