      MIDI Out/Thru FAIL

          Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

          I am so disappointed! This keyboard is perfect except for one glaring flaw. The MIDI Out/Thru only works one way or the other, it is NOT a merger. This means there is never a reason to plug anything INTO the MIDI In if you want it to go through. Seriously CASIO, you didn't allow both the thru and out of the MIDI port to work at the same time (MERGE)? There are work-arounds, but I hate the lack of flexibility here. This was a five star plus keyboard, until I found the one problem with it. For me, it is a doozy. I'd still buy this keyboard again, but beware the MIDI jack implementation is faulty. #px5salmostperfect

          Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

          The Casio PX-5S Pro Stage Piano is a beautiful instrument. You get more than what you pay for here, with a huge variety of sounds and features. It can be frustrating at first to figure out navigation, how to create your own tones, stage settings, and such. The manual is not very helpful, but with the available YouTube videos out there, and discussions on the Casio website, it becomes much easier, and it's a great setup! Overall, this is a great keyboard at a great price, and I would highly recommend this for the experienced pianist looking for performing, and working on compositions.

            This keyboard does everything I needed and wanted it to do and more-you'd have to get to $2K to $3K to get anywhere near it in another manufacturer. Strongly recommended if you're serious about keyboards.

                  I have owned most all brands including the privia 330 which I loved... this is better... the controller functions alone are worth the price.. I will never own another board that weighs in at 60 lbs... An absolute joy to play... and when you have one... you'll understand and be like a shiny object fan boy or girl ... It is that cool... I played it on battery power through a battery powered Roland amp and everyone was stunned on the clarity of the sound... It is no longer about the money spent but about the execution of amazing technology

                    Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

                    I like very much this Casio Privia PX-5S keyboard. I think that it may be my best synth yet after owning several other brands in the past. There is something very vintage about this keyboard and its sounds that resonate well with me so I had to buy it. I think that it was one of the best purchases that I have made. I love the sounds and find it easy to navigate the menus and knobs. I pretty much play it every day, posting my music on Youtube to share with myself and strangers. It is great.

                    Comments about Casio Privia PX-5S Pro Stage Piano:

                    I've owned this product for three months now and I am absolutely delighted with it. I bought it because I joined a blues/rock band this year and we have just started playing gigs.

                    1) The light weight means it's fully portable - I mean it's still an effort (there's 88 whole keys to lug) but your back should not suffer. Crucially, this means you get to play the thing out regularly
                    2) The feel/action is very impressive - my previous experience is good (and not so good) upright pianos and a yamaha clavinova (oh and one Bechstein grand a couple of times which did feel amazing). Each piano, digi or real, takes some adjustment but my hands were extremely happy with it within a couple of days. And you can really pound it if that's your thing. And it doesn't hurt the next day.
                    3)The inbuilt sounds are great (esp the pianos) but you can customize and layer pretty much everything. And you can make your own sounds too. This is not my area of expertise but it doesn't matter because better users than I are already sharing more sounds than you can cope with on the forums.
                    4) The level of support on Facebook and the Casio web pages/forums is ridiculously good. First question I had was answered by some senior guy in Casio within a minute (and it was a dumb one about a pedal). And he got it right. But not just casio employees - the level of enthusiasm for this keyboard is palpable and a real community has developed to make the most of it (this largely resolves the poor instructions problem some people have complained of). Check out the facebook page to see.

                    I can't recommend this enough. I'm out playing live music again for the first time in ages and having a wonderful time.

                          First off, I have owned a Privia home-style piano for several years and I am happy with it. Several people play them professionally in my area. So when it was time to buy a stage piano that would be 'stage friendly,' I thought the PX-5S would be a hands-down winner. On paper, it certainly is a winner, IMO. The feature-set is quite good indeed. However, I need a strong acoustic piano sound above all else, and after living with PX-5S for two weeks I finally admitted (although I didn't want to) that the piano sound is not to my taste. The top register very good, however I found the mid-range portion of the piano to sound like a piano with only (1) string, instead of three. The bass registers were OK for me; however I think many people would agree that the three middle octaves are where we get most of our work done. My other issue was with the touch of the piano. The physical action was good for me, however, 'how' it played the notes dynamically felt strange to me, despite my experimenting by editing touch settings in the 'system' menu. FYI, I use a Roland KC-300 keyboard amp, or a single JBL EON 2 (15") for amplification. I really wanted to LOVE this instrument, but I just can't. I'm giving four stars because this is a good instrument, and will satisfy many musicians' needs without question.. AND, sound is subjective.

                          The PX-5S has a great sound set, complete control over said sounds (effects, EQ, even waveform), and works extremely well as a MIDI controller. It performed well as my sole keyboard at a recent gig. I thought the electric pianos on the PX-3 were good, but the EPs on the PX-5 are stellar. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the Hex Layers, Arpeggios, and Phrase Recording/Editing. I played a Yamaha S90-ES for a few years as part of a church band, and that has been my "benchmark" since then. I think the PX-5S does everything the S-90 does but is easier to program and is much, much lighter. The weak spot on this keyboard is the owner's manual that is packaged with the keyboard. It doesn't get into any editing. You need to download an additional "tutorial," and even that isn't very useful. The support from Casio and from the PX-5S user community is outstanding, however, and there is no shortage of tutorial material on YouTube and Facebook.

                          Really great sound quality and action on the keys. The 4 knobs and 6 sliders make adjusting your sound on the fly easy as can be. 100 pre-set stage settings mean you can put on a show straight out of the box. Literally, pick a song and there's a stage setting that will do a pretty bang-up job without any editing. Can't find what you're looking for - you can edit ANY tone and create your own stage settings, the sky is the limit!

                          Best Feature - EVERYTHING is assignable, 2 pedals, 6 sliders, 4 knobs - do whatever you want!

                          Slght downside - lots and lots of options that can be confusing at first (check out Mike Martin's great live clinic for help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFPooBIzCLo )

                          I played Casio's predecessor to this model the PX-3 and the PX-5 is a substantial upgrade. The piano sound with Casio's new AIR engine is so much closer to the real thing. There is a lot more realistic sympathetic resonance that was missing on the PX-3. The sound is much more detailed giving you a lot more expressive possibilities. I think the piano is in the same league as Nord's stage piano which is much more expensive.

                          The electric piano and clav sounds are also outstanding.

                          The PX-5 also has usable organs with Leslie simulation. It's not as good as other I've heard, but if your main bag isn't organ, the PX-5 should be equal to the task.

                          Although the PX-5 has an itsy bitsy screen they've made navigation as painless as possible given this limitation. Its saving grace is the free PC software editor which has a nice clean and straight-forward user interface. It makes editing easy, breezy. I haven't tried editing on the keyboard itself, and I don't see myself going down that road given the availability of the editing software.

                          The hex layers are also darn cool. I haven't done much with them yet, but they sound great.

                          I love the key bed of the PX-5. It has a simulated ivory texture on the keys, which was a little weird at first, but I quickly learned to like it. The action is great and it's hard to believe it's not actually weighted.

                          The assignable knobs and sliders are about all you really need for live performance. For example, if you have a split keyboard you can now mix your sound with these controls. It's great to add reverb and delay on the fly.

                          This keyboard is an incredible value! It's a really robust stage piano and less than half the price of some other comparable keyboards.
