The 160 and the KU5A don't sound anything alike so it really is hard to make that comparison. That being said, you'll get a beefier low end and low-mid out of the AEA for overheads and I'd also say that you'll get better reach with the AEA as well. 160 will give a bit more highend punch and crunch whereas the AEA is a bit smoother on top.
