The action is on par with any I’ve played, including my own Motif ES 8, and the new triple-layer ZPI stereo acoustic piano sound is equally stunning. I also own a Yamaha U1 upright piano, so I can easily compare the keyboard action on both, and like the others have said, the keyboard action on this thing is very nice, a little stiffer than the acoustic but I like it better, because I can “dig in” better, very smooth, not clunky at all, and the keys do not bottom out hard if you know what I mean. I haven’t noticed any problem with Polyphony, but I play chordal style with full chords in both hands using inversions and breaking them up in rythm with a little melody thrown in for good meausre. I used a Casio WK on stage a couple weeks.. I suspect the new triple layer ZPI stereo piano makes a difference. Without more polyphony it’s a little hard to make use of all the arranger features and sounds this keyboard has but it is a nice instrument.

It is in dire need to be bumped up to fasio voice The biggest omission is in the arranger in all Casio keyboards No matter how inexpensive it is,without this ability, it is useless to most pro players and more in line with the beginner or hobbyist.
This has never been addressed in any of their auto accompaniment instruments;all other arrangers Yamaha,Roland,Korg and the recently deceased Technics provide this very necessary feature.

I’ve also find that the default stereo piano is really nice by itself if I layer it with the grand piano it sound almost too full – I guess that is personal preference, I wish it had some kind of EQ – so I could balance it better to my taste. Playing over top of sequences creates a little havoc Unfortunately I played the long ago and I don’t remember what I didn’t like about it, but I know I like the sound of the newer over the older Privias. It was a recondioned unit. This is a very light portable digital piano, However the 32 note polyphony is very deceptive.
The one big problem with the Casio’s including the WK series[also good sounds] The PX includes a built-in library of 80 favorite tunes from piano classics to Jazz to better help you learn to play, as well as rhythms. Again the portability of this full 88 weighted key piano is what was very appealing to me.
