I have played this new PX760 quite a bit and the sound upgrades not only include realistic piano sounds with a large dynamic tonal range and 3 electronic senors per key, but also pro quality sounding instruments such as improved strings, electric pianos, and as always, a very nice "ivory & ebony feel" key action which is superior in weight and response to any Yamaha digital piano I have played in this price range. With regard to new features, Casio has included a new music library that consists of 10 orchestra classical songs which you can play along with using the piano sounds. The 10 songs are in an audio wav format (recorded from live orchestra) and sounds just like a real recording of the instruments as you would have in a regular CD. The new songs are independent in their sounds and format (the piano itself does not have these sounds) but you can interact with them by playing along. The 10 songs are standard classical music and although they are fun to play along with, you would need to be able to read music (or play by ear) and play along at the song notation skill level so that you could interact with the music properly. You can slow down the songs, mute either right or left hand playback sound for live playalong (both features are pretty cool) and do a few other things with the orchestra accompaniment which are all fun to do and helpful for learning. There are also other ways to interact with recorded music such as with iPad apps, etc, and that include larger music libraries that offer a good variety of music in multiple music categories. In the Casio music library there are 10 songs with all of them being in the classical category although there are more songs which can be had from an additional song library on-line at a Casio site.

*One final note of interest...It is good to also know that Casio produces an upgraded digital piano above the PX760 and priced under $1000 that I recommend above the PX760 and that model is called the PX780 ($899US internet discount price). In my opinion it's definitely worth more than its $200 difference in having a bigger, bolder piano sound along with an array of additional and useful educational fun features for children and adults. If you have the extra money, the Casio PX780 will be worth your consideration. Go to the following link to read my review on the PX780:Casio PX780 Review
