SPDIF is _always_ stereo. Its the spec of the standard. So if a device has a 
spdif in and a spdif out (additionally to all the analog connections) it 
means that you get two more mono-channels or one more stereo channel to use 
if you have sources with spdif connectors.

BTW: Most common ground for counting of channels is to count mono-channels. Of 
course in practice you can use two mono-channels to record or playback a 
stereo source...
But the 1010 sells better than a 55 ;-)

Have fun,
