|I do wonder if there is any point upgrading the sblive, if "bits are bits".|

According to well informed sources, they both share same circuit.
And as long as you have a decent receiver and the spdif stream has no data errors, it doesn't matter where it came from. Bits are bits, and jitter must be taken care of at the receiver side.

That isn't necessarily so. Under S/PDIF, the data clock is imbedded in the S/PDIF signal.
The receiver locks to the source's S/PDIF clock, not the other way around.
|It is a rare receiver/processor that reclocks the S/PDIF stream - they do exist.|

I use the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz-great SPDIF output, easy setup, stable drivers, no problems. Can't address the more technical issues, but do don't see the need as long as it sounds great and is trouble free.
