Casio Privia PX-160 88-Key Digital Piano

Gearank Recommended

The Privia PX-160 appeared on our recommended list for Digital Pianos Under $500 from February 2017 until April 2020.


The Casio Privia PX-160 has a nice balance of quality and value for money, going beyond what others have to offer in the same price range.

To match what the competition is offering in terms of playability, Casio equipped this unit with scale weighted keys that have switchable 3-tier touch sensitivity.

They then went a step further by upping the amplifier power to 16 Watts and speaker size to 5.12", which translates to more headroom to fill bigger rooms with.

Polyphony is also increased along with the addition of extra sounds to choose from.

Casio did not compromise with extra features either, adding a 2-track recorder into the unit, along with the ability to layer and split the keyboard.
