The PX-S1100 replaces the PX-S1000, which has become one of the best-selling digital pianos on the market today and has earned its reputation for sound and features well above its price category.

COMPACT SIZE AND MINIMALIST, ELEGANT DESIGN
The new PX-S1100 makes the most of Casio’s cutting-edge technology with a sophisticated design and the world’s thinnest depth.1 The sleek, contemporary design complements the interior of any home and makes the most of rooms with limited space. With gold accents and three color variations – black, white and red – the PX-S1100 has a minimalist, sleek and clean appearance, with a flat, mirror-like control panel. All settings are managed by touch buttons which disappear when the piano is turned off. In addition, the PX-S1100 has the simplest interface of the Privia family.
AUTHENTIC PIANO SOUND AND FEELING
Despite its slim profile, the feel of the PX-S1100 replicates a grand piano with weighted action that is subtly heavier in the lower range and becomes lighter as the player steps up on the keyboard. Enhanced string resonance reproduces the complex harmonics of an acoustic piano. Improved speakers and speaker placement give the PX-S1100 a warmer sound than ever before, and the multi-dimensional morphing AiR sound source delivers a sense of ambience, location and clarity. This advanced sound engine mirrors changes in volume and timbre, allowing users to transition from smooth, delicate playing to dynamic, powerful performances, all with ultimate musical expressiveness.
CONNECTIVITY, WIRED OR WIRELESS
The connected features of the PX-S1100 stand out from the competition, as the included WU-BT10 adapter adds BluetoothÂ® MIDI and audio capabilities, allowing users to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth compatibleÂ® devices and turn the piano itself into BluetoothÂ® speaker. This revolutionary upgrade provides opportunities for self-learning and music production, as users can play along to their favorite songs and hear it all through the Privia’s high-fidelity speakers. In addition, the dedicated Chordana Play for Piano app opens up a whole world of control and education functions, allowing players to control all piano functions from a tablet (connected via BluetoothÂ® or USB cable) and providing real-time interactive lessons that make learning music more engaging.
âWhen Casio released their first Privia model almost 20 years ago, our goal was to make the pleasure of playing the piano accessible to more people,â said Stephane Schmidt, Vice President of Electronic Musical Instruments at Casio. “The PX-S1100 delivers on this promise, delivering the sound and feel of a concert grand piano with unprecedented value and quality.”
