Default So which Cowon should I keep? (Decision Made!)

I'm in such a dilemma. I first purchased an X7 and was wowed by the SQ. I purchased it because I am thinking of ripping all my CDs to FLAC and would need the extra storage. It sure has its advantages, such as large capacity, very long battery life, and is nice and big for me to handle properly. The resistive screen is actually pretty good and is almost as smooth as a capacitive one. Plus, I just found out that scrolling through long lists is a snap by dragging on the far left side of the list of artists, etc. It is also quite slow compared to some other players

But...the Cowon J3 is gorgeous! That ARMOLED screen with the superb UI is very hard to resist. Also, IMO the now playing screen on the J3 slightly edges out the X7. It also appears to be snappier than even the iPod Touch.

However, I also have a pretty good capacitive player, the iPod Touch 4G, 64GB, and using EQu to customize the SQ. And to top it off, I also have a 160GB iPod Classic. I got the Classic awhile back to store all my music but so far I only have about 27GB.

So, if you were me, which player would you keep?

P.S. I cannot keep both because my wife is already at the boiling point, but that's another story.
Cowon X7 160GB - iRiver H320 - IPod Classic 160GB - iPod 5.5G 80GB - Sansa Clip Plus 4GB - Original Sansa Clip 2GB
