    o AES3 - 2-speed or 2-wire, also handles S/PDIF
    o FireWire - for direct connection to DAW software on PC or Mac
    o Pro Tools|HD - direct connection of up to 32 inputs and outputs per card
    o Pro Tools|24 MIX - direct connection in place of 888|IO
    o DSD - for SACD production, with SDIF2/3 and optional MAC-DSD (Cat5) interface; also allows sample-rate-conversion between any PCM rates
