Capture the soul of a grand piano with the Casio AP-620 Celviano digital piano, which features an Ivory Touch velocity-sensitive keyboard for unbelievable realism.

Let's face it: Given the choice, most pianists would choose to play an acoustic grand piano any day of the week. But until that acoustic grand falls into your lap (along with a soundproof studio for those late nights spent rehearsing), a digital piano is the next best thing. Thankfully, with the Casio AP-620 Celviano digital piano, there's no need to compromise sound quality -- or the natural feel of a piano -- just because you've decided to go digital. And for those times when you need more than simply a fantastic piano sound and feel, the AP-620 doesn't disappoint. With an astonishing 250 built-in tones, 180 rhythms, and a 17-track, 5-song sequencer, you'll want to keep playing for days.

Look and Feel

The first thing you'll notice about the AP-620 is its stunning synthetic ivory keys, designed to emulate the look and feel of the real thing. Casio's tri-sensor springless hammer-action scaled keyboard responds like the real instrument would, while the "Ivory Touch" material recreates the rewarding tactile surface of real satin, matte-finish ivory keytops. Just close your eyes, and you're playing the baby grand in your grandma's den. But there's no need to close your eyes when you're playing this Celviano -- it's a furniture-quality piece even Grandma would appreciate. Add the included sturdy, height-adjustable bench, and your living room never looked -- or sounded -- so good.

Uncompromising Piano Sound

If you're in the market for a top-quality digital piano, it's read more no question that a top-quality piano sound is of paramount importance. If you haven't heard what Casio's Linear Morphing AiF Sound Source can do, you're in for a treat. The AP-620's four-layer stereo samples respond to a pianist's nuanced touch, while two powerful downward-facing 30-watt speakers deliver rich, expressive, room-filling sound - or simply plug in headphones to practice in silence. Two headphone jacks make it easy to duet with a partner. You can even split the full 88-note keyboard into two parallel, individually-transposable sections, in Duet Mode. Playing solo? Layer or split the AP-620's keyboard into any combination of the 250 onboard "ensemble" tones. This digital piano can reproduce just about every instrument you can think of, from organs and strings to world percussion.

No Ordinary Piano

For the technology-minded musician, the AP-620 is no lightweight when it comes to connectivity. With USB, standard MIDI, and 1/4" outputs, you can plug into just about any computer, audio interface, or mixer. Slip in an SD card to expand the song memory limitlessly. The onboard registration memory can instantly recall your splits, layers and rhythms, so you spend your time playing music, not mashing buttons. After all, this top-of-the-line digital piano is, first and foremost, a piano.
