Casio PX-750 Review
At one time, standard pianos were the only option for people who wanted strong, full sounds. That is no longer the case. Now, digital pianos often sound as good as traditional pianos do, and they have some other benefits as well.
Casio’s Privia line is one of the most popular digital piano options on the market today. While the entire line is popular, the Casio PX750 has generated the most attention. Take a moment to see if this digital piano lives up to its hype.
How Does The Casio PX-750 Sound?
You don’t want to buy a piano without knowing how it sounds. After all, that is the most important aspect of the piano. The PX-750 has the best sound out of the Privia line, due in large part to the AiR sound source and the technology it uses with the sustain pedal. Like its big brother the Casio PX850, the 750 puts forth a full spectrum 128 notes of polyphony.
What Is The AiR Sound Source?
The AiR (Acoustic and intelligent Resonator) sound source accesses and uses grand piano samples in order to make the digital piano sound like a grand piano. While AiR is nothing new, the PX750 has more than three times the storage space, meaning that AiR has access to more than three times the samples. This allows it to create highly realistic tones that match even the finest of grand pianos.

What Are Some Features Of The PX-750?
The piano comes with two 8W speakers, creating a dual 16W speaker system. The system is powerful enough to fill the room. The system is also clear enough to sound like a grand piano.
Those who want additional sound options can connect external speakers or an amplifier to the output jacks on the Casio. Then, they can get even more power.
In addition to the speakers, users have the option of plugging headphones into the system. That way, they can play the music without disturbing others, so you can play anytime you want – even in the dead of night. The headphones sound very clear as well.
One of the biggest benefits of this system over a traditional grand piano is you can record your own performances. This makes it easy for people to track their progress. This is also a great feature for piano teachers who want to record their students. The 750 possesses a dual-track recorder, same as the Yamaha PSR E343.
The sustain pedal also adds to the realistic sounds that this digital piano produces. When touching the pedal on the Casio PX-750, it uses a Damper Resonance and Hammer Response Simulator to mimic the sound of strings. This makes it sound as if you are playing a real grand piano as opposed to a digital one.
Want To Play Different Instruments?
While this piano is known for reproducing grand piano sounds, it also has other instruments available to play, just like the Yamaha P255. Some of the 18 different tones you can play include:
- Electric pianos
You can play tones individually or use split and layer techniques. If you choose the latter, you can play the bass with your left hand while playing two additional tones with your right hand. This makes it sound as if you have a full band at your disposal instead of just a single digital piano
What Is Duet Mode?
If you are using the Casio PX-750 to teach others how to play piano, you will likely enjoy the Duet mode. By separating the keyboard into two different ranges, you can play along with your student instead of looking over their shoulder. This makes it much easier to give lessons and allows for a much more interactive and fulfilling experience for the pupil.

What Additional Features Does The Casio PX-750 Have?
The PX750 has a variety of additional features. It comes with:
- Full set of 88-Keys with ebony and ivory textures provide the ultimate piano feel
- USB to PC connectivity (as also found on the Yamaha PSR E243), as well as USB MIDI to use in conjunction with an iPad or Apple Camera Connection Kit
- Tri-sensor scaled hammer action keyboard simulates a real piano experience. Each of the weighted keys employ 3 separate sensors (one more than most digital pianos) to give the feel of a genuine grand piano
- Brilliance, Chorus, and Reverb digital effects serve to enhance the sound of your play
All of these features work together to create a powerful system. The piano itself and the included stand are both available in either black, white, or brown finishes to suit your tastes.
What Could Be Be Better?
The PX750 emits some key noise. You can easily mask the noise though by turning up the volume or using headphones. However, if you unplug the headphones and keep the piano at a low volume, you will likely hear the noise.
Speaking of headphones, depending on the type of cord, may require an adapter in order to plug into the provided jack.
