asio’s Privia line of digital pianos has been around for a long time. Their Tri Sensor Hammer Action II has been a proven key action that is popular and feels realistic.
The only true complaint people have against concerns bounciness and inherent noisiness (which, to be fair, is barely noticeable during play). Overall, I’ve been happy with the Privia pianos I’ve played through the years.
With the PX-S1000, Casio opted to use a different key action, one that is designed to fit the slimmer chassis. Casio calls this the Smart Scaled Hammer Action.
To be clear, these are no longer triple sensor actions; they are two-sensor actions instead.
Triple sensor actions have been Casio’s mainstay for years. When you press each key, it passes through each of the three sensors, eventually passing the lowermost sensor as you hit the bottom of the key bed.
Once you slowly release the keys, you can retrigger the sound by passing the middle sensor. As such, triple sensor actions offer more accuracy.
Casio opted to go with a new, smart, 2-sensor hammer action due to its better performance showed during thorough tests.
A two-sensor action might seem like a downgrade, but it’s not entirely true.
Casio’s action isn’t called “Smart” for nothing. Between both sensors, a software-based solution determines how deep your keypresses will be.
During play, I found that this two-sensor action is as good, if not better than the three-sensor actions available on previous Privia keyboards.
Judging by fellow reviewer’s thoughts after playing the PX-S1000 at the NAMM show, it seems like the PX-S1000 has enjoyed an unanimously positive reception.
The keys themselves are plastic and simulate ivory and ebony, giving them a textured feel ideal for play.
There’s a subtle grip on each keypress, and that’s something you don’t really expect on affordable keyboards in the PX-S1000’s price bracket.
A primary improvement of this new action is a silent mechanism that makes it one of the quietest key actions in its category.
There are also a few other minor improvements, including reduced bounciness and a slightly redesigned texture on the keys.
Apart from that, the new action felt quite similar to the previous Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action II regarding mechanical movement and physics.
I also noticed a negative about the new action compared to the older one.
To fit the key action into this compact chassis, Casio reduced the size of the action itself (the part that hides below the fallboard), making the pivot length shorter.
This means it’s slightly harder to play and control the keys at the back. This specifically occurs when you have to stretch your fingers to play between the black keys, which was a bit disappointing.
I’d rather sacrifice an inch or two of depth of the chassis in the name of a longer (better) key action.
Even so, we always have to make some compromises. If you need portability, the PX-S1000 is one of the best options you can find on the market right now.
With regards to touch sensitivity, there are 5 different levels and an OFF option, ranging from light to heavy. At heavier settings, you need to play with a bit more force to trigger louder sounds.
Comparing the PX-S1000’s action to its competitors, it feels somewhat inferior to Roland’s PHA-4 Standard, Korg’s RH3, and Kawai’s RHCII actions as far as responsiveness and control are concerned. It’s also easier to play into keys with these actions.
The action beats, however, Yamaha’s GHS keyboard action, which, in my opinion, feels a bit basic and plasticky compared to Casio’s action. The pivot point length is about the same for both.
Casio went all in to make the PX-S series new. They even swapped out the sounds from the previous Privia digital pianos for new updated sample sets.
I was pleasantly surprised by the new sounds, and comparing them to the previous Privia instruments shows definite improvement (partly thanks to new and improved Reverb algorithms and Space simulation).
