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

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!

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!
