Privia - PX-S7000/PX-S6000 Comprehensive Breakdown

The Privia PX-S7000/PX-S6000 aims to redefine the concept of how we interact with pianos as part of our daily life via the latest cutting-edge technology. This is achieved by combining a modern, stylish design with sound performance and tactile qualities that allow the piano to seamlessly blend into any environment. A reimagined sense of freedom and limitless playability allow you to break free from convention and discover a new way to live in harmony with your instrument. Minimalist design that is synchronized with your surroundings and the latest in original sound and tone technology merges with the experience cultivated over many years of painstakingly crafting instruments to create a new evolution in musical expression.


Style Concept

As part of our mission to redesign style we have adopted a modern form based upon a minimalist concept, focusing on clean, straight lines, breaking away from the traditional curved lines and bulkiness of conventional pianos. Both models share the same modern straight line design, including the slim body, interior-like speaker fabric as well as the same transparent music stand. The main difference is that the PX-S7000 comes complete with a fully integrated stand with a home décor style wood-grain finish and pedals giving it the aesthetic beauty of an acoustic grand piano. It features a metal frame that connects the main body with the pedals for excellent stability, and comes with a stylish felt piano cover. The PX-S6000 features a composite design that includes an organic wood-grain finish on the main body that makes it look great on its own wherever you place it, or you can combine it with the black stand that is sold separately and the felt piano cover comes with it. The style of the PX-S7000/PX-S6000 has been designed to create excellent affinity and harmony with a diverse range of lifestyles and environments. Traditional pianos are often positioned against walls so the back isn’t visible but in order to fully harmonize with your lifestyle and give you the freedom to use it anywhere in your room, the PX-S7000/PX-S6000 has been designed to look elegant from any angle, seamlessly blending into any style.


Carefully selecting the coloring is also an essential part of achieving a design that is in harmony with your lifestyle. The PX-S7000 is available in 3 colors, black, white and a unique new color variation that we like to call “Harmonious Mustard”. The Harmonious Mustard is an especially unique color that is rarely used for pianos. This elegant and warm color was developed via thorough research into current interior design trends in Europe and selected for its ability to naturally blend into a wide range of stylish living spaces. The Harmonious Mustard color also features a grand piano style polished finish to the body’s details, further enhancing the sense of luxury and style like any other carefully selected piece of furniture. The PX-S7000 comes with an integrated wood-grain-finished stand, whereas the PX-S6000 features a composite design that can be used on its own or with a black stand (sold separately). The coloring of the main body combines glossy black with a wood-grain-finished part to compliment the black stand and also make it easy to incorporate into a wide variety of interior designs. The design concept is all about being in harmony with your lifestyle and this is represented through the color of the speaker fabric, stand and felt piano cover (sold separately for PX-S6000), and metal frame (PX-S7000 only) being synchronized according to each model's primary coloring.

Piano Stool

*Release date is still undecided

A special collaboration stool has also been developed with CRASH GATE, an independent label from the long established Japanese furniture company “Seki Furniture”. The stool has been designed from the perspective of the pianist and is optimized for playing the piano. It is designed with the same straight lines and form factor as the PX-S7000 to achieve the same aesthetic of a modern digital piano. The materials used have also been very carefully selected to achieve the highest quality possible. It is made from high-grade natural wood combined with cast iron to create a solid feeling of stability and a modern, fashionable fabric that lends an excellent accent to any interior space. Two colors are available, one light and one dark to match with the piano of your choice. Style meets functionality thanks to the combined expertise of musical instrument manufacturing and furniture design, tested and perfected over many experiments of trial and error. The seat's height can be seamlessly adjusted to match the physique of the user and create the optimal sitting position for playing the piano. A relatively shallow sitting position is widely considered best in terms of reaching the pedals and for enabling a wide range of movement while playing. However, this stool is not only designed to provide a stable base for this type of seated position but also with careful consideration to the balance between the surface area of the seat and the position of the legs, combined with excellent cushioning to provide the most comfortable and effective experience possible. This is truly a unique stool that effortlessly combines the functional qualities needed from a piano stool with the style and sophistication that you would expect from expertly crafted furniture.

Minimalist Design

We have adopted a minimalist design that utilizes Casio’s unique technology to help the piano blend naturally into the surroundings, with excellent freedom of usability no matter where you choose to play it! Thanks to our original high-density mounting technology, the internal circuit boards can be stacked vertically, which helps to create a compact body. The face of the piano is also kept sleek and minimalist by incorporating LED touch buttons on the console panel which enables easy adjusting of settings while reducing the number of switches and buttons. This maintains a clean, clutter-free aesthetic to increase the harmony with the surrounding interior.


High-Quality Sound in a Compact Body for Optimal Performance – Advanced Sound System

A Sound System with Outstanding Resolution and Localization for Even More Expressive Performance

The speaker diaphragm has been made as large as possible while fitting into the compact body to achieve a powerful sound. Mica, a reinforcing material used in many high-end audio products, is incorporated into the diaphragm of the PX-S7000 and PX-S6000 speakers to produce high frequencies with greater detail. In addition, the internal structure of the speakers allows for a wide range of voice coil movement for increased sound capacity, while producing richer and more resonant low frequency sounds. In short, every nuance the player expresses is faithfully reflected in the sound giving the player outstanding freedom in their musical performance.

With Even Greater Expressive Power, All the Performance Characteristics of a Grand Piano

With improved expression of the low and high frequency ranges, the resultant sound is well-balanced with an excellent sense of presence and localization, faithfully capturing the authentic feel and balanced sound of a grand piano.

Spatial Sound System

One of the key features of the PX-S7000/PX-S6000 models is that they come equipped with the Spatial Sound System. This is a newly developed proprietary technology with patent-pending, which flexibly adjusts the field of sound based on the position of the piano. So, what does this mean in terms of the performance? Well, they feature four full-range speakers and each driven by an 8W amplifier, contained in a highly solid resin and wood hybrid casing that helps to produce a clear yet powerful sound that minimizes distortion as a result of suppressing unwanted sympathetic vibrations. Side Enhancing Diffusers are equipped to the outer speakers which help to produce a wide-spreading sound despite the fact that the piano itself is compact. The sound output from each of four speakers in the Spatial Sound System is individually adjusted by various elements such as frequency, volume, and localization. By combining the sounds from these four speakers in the air, it has allowed us to create a natural field of sound that was not possible with previous conventional two channel stereo technology, greatly improving the audio experience for outstanding playing performance! They also have a surround function that allows you to adjust the spread of sound in three different stages.

Piano Position Function

By taking advantage of the Spatial Sound System, the acoustics can be adapted using the Piano Position function, which alters elements of the sound emitted from the four speakers based on where you are using the piano, giving you unprecedented freedom to use your piano where best suits your lifestyle! You can choose between four different built-in modes. The first is Standard which as the name suggests, is the default, most common setting and assumes you are playing on a stand. The next mode is called Wall for when playing up against a flat surface. When played against a wall, the range of the bass becomes weaker and reflected sounds from the surface of the wall can cause disturbances in the frequency. The spread of sound from left to right is also reduced as the sound tends to gather in the center, so the Wall setting compensates for this. This setting when combined with the four speakers, corrects the sound and optimizes your playing experience even when played next to a wall! The Center mode is designed for when playing in the middle of a room or a group of people. When placed in the middle of a room, reflected sound from the surroundings is reduced so it is harder to feel higher ranges as well as the left and right spread. This setting compensates for this by adjusting the sound, improving the experience even for someone listening from behind. The last mode is Table, which corrects the disturbance in sound frequency caused by reflecting off from the surface when placed on a table. By using these four different Piano Position modes you can experience an unrivaled degree of freedom that lets you use the piano anywhere in the room without ever compromising the sound quality!

Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source

Harmonically Rich and Vivid Sound the Distinctive Sound of a Grand Piano [Acoustic Simulator]

The harmonically rich sound of an acoustic grand piano is produced by a combination of the complex mechanism within the instrument's large body and the changes in overtone structure from the approximately 230 strings that resonate according to the player’s articulation, musical phrasing and use of the pedals. Casio's proprietary Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source produces the natural, full-bodied sound of a grand piano with incredible detail. The PX-S7000/PX-S6000 delivers a vivid, harmonically rich sound thanks to the dense overtones of each individual string for all 88 keys tuned for its unique speaker system String Resonance, which exposes the harmonic relationships between various strings when keys are struck. Also Damper Resonance reproduces the resonance occurring when a damper pedal is pressed and the other and all the strings are free to resonate. The PX-S7000 features Open String Resonance and Aliquot Resonance that resonates even when the damper is not depressed. Damper Noise (the sound of the damper leaving the strings) and Key Action Noise (the mechanical sound unique to grand pianos made when keys are pressed softly or when keys are released) are also audible. Touches like these are the secret to the grand piano experience.

Changes in Timbre Based on the Nuances of the Player [Multi-Dimensional Morphing Technology]

The timbre of a note played on an acoustic grand piano changes expressively depending on how the key is played and over time as the note continues to ring. Casio's unique Multi-Dimensional Morphing Technology produces smooth volume and timbre changes according to key velocity and time (temporal change), allowing players to express the full range of playing styles from gentle pianississimo to powerful fortississimo.

Sound Generation Technology that Maximizes the Expressive Power of an Acoustic Grand Piano [Lossless Audio Compression]

Most digital pianos use "lossy" compressed audio waveform data for their piano sounds. When a key is pressed, the appropriate waveform data is decompressed and played back. Because the compression is "lossy", however, the sound – like MP3 files – is inevitably degraded in comparison to the original. AiR Sound Source, on the other hand, uses lossless audio compression (reversible compression and decompression), which not only preserves the original sound but also allows for playback of many compressed waveform variations. The result is a beautifully expressive piano that can be played as you would an acoustic grand.
