The CGP-700 is your ideal creative partner. It combines authentic piano sound and feel, an incredible six-speaker sound system, and an intuitive Color Touch Interface. It's a perfect instrument for any home, and when you're ready to gig, it becomes a lightweight, portable stage piano.
5.3" Color Touch Interface
Although the CGP-700 is loaded with impressive features, it's also incredibly easy to use. The centerpiece of the CGP-700 is a beautiful 5.3" Color Touch Interface. This high-resolution display is bright and clear, and makes full use of a huge color palette to keep you informed and in control. Navigating through tones and rhythms using touch and swipe gestures is a breeze. There's also a handy Grand Piano button, which lets you enjoy the CGP-700's brilliant grand piano sound instantly, and nearby Transpose buttons allow you to quickly shift to a different key.
6 Speaker Sound System
The CGP-700 has four speakers in the top panel, and two low-frequency speakers in its included stand, with a massive 40 watts of power. Whether you're enjoying the sonic experience of a 9-foot concert grand piano, playing along with the built-in rhythms, or listening to your MP3 player via the stereo aux input, this unique 3-way speaker system easily fills the room with rich, detailed sound.
At your fingertips is Casio's famous Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action II keyboard, accurately recreating the touch and response of a concert grand piano with 127 times the resolution of traditional keyboards. Suitable for the most demanding pianist, this keyboard also enables beginning players to develop proper playing technique. Just like a grand piano, the keys have a heavier feel in the lower register, and a lighter feel up top. Even the surface of the keys feels natural, with the reproduced textures of both ebony and ivory.
Having great keys means you need a truly great piano sound. The CGP-700's 9-foot concert grand piano sound is as impressive as it is thanks to a meticulous recording session with over two dozen microphones. The result is a dynamic and expressive concert grand piano that can be used in stereo or mono, and even includes damper resonance simulation. You'll find instant settings to adjust the piano for rock, jazz, classical, and other styles to suit your needs. The CGP-700 can also use the optional SP-33 pedal system, which provides soft, sostenuto, and damper pedals.
Sounds, Rhythms and More
The CGP-700 goes far beyond piano, with 550 different instrument tones. You'll find a variety of guitars, strings, basses, drums, synths, and more. There is also a powerful effects system with reverbs, delays, and other essential add-ons such as rotary speakers for organs and phasers for electric pianos. Quickly select one of the 200 ensemble Rhythms, which can accompany your playing with a full backing band which reacts to the chords that you play. You can also save combinations of your favorite tones, layers, splits, rhythms, accompaniment, and tempo for instant recall when performing.
Home, Stage, or Studio
The CGP-700 is a beautiful addition to any home, with its sleek design and matching wooden stand. When performing on the go, it can easily be removed from the stand. At only 26 lbs., the CGP-700 is one of the lightest-weight digital pianos available, and with its 1/4" outputs, you can easily connect to a mixer, amplifier, or PA system.
Keep Your Creations
When you are inspired, it's quick and easy to record your performance. The CGP-700 includes both MIDI and USB audio recorders. Transfer your recordings easily to a computer to share your music.
Student Friendly, Teacher Approved
The CGP-700 is ideal for any educational environment. Duet Mode splits the keyboard into two equal ranges, two people to play side by side on one instrument. An additional Classroom Mode splits the keyboard and configures the CGP-700 audio outputs to work with third party piano lab systems. The front panel also has two headphone jacks, perfect for a teacher and student.
Connectivity Without Confusion
The class-compliant USB port on the CGP-700 can connect to a PC, Mac, or other devices such as an iPad, with no special drivers needed. Just connect, and instantly control your favorite software.

I purchased this as a replacement for my ten year old Casio WK-8000. While I loved the organ tones on the 8000 the piano was never that impressive. I learned to play on an organ but recently I've been getting more serious about the piano so I decided to upgrade to something with a more convincing acoustic piano feel and tone. The CGP-700 delivers that, while offering hundreds of other sounds, a powerful built-in speaker system and a sturdy stand - all for under $800.
The touch screen and button layouts are logical and easy to master.
The built-in amp/speakers put out plenty of sound.
It's lightweight and compact in size.
The keys have a nice "ivory' feel to them.
There's no expression petal jack (but there's a line out which can feed an amp with a petal in-between).
The touch screen is not as responsive as an average smart phone screen so you often have to repeat the action for the desired result.
The organ tones are not as plentiful or as customize-able as some of the other Casio models (including my old WK-8000).
My last Casio is still working perfectly after ten years use. Hopefully this will do the same. If you're looking for a convincing digital piano at a reasonable price, but need a plethora of other sounds in the same instrument this might be your answer.
Lastly, I purchased mine from Austin Bazaar, who threw in a bunch more free stuff, making this an even better deal.
I love how many different sounds there are, and the built in midi recording is extremely useful. I haven't tried to transfer anything to my computer yet, though. The pedal is... well, not that great, but a new one is pretty cheap, so I'll get that when I get around to it. The sound without the speakers from the sound is tinny, but not terribly so. All in all, I like it!
