I had both of those cards. I had the ST with the op amp upgrade and the STX without. Both are great cards. I think the ST nudges the STX a bit in sound quality.

Highly recommended.

I'm running the ST right now stock with the H6 daughter board. Awesome freaking soundcard. First one in a decade that was actually worth the upgrade over onboard audio. I almost wish I didn't have it so I could buy these. My only problem is that none of the new mid-high end motherboards have PCI slots on them :(
