The award winning grand piano sound in Privia has been dramatically improved. The new PX-350 utilizes more than three times the memory of the previous generation for a more natural piano tone. In addition, Casio’s new proprietary sound source "AiR" (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) provides unmatched realism and detail. This engine provides seamless dynamics for a remarkably expressive and powerful performance. For further realism a new Damper Resonance simulator provides the rich sound of the strings when the sustain pedal is used.The new PX-350 also features a new redesigned 88 note Tri-sensor scaled hammer action keyboard. This new action features new simulated Ebony and Ivory textured keys for a incredible feel and it’s three sensors capture the dynamics of a performance with unparalleled speed and accuracy. To further enhance the experience, the action and the sound engine take into consideration the speed at which different sized hammers move inside acoustic grand relative to velocity the keys are pressed, this timing nuance provides the ultimate key to sound experience.The PX-350 has a total of 250 instrument tones built-in. Strings, organs, electric pianos, brass, drums, bass and more and with the PX-350’s registration capability you can store your favorite splits and layers for live performance use. The PX-350 also has 180 drum patterns with full auto accompaniment and a 17 track recorder for composing your own songs. Ready for the stage or studio, the PX-350 has 1/4" audio outputs so you can easily connect the PX-350 to recording and sound reinforcement equipment. The optional CS-67 puts the PX-350 at the proper height but can easily be removed so you can take the 25 pound digital piano to the gig. The optional SP-33 pedal system provides the same 3 pedal functionality as a grand piano.

At first I was somewhat surprised to see the Casio as a consideration because I had always thought of Casio more in terms of calculators and "toy" keyboards. I also looked at buying used models which had fallen in price but then you are looking at dated technology, no warranty and the action on those keyboards is often less than desirable.
I spent some time researching and found that the PX-350 met the key specs I was looking for, which were primarily: good 88-key action, good sounds and portability. I was very impressed with the quality build of this keyboard and the sounds - in particular the piano and electric pianos. The biggest feature that I like is that it has speakers on the unit so you don't have to plug it in to play. The feeling of the keyboard and the ivory touch of the keys is nice, in fact nicer than many other higher priced keyboard and synths that I tried. It truly feels like you are playing an acoustic piano and you really can't appreciate this unless you play it!
Casio was very smart to focus on this market segment. In my case I was holding on to an old Korg N1 which was weighted key but bad bad action, older technology and just too heavy for my son to take back and forth to the church - we nicknamed the case for the N-1 the "coffin" because it honestly looks and weighs like a small coffin. Before I came across the Privia series I was looking at models like the Roland Juno G and other synth type of options in the <1k price range. I have to say, some of those synth models have more bells and whistles in terms of sounds but their keyboard action was just horrible. I own a baby grand and both my son and I are amazed at how good the PX-350 keys and action feel in comparison.
I have to say it is just a "fun" instrument -- I find my self playing more often than I have in many years. I am still learning all of the features but one of the neat things is the main features are easy to pickup quickly. I am already using the rhythm section and am starting to pick up the 17 track recording feature. I like that you can use a USB thumb drive to record but also you can use it to hook in a usb light to assist with reading buttons in the dark or even use it to charge your iphone.
My only complaints are I wish they could have made the lcd screen and buttons a little bigger and easier to read. But these are very minor things. I bought the Previa soft case which is very nice but they didn't make the pockets big enough to fit the music stand into. I imagine these are things they will address in future editions. One thing that I really liked, there are a lot of youtube instruction and review videos and other materials available about this keyboard online even though it hasn't been around very long.
In summary - I would recommend this product without reservation. I am one of these guys that researches things to death and told myself if liked the way this purchase turned out I would write my first Amazon review for others to benefit from. If you were like me and playing more dated technology this is a good product and time to move up to a whole new level at what I feel is a reasonable price!
Your opinion about this keyboard will differ depending on your purpose for this piano. My purpose is self-enjoyment in a college house that I share with 2 other guys. I needed something high quality without bothering my roomies.
When I carefully pulled this keyboard out of it's box I had no choice but to revel its sleek professional appearance. The red felt is a classy touch, and just has an overall clean look. After admiring it like a new born child, I hooked it up. They keys are weighted very nicely and the texture was surprisingly comfortable. I'll explain the cons first and later the pros, as it matches my experiences through the progression of discovering this piano.
CONS: After placing it on my stand I noticed you cannot plug in a basic 1/8 headphone jack. It requires a 1/4 converter. So I began playing anyway because there was no way I was going to wait. I will admit as I began to play, the sound through the internal speakers sounded a little dull from the get go. The keys do make a noticeable noise upon playing them. This is expected within this price range. It really isn't that bad though. Also, it really doesn't get that loud either. And when it does get loud, the speakers do rattle on a few notes when you really pound on the keys. I've considered contacting Casio about this, maybe they'll send me a new keyboard.
PROS: I got this keyboard so I could play this through my headphones. I wanted my own world to create music without anyone else listening. I bought a 1/4 converter and plugged in my old Sony headphones. The sound was exceptionally better than the speakers! Key clicking vanished. Completely and utterly night and day. It sounded like an entirely different instrument altogether. I was impressed! The keyboard is finally alive and sounding great.
About a month later my girlfriend surprised me on Christmas with a set of Audio Technica M-50 headphones. My lord she is perfect isn't she? I'm a freak when it comes to sound quality. These high quality studio headphones are about ~125 dollar headphones currently. Highly highly recommended by the way. I was so excited to plug these in... they even have their own 1/4 attachment!
Anyway, as soon as I played the first notes... I was literally shocked. I never thought my keyboard was capable of such a natural tone. It was such a sweet moment. Suddenly I could clearly hear the extremely precise detail and response to even the slightest change of input. Instantly you could realize why this keyboard's younger brother was so highly raved. Hitting deep notes with the resonance pedal was MIND BLOWING. Natural decay sounded unbelievably accurate. All of the notes instantly gained exceptional clarity. I can't express to you how pure and accurate this grand piano sound sounds. To this day it's still so refreshing to hear the first notes each time I turn it on. The sound is ridiculously amazing for a piano of this price!!!
I haven't tried to plug my amp into this keyboard yet but I can imagine the result is the same. You NEED quality equipment to bring out the beauty of this instrument. I would go as far to say it's ---> undoubtedly a requirement. <--- You will not be satisfied otherwise. At least once you hear it's ACTUAL quality... you will never go back. It truly has a beautifully rich and vivid sound. I can't even express how much I love this keyboard. I get a big ole fat grin on my face every single time I pull the cover off of this baby. It looks like a work of art and it sure as hell sounds like one too. I haven't even begun to discover the amazing capabilities of this piano either. The "concert grand piano" (it's natural tone) has had me completely satisfied and hooked. I haven't even cracked open the manual. So you could say that this is only half of the story... To be continued :) All in all? Pull the trigger on this keyboard!!!
The action is very good and firm, although if the volume is turned down a clunking noise from the keys is noticeable and a little annoying. (To my fingers, it plays like a stiff grand, not a squishier upright.) The sound is adequate; I've mostly used the Concert Grand setting which really demands a precise strength of touch to get the desired tone, especially when playing p or pp. It is very easy to lose notes with light playing. (The touch on the other piano settings is less stiff, but there's less dynamic range.)
When I was doing research I compared this with pianos from the Yamaha line; the price for the Casio attracted me but once I started ordering everything I needed (stand, pedal assembly, etc.) the price was really about the same as the comparable Yamaha. I preferred the touch on the Casio, however (it really is nice to play and I prefer the matte-r finish on the keys to the shiny polished plastic feel of other keyboards).
So, overall I am satisfied. BUT. There is a persistent buzzing/rattling on the Concert Grand sound when striking the A/B/C above middle C. The piano is on carpet and not against walls or anything that would vibrate. The buzz comes from the right top speaker area, from what I can tell. Not a dealbreaker, but pretty annoying.
