My 2 cents.  Actually, the SDR-1000 competes with the K2,  OMNI-VI, 
and similar radios in its price class.  It is about equal in 
performance, some things a little better, some not as good.  I have a 
K2/100 and an OMNI-VI as well as a SDR-1000 and I have compared them 
A to B.  The SDR-X is being designed  to compete with the top of the 
line models like the Orion, IC7800 etc, and will be priced 
accordingly.  The SDR-1000 hardware imposes some limitations like 
full QSK that all the software in the world will not fix.  No so for 
the SDR-X.  The SDR-X probably will be have startup software not too 
far removed from the SDR-1000, but will go up from there.
