    I think one of the main differences is i-link.

    From creative audio's website:

    i-Link is the new ultra-fast IEEE1394 Fire Wire link for digital to digital transmission. The basic idea is that all your CD, DVD, DVD-Audio and SACD goes down one 'fast', jitter-free wire digitally, rather than down six wires in analogue (which is how other amps do it). This does away with 2 sets of digital to analogue conversion, resulting in a cleaner, clearer signal. It's also an awful lot tidier too!

    The newer model the 2014i does have ilink - and very nice it is too (I upgraded from a 2011).
