Flowerssupply,Comparing the ix300 to the X1 is not fair,[like a cavaleir to a cadilac]..There are 199 user styles..tye styles are the best in the industry,the keyboard has all the tools...high quality sounds,crisp and clear, drum patterns are the best. The x1 has a full blown editable synth engine,a sampler and a great storage and access media [hard drive model].It has an accordion mode and a dedicated draw bar organ mode with leslie simulator. It also has a powerfull 16 track sequencer and SMF playback with lyric read out. Mic input handles 2 mics with thier own on board effects and individual levels. You also have a great speaker system and inputs, as well as seperate outs...Like I said ,you can't compare, not even to the korg big brother the i30.....Regards fran....yea,yea,yea. I know I also sell them..
