Hah, sensationalist thread title like Engadget/Gizmodo... X5 killer my ass. ;)

Abysmal sounding SRS garbage instead of BBE, no FLAC, SVI instead of AVI, etc, etc. Then again, it does have the connectors built in, so that's one a major advantage over the X5's terrible sub-dock.

Yes, without a sensationalist thread title people don't read :D

I agree for sound effects. BBE sound better than SRS WOW.
But I don't really like sound effects. I prefer user EQ.
And the YH-J70 offers a 9 band-user EQ! It really sounds great! :eek:

Regarding supported video files, we really don't care, those players are Audio players!
The video feature on the X5 is as much useless as on the YH-J70 ;)

So why the X5 was a commercial success and not the YH-J70?
Because previous Samsung models were really bad (YH-820, 920 and 925), this was not the case for Cowon. Besides, the X5 supports FLAC, was available in 60Gb version, "L" versions provide a great battery life. And Rockbox has been ported.

But both of them are very great DAP! Unfortunately the YH-J70 is not as famous as it should be!
