Above everything else, a Digital Piano needs to feel as 'real' as possible if it's going to make people want to play it, so while the 88 note, natural weighted hammer action keybed on the Korg SP-170S is a real joy to play, it also feels very realistic indeed.
There are 10 onboard sounds ranging from two very realistic Grand Pianos through classic Electric Pianos and including Violins, Organs and Vibraphones, all of which sound killer through the built-in stereo speaker system, especially when you add some on-board reverb and chorus for added depth.
If you're an experienced Piano player, you'll appreciate the many years of heritage Korg bring to the party. The keyboard beds are the best, mimicking as they do the feel of a real piano, even down to the way the lower octaves have an increased resistance the further down you go, and if you're a beginner you'll be learning on a proper instrument, so that in time, an acoustic piano will feel familiar and comfortable.
When using the Korg SP-170s at home, the on-board stereo speaker system should provide plenty of volume, but if you need to connect to an amp or a PA, there are line outputs, and for those of you who wish to practice in silence, you can connect a pair of headphones.
The keyboard also includes a damper switch and a pitch controller.
