Does anyone own a MSI X58M mainboard? Are there any digital audio connectors on the board? Is it possible to send the audio digitally to my speakers?

The term you're looking for in the product specifications is S/PDIF, which is the psudo-standard for sending digital audio to an amplifier.

Nowhere is S/PDIF mentioned on their website, nor can I find any reference to S/PDIF on any reputable websites, so I'm going to guess no.

Usually S/PDIF is provided by a breakout cable from the mobo on these kinds of boards, and finding someone who sells the breakout cable is often an exercise in futility as well...
