About this deal
So, the big question is, is it worth saving a relatively small amount of money and missing out on what the FP-30 offers over the FP-10? This affordable digital piano is always ready to play, with a reassuringly authentic feel from the 88-note PHA-4 Standard keyboard, joined by Roland’s evocative SuperNATURAL piano tones through onboard speakers or headphones. The included footswitch pedal is pretty basic and doesn’t look or feel like an acoustic piano pedal. More advanced functionalities are available on the "Piano Partner 2" app, which is both iOS and Android compatible. I’d still prefer the PX-S1000 as I would gladly play and track my Kontakt and Pianoteq grands from it.
Please note: Although the sustain socket is advertised as being continuous, this keyboard will not output continuous midi signal if you connect an expression pedal into the sustain socket. You did a very good and details review of the feature and above all you even compare the Fp-10 to alternate version from others vendors which is great.If you've decided you want to upgrade to the new Roland FP10 and you own a piano or keyboard, our part exchange offer can make this faster and easier for you.

The action question here really comes down to this; if you’re already a fairly advanced player or intend to become one, the PHA4 is going to be a much more suitable choice as it behaves much more like a real acoustic piano action. The FP-10 allows you to adjust the Ambience and Brilliance of the sounds within the 0-10 range, which makes it fairly easy to fine tune the sound to your needs. When it comes to the core piano sound, as we often say at Merriam Pianos, it’s going to come down to a matter of personal preference. Compared to the P-45 and FP-10, the Casio also has slightly more powerful speakers and can be used with an optional 3-pedal unit.
The graded hammer action is both sensitive and responsive, allowing fast repetitions and delicate phrasing. As the feel and sound (through headphones) of the FP-10 and FP-30 are identical, if your piano is going to stay put in a small-to-medium sized room, the FP-10 may well be plenty of piano for you.
I forgot that indeed the FP-10 comes with a 1/8″ headphone jack as opposed to 1/4″, so yeah no adapter is needed to use headphones with a 1/8″ plug. The mechanical key action sound is actually a bit quieter on this action compared to the PHA4, and this is probably due to an increased level of key cushioning. For that reason, the PX-160 is often compared to more expensive keyboards such as the Roland FP-30 and Yamaha P-125.

The speaker entry in the comparison chart should read 12x12 cm for the Roland and 16x8 cm (oval) for the PX-S. There is definitely a little bit more clarity and detail coming out of the S1100, but in terms of the overall depth of sound, the FP-10 more than holds its own.
