They've added the CS2000 and daughter card expansion header from the PCI version.

I must correct myself having read a bit more about the card and having seen some higher resolution pics. It does not contain the CS2000 like the Essence ST does. It is simply the STX but with a header applied so that it can offer the additional surround channels, like the ST.

Other differences are a different crystal oscillator going to the C media interface chip. Whether or not this does anything I don't know. From what I recall the C media chip uses an internal PLL for everything, still a better source clock never hurt anyone.

The other difference appears to be two small chips located west of the power inlet. My guess is that these are power regulators. What they regulate is anyone's best guess.

Anyone willing to give some info how to mod a toslink(receiver, optocoupler(whatever its called toshiba site is confusing)) for the spdif input header opposite the pci slot so I can run toslink from one pc to the other? I did a fair amount of googling and looking at this forum but there seems little in the way of posts on toslink.
