Power Outlet
Your digital piano runs on standard household power.
Be sure to turn off power whenever you are not using
the digital piano.
Use only the AC adaptor that is specified for use with
this digital piano.
Specified AC Adaptor: AD-12
Back
Note the following important precautions to avoid
damage to the power cord.
During Use
• Never pull on the cord with excessive force.
• Never repeatedly pull on the cord.
• Never twist the cord at the base of the plug or
connector.
• The power cord should not be stretched tight while
it is in use.
During Movement
• Before moving the digital piano, be sure to unplug
the AC adaptor from the power outlet.
During Storage
• Loop and bundle the power cord, but never wind it
around the AC adaptor.
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure the digital piano is turned off before plugging
in or unplugging the AC adaptor.
• The AC adaptor will become warm to the touch after very
long use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.

Connections
IMPORTANT!
• Whenever connecting something to the digital piano, first
use the VOLUME controller to set the volume to a low
level. After connecting, you can adjust the volume to the
level you want.
Left Side
Connect commercially available headphones to the
PHONES jack. Connecting headphones to the
PHONES jack cuts off output to the speakers, which
means you can practice even late at night without
bothering others. To protect your hearing, make sure
that you do not set the volume level too high when
using headphones.
NOTE
• Be sure to push the headphones plug into the PHONES
jack as far as it will go. If you don’t, you may hear sound
from only one side of the headphones.
You can connect audio equipment or a music amplifier
to the digital piano and then play through external
speakers for more powerful volume and better sound
quality.
Connecting Audio Equipment (Figure 1)
Use commercially available connecting cords (mini
Plug × 1, Pin Plugs × 2) to connect as shown in Figure
1. Make sure that the end of the cord that you connect
to the digital piano is a stereo mini plug. A monaural
mini plug will result in output of only one of the two
stereo channels. Normally, you should set the input
selector of the audio equipment to the terminal where
the digital piano is connected (AUX IN, etc.) Adjust
volume using the digital piano’s VOLUME controller.
Connecting a Music Amplifier (Figure 2)
Connect the connecting cord* to one of the types of
amplifiers shown in Figure 2.
Adjust volume using the digital piano’s VOLUME
controller.
* Digital Piano: Stereo mini plug
Amplifier: Inputs signals for the left and right
channels. Not connecting either plug will
result in output of only one of the two
stereo channels.

DAMPER PEDAL jack
Connecting the supplied pedal (SP-3) to the DAMPER
PEDAL jack makes it possible to use the pedal as a
damper pedal.
Pressing the damper pedal while playing will cause the
notes you play to reverberate for a very long time.
• When a GRAND PIANO tone (MODERN, CLASSIC,
VARIATION) is selected as the tone, pressing this
pedal will cause notes to reverberate just like the
damper pedal on an acoustic grand piano.
Back
Pedal Connector
You can connect the optionally available 3-Pedal Unit
(SP-30) to the pedal connector on the bottom of the
digital piano. You can then use the pedals for
expression that is similar to that available on an
acoustic piano.
Bottom
SP-30 Pedal Functions
z Damper Pedal
In addition to the damper pedal functions described
in the column to the left, the SP-30 pedal also
supports half-pedal operation, so pressing the pedal
part way applies only a partial damper effect.
z Soft Pedal
Pressing this pedal suppresses notes played on the
keyboard after the pedal was pressed, and makes
them sound softer.
z Sostenuto Pedal
Only the notes that are played while this pedal are
depressed are sustained until the pedal is released.
NOTE
• The optional CS-65P or CS-66P stand is required in order
to use the SP-30 Pedal Unit.
Use only accessories that are specified for use with this
digital piano.
Use of unauthorized accessories creates the risk of fire,
electric shock, and personal injury.

Playing with Different Tones
This digital piano has 11 built-in tones.
* You can select these tones using keyboard keys. The
name of the tones assigned to each keyboard key is
marked above the keys. For details about selecting
these tones, see “Selecting a Tone Using the
Keyboard Keys” on page E-8.
1. Press the POWER button to turn on the
digital piano.
IMPORTANT!
• When you turn on the piano, it performs a power up
operation in order to initialize its system. During system
initialization, the LR button lamps flash for about six
seconds to let you know that system initialization is in
progress.
2. Select the tone you want.
• Press one of the GRAND PIANO buttons to select
either a modern sound (MODERN) or a classic sound
(CLASSIC).
• A lamp will light above the currently selected button.
• See “Selecting a Tone Using the Keyboard Keys” on
page E-8 for information about selected other tones.
3. Use the VOLUME controller to adjust the
volume level.
4. Try playing something on the digital piano.
NOTE
• Grand Piano Tones (MODERN, CLASSIC)
Your digital piano has a total of 11 built-in tones. The
MODERN and CLASSIC tones are stereo sampled tones
that can be selected using the GRAND PIANO buttons.
Try using the GRAND PIANO tones to familiarize
yourself with their distinctive sounds and characteristics.

Tone Name Characteristics
MODERN
This tone provides a bright and hard
grand piano sound. The volume and
timbre of this tone is quick to
respond to different keyboard
pressures, and it has relatively strong
reverb. This tone is a good choice for
dynamic and lively performances.
CLASSIC
This is a natural piano tone that
closely resembles the sound of an
acoustic grand piano. Though reverb
and other effects are kept to a
minimum, doing so enhances the
impact of operating the piano pedals
(acoustic resonance), for musically
delicate expressions. This tone is a
good choice for lesson and practice
sessions.

Fingered Chord Notes
• Except for the chords whose names have *1 after
them in the above examples, you also can use
inverted fingerings. This means that fingering either
E-G-C or G-C-E will produces a C chord.
• Except for the chords whose names have *2 after
them in the above examples, you need to press all of
the indicated keys in order to finger a chord. Failure
to include even a single note may produce a chord
that is different from the one you want.
„ FULL RANGE CHORD
The FULL RANGE CHORD mode lets you play a total
of 38 different types of chords (the same chords
available in the FINGERED mode plus 23 more). FULL
RANGE CHORD recognizes the pressing of three or
more keyboard keys anywhere on the keyboard as a
chord fingering. Anything else (pressing one or two
keys, or playing any group of notes that does not form
a chord fingering that is recognized by the keyboard) is
treated as melody notes.

volume sounds
slightly different
depending where it is
played on the
keyboard.
This is an unavoidable result of the digital sampling process,* and does not indicate malfunction.
* Multiple digital samples are taken for the low range, middle range, and high range of the original
musical instrument. Because of this, there may be a very slight difference in tonal quality and
volume between sample ranges.
When I press a
button, the note that
is sounding cuts out
momentarily or there
is a slight change in
how effects are
applied.
This happens when the sounds of multiple parts are sounding at the same time while using layer,
using the Duet Mode, playing back a built-in tune, recording, etc. Pressing a button when one of these
conditions exists will cause the effect setting that is built into the tone to change automatically, which
causes the notes to cut out momentarily or causes a slight change in how effects are being applied.
