I was going to create a poll, but the option to make it public (well, any option) is no longer there. And I am not saying that someone that has heard both can't vote for the UM3X (but my ears tell me that wouldn't happen), I am just wondering who that was. And yes, search's opinion is very valid and just about all his opinions mirror mine, which is why I wasn't going to open the DDM. I did, and my thoughts so far mirror his, but I want to burn them in and need to spend a good amount of time with tips before I make any comments myself.
SM3 is superior for many reasons IMO, even though I have not heard the UM3X in quite a while. I do specifically remember what I heard, which was a very in the head presentation, and that didn't sound natural and realistic to me. Not saying the actual music didn't sound natural/realistic, but the presentation wasn't natural/realistic sounding to me.

Care to explain what you mean a little more, as I am not sure I get your point?
