Sorry to bring this up again, but I'm struggling to find a solution to upgrade my
I use a MOTU 8pre interface on a Mac.
naively thinking I could feed a Benchmark DAC from the optical outputs of the 8pre - but
it's ADAT versus Toslink
So now I'm considering setting up an aggregate device of the 8pre and a quality USB DAC,
thus sending my main stereo outputs to the DAC.
With this in mind I can
access a Sounddevices USBpre2 for about half the price of a Benchmark DAC.
anyone care to guess where the Sounddevices converters would sit relative to a scale where
the MOTU was 1 and the Benchmark was 10?
The Sounddevices would be more
flexible for location recording too.............
Thanks as always.
