just to wanted to make sure I've got the right idea... I record on a power book using a Motu 896. I'd really like to upgrade my converters, but as I'm on a laptop, need to run firewire. If I were to send my new A/D signal digitally to the Motu, then to my computer, I would bypass the Motu's A/D, correct? Also, what would be a better connection, SPDIF or lightpipe? Thanks!
