Sorry, I was answering a question for another post (yes, I get mixed up sometimes). Let me try this again. The new features of the onboard sound are things you might not miss, the biggest thing is that it probably supports more sound channels.
I hope you don't mind if I delete my last post, as it was intended for another poster, in another forum, asking about the IS7 and IS7-G.
