The QS6.1 has a GREAT collection of sounds - but in its basic configuration is does not have quite as many as the N5. When you consider how expandable it is (with Qcards and Flash RAM/SRAM cards) there is no real limit to the number of sounds. The sound quality is excellent. But I think you have to look at the whole picture and just don't make any decision on just "sounds". For example:

Are you looking for a keyboard to just do midi composing? Are you going to use it for performance and if so will it be stand-alone or with a group? Do you need on-board sequence playback? How important is expandibility? Depending upon what you want to do there can be quite a difference between these keyboards.
