    I have finished the review and the editors have it. So it shouldn't be too much longer of a wait.

    Great Review ROB, the only thing is it's expensive... Waiting for it to come down in price and I might get it... :)

    Thanx guys. Yep,plain and simple the ST(X)II Rocks big time. Price is a bit on the heavy side but such is expected with brand new flagship products. Should drop the same way other products do...

    Hey Rob.
    Thank you very much for the review. I read it and ones I finished reading I ordered one right away. Could not wait any longer.
    I have a question though. What is the best way to connect it. I have this receiver.

    http://www.gibbyselectronicsupermar...ater-receiver-with-airplay-sr6007-p-8002.html

    The main question is... Will I get 7.1 output if it is connected through HDMI cable of my GPU 780Ti to the receiver or I should use analog 7.1 to analog input on my receiver.
    Or maybe there is another way to connect it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Connect this card through analog....if you go S/Pdif or HDMI you are wasting the card and what you paid for.
