"Pro Digital Keyboard Line of the year was a hotly contested category this year. Casio snuck by the competition, though, taking home the 2017 MMR Dealers' Choice Award trophy as dealers pointed to the company's commitment to innovation and value as the main reasons," said Christian Wissmuller, Executive Editor, MMR. "If you still think of those fun little keyboards from the '80s when someone says 'Casio,' it's time to update your reality. These days the company is producing some of the finest, feature-rich keyboard consoles out there and both consumers and MI retailers have been taking notice for years."
Casio's Privia and CELVIANO lines are the hallmarks of its digital piano offerings. The popular Privia line includes modern home pianos and professional stage instruments, while Casio's CELVIANO line of digital pianos – in particular, its series of Grand Hybrid Pianos combine the advantages of both digital and acoustic pianos while delivering the performance of a grand piano in tone, keyboard quality and playing response.

To be honored by our dealers means that we are delivering on our commitment to develop products that meet the needs of today's musicians," said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio's Electronic Musical Instrument Division. "We want to thank everyone who chose Casio for this honor, and rest assured that we will continue to raise the bar for digital piano technology and create instruments that musicians of any experience level will love."
