Overview of Casio PX-750
Casio PX750 is noted for the realism of its grand piano sounds, which Casio boasts as an improvement over lower-end and earlier models. The PX-750 offers 18 different tones, recording in 2 tracks, MIDI out via USB, and 8 watt speakers on each side.
Casio PX750, with an 88-note scaled hammer action has the ability to split the keyboard into two tones as well as to layer multiple sounds, such as piano and violin, when pressing one key. It also features a key cover that slides down over the keys when the piano is not in use.
This model uses a powerful sound engine and more memory than its predecessors, which allows it to feature more realistic tones than previous models. Casio uses its proprietary AiR sound source system to offer rich, realistic tones. Casio’s Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator as a sound source provides an acoustic realism that cannot be denied. This keyboard also includes a recording function with playback available for the purpose of learning, practicing and performing.
The key action of a digital piano is always an important thing to consider. Like many other digital pianos in its class, the PX-750 has hammer action keys, which imitate the feel of playing a grand piano, where a hammer literally strikes the piano’s strings. Additionally, the keys have been made to feel like traditional ivory and ebony, and the Casio PX750 uses three sensors to match the speed and velocity of playing on a piano that is a real grand one.
Many user reviews of this digital piano mention that it’s a great value. Users felt that the sounds offered by the Casio PX750 are as realistic as one could expect from a digital piano at this price point, and some users even felt that the sounds were even more realistic than they expected.
Players liked the weight and feel of the keys and felt that they also met their expectations or were above them for a digital piano at this price. Overall, those who bought or tried this piano rated its sound and feel as its best features and the reason they bought or would buy one.
The main criticisms users had of this piano were about the housing and construction, citing that the keys sometimes made a bit of noise or that the piano began to show signs of wear after awhile such as the corners chipping. A number of users felt that they made a trade-off in the construction for the high-quality sound and feel, and that, for the price, it was a worthwhile trade-off.
Some other users disliked that the piano didn’t allow multi-track recording using more than two tracks or that it didn’t have a line out other than via the headphone output, but these kinds of criticisms were frequently specific to the user’s individual need.

Overall, Casio’s PX-750 is an above average buy, especially for musicians who want the feel of a grand piano but don’t have the space or the money for one. If you want to spend less and still get realistic sounds from your digital piano, this is also an excellent choice.
Musicians who want the versatility of multi-track recording might want to consider a workstation keyboard instead, however, and people looking for a piano with a more durable exterior may want to consider a more expensive model.
