And sometimes not, "better" is pretty subjective term.

I would say that replenished systems definitely impart somewhat "different" characteristics and that they are well worth exploring.

I very much enjoyed learning and working with my replenished Xtol and got negatives that were really nice and it was really economical.

I now very much enjoy my DD-X and the convenience it provides and I get negatives that are every bit as nice IMO.

Sure, DD-X costs me a bit extra compared to replenished Xtol, but a $10 or $20 difference in real cost over 6 months is nearly insignificant when amortized over that same time.
