Casio's Privia Pro PX-5S is a genuine stage piano, controller and workstation packed with functions that set it apart from standard models.

At Winter NAMM 2014, The Music & Sound Retailer announced that Casio had been declared an award winner. For this award process, dealers and manufacturers vote for one another based on their respective categories. Casio's PX-5S received a great number of endorsements from dealers nationwide.
"Music & Sound Awards are so highly coveted by--and so meaningful to--manufacturers because it's the dealers themselves who determine the winners," said Dan Ferrisi, editor of The Music & Sound Retailer. "This Music & Sound Award win underscores the impact that the Privia Pro PX-5S stage piano made among brick-and-mortar music products retailers last year. The Retailer congratulates Casio on this prestigious honor!"
