i originally was planning on trying to snag an Aardvark Q10 off ebay for the studio i'm setting up for my school, but the folks here are kind of reluctant of spending that kind of money on used stuff, especially if it's an auction item, so i'm looking at alternatives. the tascam fw1884 is a very attractive option, but a little pricey. i'm considering an 8-in PCI card such as Echo's Layla in conjunction with Behringer's ADA8000 Ultragain Pro-8 preamp. this preamp features an integrated ADAT interface, so would i be able run all 8 channels of the preamp to the ADAT-in on the Layla and still have 8 more channels of audio available on the Layla? my understanding of ADAT is a little sketchy, so forgive me. anybody have any insight on a setup like this? any problems i might run into? cheers.
