Add to that, the DX7s had a four cell Nih battery, along with a charger. If my fading memory is correct, the DX6i transmitter uses alkaline batteries.

What is so much better about the DX7s, is the extra channel worth the $100 more, or is there a lot of other things, like mixing ability, control accuracy?
