I have been using a CIsco 3845 for trunking SIP traffic to my PSTN carrier. It's been working fine in this role and it has dual power supply which i love.  And it can pass quite a bit of traffic as I have it doing some routing as well. Am I missing out on anything by not upgrading to the CUBE?

You might be utilizing the CUBE features on your 3845 and just don't know it.  Its just a right to use license that is not enforced.

Thanks for the enlightenment. Somewhere along the way I read that CUBE might allow me closer inspection of call quality between our side and of the SIP connection and the PSTN provider.

CUBE is suppose to provide an end point for the provider that remains consistent so they can adjust their settings to a known config, then you do the same on your end and CUBE sits as the translator.  I guess better flexibility for both sides
