Default Zen X-fi vs Zen X-fi Stle --> WHICH ONE IS BETTER?

Hi,
Im from AUS and is looking to get a new creative mp3 for sound quality

Right now, the 16 GB Zen X-fi STYLE is very similar priced to the older Zen X-fi model ( older one is sttill slightly more expensive)

I need to know which one is better overall in terms of sound quality or are they the same? and it functions? why is the older version still slightly more expensive I really care about the sound quality thats why im not getting an ipod

and does it have an automatic shut down timer when i go to sleep (eg. 60mins later of listening) ??

I need to purchase one very soon.. please answer me... i been spending around 7hours + goggling trying to find a comparison between the two model before i buy it.. but cannot find it so i decide to finally post!

ultimately, is the new ZEN X-fi style an inferior product compared to the older therefore i should spent a bit more for the older model instead??

plus the white new zen style x-fi looks cute!

EDIT: Sorryy for the wrong tittle spelling, its meant to be STYLE!

Thanks
Jen

You can edit your thread title yourself. Can't help with creative, had my fill and not a fan of their players ...

As I understand the Xfi style is a tactile version of the Xfi 2. The biggest differince betwen the Style and the Xfi is the Style doesn't have LAN, however the Crystallizer and Expand are adjustable whereas the Xfi is only On and Off for those functions. I dont have the Style but when my Zen dies it will probably be my next player. Cnet Asia gave the Style a fairly decent rating and thought the sound quality was excellent. Let us know how you like it if you get it.

thanks bikertrash and walkgood. The new Zen x-fi style does seem more cheaper with the plastic covering compared to the original Zen X-fi. Just wanna make sure that the sound quality is the same between the two as i heard that the Zen X-fi has exceptional sounds qaulity. The cnet review on the Style only say it has 'good sounds' lol.

Also hopefully the style a set auto shut off when i go to sleep and have a "sound normalizer" as some of my songs have different sound level.

Also how do you edit the title? I cant seem to find the option, only know how to edit the message box!

thanks

Those functions you're asking about are typical for Creative and are probably on the Style. If you get it from a reputable retailer you should be able to return it if it doesn't have that stuff, but I'm pretty sure all that will be on the style.
Make sure to let us know what you think of it when you get it I've been tempted to get one but the Zen still sounds great and so I'm holding back until it dies.
