Default K2500X or PC1x

I'm now looking a controller for replacing my DX-7, no, it's not broken, but
it has only 61 keys. I was looking Kurzweil PC1x and searched best prices
over the net. Finally I got into Ebay and saw that with same money i would
spend to PC1x i could get a K2500X (used)! My question is:Is it worth of
buying a USED K2500X that comes with ribbon and more programmable
sounds, or a PC1x for only controlling my Triton rack?
Any experiments of used instruments, because im bit of suspicious about
those?.


BTW does DX-7 come with pitch-wheel spring, because in my DX, pitch-
wheel dont revert?

This is just a hunch, but from reading all these posts on keyboards on this site after many months...if you're JUST using the keyboard to control your rack and you have no interest in programming sounds --> PC1X

If you want to control the rack but later on program your own sounds...then the 2500X, because the PC1X is just a big controller, as far as I know and understand, you can't make your own sounds with it.

That's the problem, now i dont need to program my own sounds, but
the ribbon... and KB3 mode... It's other controllers.. are what i've been
looking for. [Why this must be so hard..]
