Product Description

Offering an affordable and rewarding piano solution, the Korg SP170 88 Key Digital Piano features an authentic feel and a captivating sound to satisfy the student, novice, or seasoned player. With a clean, fresh design that omits the traditional control panel, the portable and stylish SP-170 emphasizes the vital piano elements: a comfortable keyboard and satisfying sound. The two skillfully sampled concert grand piano sounds capture all the nuances of the performer's touch. A total of ten sounds are provided, including electric pianos, harpsichord, organs, strings, and more. Korg's new Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) faithfully reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano and the Key Touch Control offers three levels of sensitivity to match the keyboard response to any playing style. The SP-170's compact body houses a robust, built-in speaker system to deliver a deep and powerful sound along with a Reverb effect which adds depth and spaciousness to the sound; Chorus adds warmth and motion. Two headphone jacks allow for parent/child or student/teacher private practice, or for just sharing with friends. A Damper pedal and music rest complete the SP-170. Compact, unobtrusive, and designed for the modern world, the SP-170 Digital Piano solidly delivers the essential elements of a piano: rich, vibrant sounds and an authentic grand piano feel. Styled to mimic an acoustic piano, the SP-170 boasts a simple and clean design which eliminates the need for a control panel. In place of knobs, buttons and switches, the SP-170 relies on the keys themselves to perform these functions. The built-in stereo sound system features two efficient speakers housed in a bass reflex enclosure to deliver powerful sound. You can choose from two colors - chic black and elegant white - to match the decor of any room. The SP-170 is also lightweight and easy to transport, making it an ideal choice for concerts or live use.

If you're looking for a versatile keyboard synth, this is not it. This is a piano. The other sounds are fun (Fender Rhodes is great), but that isn't why I bought it or what I plan to do with it. Two things I was looking for: awesome piano samples, and a realistic touch. This Korg does those very well, even better (IMHO) than the Yamaha P95. Of course saying a digital piano is like a real piano is like saying your flight simulator is like a real airplane: every plane is different, every "real" piano plays and sounds different. So, as I discovered when shopping, I need to pick the touch and sound I like, rather than hurt myself trying to find the "most accurate" or "best" one. This unit is criticized because the controls aren't layed out in front of you; they are built in to the keys. It's a little clumsy at first, but after a few days I'm totally fine with the controls. The built in speakers actually sound pretty good in a living room, but of course won't work for stage. One criticizm: if you're a pro-audio guy, you're left to guess if the output quality from the headphone jacks is stout enough for an instrument level signal (technical details are not available, anywhere, that I could find), so I took no chances and bought a Whirlwind pcDI to stick before the mixer. If you're looking for a piano, this does it, and (if you like it) you won't find better sounds or touch at any price.

I debated between this, the SP250, Yamaha P85, and the Casio PX-130/330. After trying the Casios and not liking to sound of them, and deciding that the SP250 was a bit expensive and heavy, I had a hard time deciding between the SP170 and P85. Both are excellent and have similar features. The SP170 is a little cheaper and looks a bit sleaker. The P85 has a couple extra functions (like layering and a metronome). I chose the SP170 and have been very happy with my decision. All 10 voices sound great, the speakers are plenty loud, and the keys feel very good, like a real piano. I bought mine online in a "bundle" and am very satisfied with all components.

There are no buttons on the keyboard (just a volume and on/off switch on the back). I was worried that changes voices would be a pain, and while it is slightly awkward, it really is not a big deal. I just wish there was a way to tell if reverb and chorus were on or off.

An excellent digital piano for the price!

We ordered this Korg Keyboard for our vacation condo so our daughter could practice while away from her regular piano. It is excellent! In every way it is excellent. Weight of the keys, the sound, the 88 keys, the ability to plug into earphones and not disturb neighbors. This was by far the best we could have purchased for the space we have and what our needs are. We are very, very pleased!

I have zero musical experience and learning the piano is on my bucket list and now that I'm retired, I decided to take lessons. I shopped for 'real' pianos, and was stunned to find that there are many, many, available for less money than this Korg keyboard! (An auction near me sold a Starck baby grand piano in excellent condition for $350.) However, practically speaking, I can put the Korg under my arm and move it to another location. I have a nice but inexpensive stand that I can carry around with the other hand. The Korg never needs tuning. The cat is not attracted to it.

If you are buying a digital piano to learn how to play with the aid of a real teacher, you need to be aware of a few things. First, you want to make sure that your piano has a 'piano feel' to it (weighted keys), and that the keys are standard size. When you go from your digital piano to your teachers (probably real) piano, you may have a problem if you are playing on non-standard keys; your brain will be training your fingers on where they should be, and on a keyboard with narrower keys, this will not translate well. Even though the Korg's keys are weighted, my teacher has a 55 year old baby grand and the keys are much heavier than on my Korg and that tends to throw me off a bit.

I went to a large music store in Grand Rapids, MI, and tried a couple of Yamahas and a couple of Casios and Rolands, but I kept coming back to the Korg. I love that it doesn't have a bunch of non-piano stuff that I don't care about. The top is not cluttered with panels and buttons for dozens of 'voices'; there is no rhythm section.

I received this item within 3 days of making the order despite choosing the free shipping which was a very pleasant surprise. So far I have to say that I am very impressed. The sound is good and the keyboard to my huge surprise is lightweight. At first I worried that this would mean that the keys don't have the hammer action but they are piano like enough for me.
The hammer action is not the best but it is passable enough. One thing though is do buy another pedal rather than using the one that comes with the keyboard. The pedal is one of those little box like things that sinks into the carpet as you try to set on it. I bought the M-Audio SP-2 pedal and I am happy.
