I'm about to pull the trigger on a 003 rig, but I want more inputs and I don't think I can afford a Digimax or the like. I love the idea of adding inputs via ADAT, but I'm hopping over the Digidesign because I want better A/D, and whatever I get I don't want it to degrade the quality. How much of the A/D is the clock, and how much of it is the filter? If I sync up an Behringer ADA8000 to the 003 system, is it going to sound better than if I don't? I'm planning on using the line ins off the ADA8K... I'm not going to use the pres, so the A/D is the only factor, I think. Along the same lines, will a rig of ADA8000's clocked off a Big Ben sound great? I'm still relatively new to this stuff, especially ADAT or SMUX... am I going to notice that my ADA8K inputs sound crappy while my 003 inputs sound great? Thanks again for all the help, you guys are awesome for newbies like myself.
