    Yeah, about the RME analog expansion boards (AEB), both the 8 output and input boards carry stereo signals though single 1/4 inch i/o jacks. In other words, if you want to connect your 8 output AEB board to your monitor speakers directly (assuming your monitors allow 1/4 inputs), you have to take a single 1/4 connector that plugs into your RME card, and then splits the signal into 2 1/4 inch jacks that would plug into your speakers. BS! Haha, but seriously, that's gotta put a strain on sound quality.

    Any thoughts on the subject? I WAS going to get the 8 output, but I think I'll just get the 4 output board instead (I don't think it does the stereo split thing like the 8 output does).

    Oh yeah, here's the links to the info:

    Yup..i noticed it a long time ago...never thought about getting those cards anyways..RME makes some great stuff but I'd rather just plug in 1/4 and be done with it instead of plugging into one device just to plug into another...yeah, I know..converters blah blah ...plus I cant afford to buy converters!
    Opus :D

    Haha, wow, thanks opus, I thought they were trying to pull the wool over my eyes, but I got the best of em! Whatever that means. Oh well, I guess 4 outputs is plenty good enough... until of course I can afford the Lucid DA converter, damnit, I've got the spending bug!
