    I wish they'd spend the extra dollar and put gigabit internet on most or all boards. As has been mentioned before, I'm a big fan of mini-ITX / low power systems for fileservers and having to add a PCIe gigabit card, especially when you only have one slot to play with, is a pain in the arse.

    Even though its an asus I'll still buy one on release day.................unless Gigabyte release similar

    At last a true HTPC board that will be OK to leave on 24/7 without upping the power bill too much

    18w tdp is what does it for me. passive cooling surely at that level meaning regarding the case its a 'case' of how low can you go profile wise. 'Scuse the pun. Long live HTPC!

    I do, and it says that DTSHD and TrueHD only works over HDMI as Toslink is limited in bandwidth...
    That said, I don't hear any difference between "normal" digital surround and DTSHD :D

    Toshlink like RCA is limited to AC3 5.1. You can use LPCM (? forgot the damn acronym) to output each channel individually in HD, or use HDMI 1.3 but it requires a compatible (expensive) decoder and even then it's all only as good as your speakers.

    Well, every HDMI input 7.1 Amp really these days.
    But you're right, to actually hear the difference you'll need more.
