line out socket and a 12 Volts dc socket. All of these are
located at the back of the keyboard.

My experience of the Casio CPS-700 Digital PianoIt is a beautiful looking instrument. Before I got this keyboard, I was thinking about buying a keyboard at some point and then I never bothered because I didn't think I would use it often enough to justify the cost of one.
However, a work colleage at the time (2001) told me his sister had a keyboard and wasn't using it. He asked if I was interested in having it. I said yes. He gave me it for free. What a blessing that was.I can say that the instrument has been a great introduction to piano playing. However because of the lightness of the keys, it is challenging to go from that, to a grand piano with weighted keys for my piano lessons.
Here are my descriptions of the sounds as I find them:1) Piano - This sounds very much like a piano (that maybe
sounds like a strange thing to say, but I really like it). I do
most of my piano practise using this sound. It is excellent and
very realisitic. The only thing I would say however, is that
when you leave your finger on the keyboard til the note is
finished, you can hear the digital sound or electric sound
coming through, but it is still good having said that.
2) Harpsichord - This is a lovely sound. It sounds very much like
a stringed instrument, as a harpsichord is. It sounds like
something Bach would have used.
This is a sound that I use rarely, except when I am having fun.
4) Electric Piano - This again is a very good sound. The thing I
like about this is the lower part of the keyboard really sounds
like a good bass section. This could be used to substitute a
you would hear in a cathedral. It sounds gorgeous. Great for
I have used the lineout socket on this keyboard a few times. The sound that comes from sound equipment that it connects to is brilliant in my view!There is also a headphone socket 6mm (if I measured accurately). Well it it the bigger size of the two options, so you'll know what I am talking about. This is great for practising with when you don't want to disturb the neighbours late at night.
I would heartily recommend this keyboard to anyone who is either desiring to play for fun or who wants to play seriously. I passed my Grade 1 piano exam by using this as a practice keyboard.The keyboard is still going strong, five years after I acquired it.
