My delimna is that I want to watch movies on both my notebook(soon to be 8104 I hope) and desktop. My desktop has an Nvidia nForce2 soundstorm mobo with SPDIF and it has a control panel for bass management. If the 8104 has the same then I will only buy an external decoder and hook my speakers up to it with the SPDIF running into the decoder for both my notebook and desktop. If no bass management with the Intel HD audio, then I probably look at the Audigy ZS notebook and use their software with the proper speaker setup and control.
