Eh, considering that I ran my 4660 during testing on my LCD monitor with a USB headset, I didn’t even notice audio issues.
I noticed it under Linux also. Sounds muffled with very little highs. The cheap USB sound card sounds way better.

Anybody know if it's possible to add Bluetooth to this box?

the IEC4660? USB - otherwise you’ll need to solder down an LGA1216 card (like an Azurewave AW-CM195NF) to the pad between the RAM slots and the M.2 slot and add the antennas accordingly.

I know this thread is slowly drifting off topic, but that was such a clear and succinct description! Bravo! :p

When I put my current desktop together, it was an easy decision to passthrough the Nvidia GPU to the Windows VM, and use the AMD one for the host system (Ubuntu Mate 20.04 at the moment). The Quadro behaves VERY NICELY on Windows and doesn't suffer from the AMD VM disconnect issue, while the Radeon Pro runs perfectly on the seemingly mature and stable open source AMDGPU driver. I'm happy all around.
I think that Nvidia's current "embedded" Signage/Video Wall solution includes "embedded" Quadro P2200 or T1000. These are discrete PCIe cards (as opposed to mobile), and I don't know what the difference is between the "embedded" and desktop/workstation models. Maybe just software? In any case, I assume it won't be an inexpensive or super compact box if its got a full size P2200 or a T1000 in it.
I am not sure if I’ve ever seen a P2200 or T1000 based Video wall box, or at least, not something like a USFF or SFF box. Although, it does depend on your definition of what a video wall happens to be. If it’s 4x4 4k120 displays you might need a beefy rack mount with multiple p2200s running SLI. For 4-6 4k60 screens that might be an HP t740 (or its DFI clone cousins) with an APU embedded Vega 8 and a E9173. As for something like this IEC4660 it’s probably only a physically large LCD (88”) with 1 1 or 2k screen that sits in an interactive touchscreen video wall kiosk situation that might require only a single Intel GPU.

Embedded? Oh, that probably implies something that would sit inside semi-permanently inside a rack or a dedicated Kiosk controller (think Quixant QMax2) with the need for higher temperature tolerance.

Thanks. If it's not plug and play I think I'll just go with a USB adapter.

Hm...I wonder if there are other machines that are similar to this Cisco/Moderro IEC4650/4660. Lets see.

Relatively reasonable:
Advantech DS-080/081?
Nexcom NDIS 533/535/537?

North of retarded:
Open Digital Engine DE5500
Haivision Coolsign S-CS-P-DE3? (note: The DE2 is just a repackaged Ivy Bridge NUC)

Just an update. Been using mine as a HTPC and it's working great. Originally wanted to run Linux but had to go with Windows 10 instead due to Bluetooth issues with Linux. Since it's dead silent it makes a great HTPC.
