Xiosynth Vs. K-station

I currently own a K-station and really really love it, but I have been looking at controllers lately and wondering if it would help me at all to buy a xiosynth even though I would keep my K-station, or would it be better to just buy an axiom or something.

Since you really into this synth, may be it would be nice to have one of those portable synths at the studio and one in the living room or at the back of your car :)

the xiosynth is battery powered, and i don't believe the k-station is

there's one advantage :D

I think the K-Station sounds better than the Xiosynth...and obviously the K-Station's parameter knobs are made exactly for each parameter while the Xio's is made various purposes.

Might be a matter of taste, I prefere the Xiosynth, since it seems to provide more presence high frequency wise, but never had a chance for an A/B comparison...
Xiosynth provides a superset of the K-Station Parameters, with more Oscillator/LFO-Waveforms (but the Oscillator missing double waveforms), Filtertypes (the ones of the KS Rack) and a trance gate...

I have a question about this too-

I'm assuming the Xiosynth is the X-station right?

So how similar is it's voice architecture to the K station?

No, they seem to have slight differences, I compared the specs before I bought the Xio. The X-Station can do the double waveforms, but missing the trancegate...
