All of the synth sounds are completely brand new, as ZEN-Core, which only feature in these new Fantoms. In addition, the new DSP and audio conversion is much higher in quality, so the quality of the playback is exceptionally clear. So even if you play an older sound, it will not sound the same as previous models as they do not have the audio conversion clarity that the Fantoms have.”

So I guess the sound engine in the Fantom is not the same as the sound engine in the Jupiter X, Xm, MC-707 or 101, and Zen-CORE is only found in the Fantom line.

If this has already been established in this thread, I apologize, carry on.
According to the specs on roland.com the 707,101- Jupiter-X/Xm all use ZEN-Core.
