Looks like something similar to the Auzentech X-Meridian since it's using the same chipset. Cool. Down with Creative!
Well after reading this, my plans for MP945-VDR Mini PC went out the window since you cannot use the onboard PCIe in AOpen configuration. Might have to go little bigger and use center console again instead of dash with AOpen idid i345 DIY kit that just came out. It's about 6" wider and 2" deeper than Mini & I can use one of these instead of external's I was looking at!
These cards are killer!

I can see something like this replacing the Chaintech AV710 for home theater usage if the pricepoint is right(Hard to beat the AV710, I know, I bought 3)
