There is the Xonar Essence ST and STX (ST being PCI and STX being PCI-E x1) which is the card used in the comparison graphs. As the review mentions, it does lack native 7.1 support without an extra add on card, but it offers on par if not slightly better performance for 2 channel audio. I currently use a STX with my Sennheiser HD555's and I have been very impressed.
That would be awesome except that's all the reviewers have received to compare them to!

Sweet review AkG. That sound card looks like something from Star Trek lol. Not a bad little setup but I agree that the price is just a tad too steep...
