Casio Privia PX-410R - Any Good?


My old Technics SX-P30 has thrown two keys (G1, E6) and will probably cost more to repair than it would cost to just buy another one, so I'm in the market for a new hammer-action 88key piano.

I was thinking about the Casio PX-410 because I need something with decent a drawbar organ sample, and hopefully decent electromechanical (rhodes, whurly, clav) samples. A good piano sample is helpful, too

Does anybody have one of these pianos and can comment on their sound pallete?

I really don't like the way the keyboard "looks" and the fact that it has onboard speakers and auto-accompianment scares me, but I guess in the end it's about the sound.

FWIW I'm at best an amateur pianist, so I'm looking for a good all-rounder rather than emulation of a real grand.

I know the brand name is frightening, but I really like the action and sound of the Privia keyboards. I have had the original PX-100, or whatever it is called, for about 4 years and it has served me well. The newer ones are even better.

I have a Casio PX-310. Good action. Good piano, Rhodes, Clav and Wurly sounds.

I, too, thought "I don't need no stinking built in speakers". After owning it a few days I wanted to check out something in an arrangement. I quickly pulled it out of the case, sat it on a chair, and went to grab a little amp when I realized..."Oh...built in speakers". Suddenly it appeared to be a great design idea.
