The Bitter truth is we always look for better things than the actual. Nothing can truly satisfy us. We are not okay with ordinary things.

Always we expect more. Like more money than our salary, more discount than the actual sale price, more examination time than the given, and so on. You get my point, right? Nothing can be changed when it comes to Korg’s series of digital pianos.

They had varieties of low cost digital pianos; still they are looking for a way to reduce the cost of their product from the actual price. They never give rest from improving their product quality but yet never raising the price, even a slight. Mostly their product’s model are lookalike with unique features of each. 

Are you looking for a digital piano with a classic look with a great modernist sound system? Then give a serious consideration over Korg SP-170.

In this article we are going to check out the Korg’s generosity and the reasons behind their famous products. 

Must to Know

Features of Korg SP-170

The instrument has another tone which includes electric piano, harpsichord, and strings. Which are added for demo songs. 

Feedback about its feature and spec

If you ever had a chance to play the 170, now they have just added a few buttons. Which will not be a spoiler but some might feel the pang on their stomach like the one we get when we see our favorite actor’s new movie review goes negatively.

It might be because some are struggling with this button function. To be frank, it doesn’t alter Korg’s button-less feature.  SP-170 doesn’t alter its functionality but the addition of buttons made the customization simple. Those keys are the power button, volume knob, and new piano play and sound buttons.

Thinking about the power system it has direct current 12V power consumption 9W. You might doubt its durability after hearing its price , but we are very sorry for your wrong assumption. Actually it has a great number of durability.
