I don't own PX7 for now (I'm waiting for "birthday of RE" sale or the summer sale !) but I'm quiet happy that it is dedicated to one type of synthesis (that is FM). In order to make the synth panorama of Reason more complete, it would be nice to have an additive synth, for example a clone of K5000s. I read on the forum that an additive synth RE is on its way, so perhaps I don't have to wait for too long !
ElectraX sounds way different than Thor. Thor is capable of technically setting up similar patches, but they come out sounding a tad too digital. Electra X sounds very smooth and plus the sound design interface is far more concise.
