    Decisions, Decisions. Which one to buy as an outboard AD converter for location recording on a 24 bit DAT recorder?
    Pros and Cons: (As I see it)

    Apogee Pros
    Transparent. 120dB Dynamic range. Has limiter. 1U rack mount.

    Apogee Cons
    Can't use both AD & DA connected on DA-45HR.

    Hedd Pros
    Transparent. Cool digital processing.
    1U rack mount. Can connect both AD & DA to DA-45HR

    Hedd Cons
    No limiter. Can't find AD or DA dynamic range figures published.

    n.b. the need for the safety of a limiter as I use a Millennia Media Mic Pre with large step gain settings (I know this can be changed but it means shipping it to the States & its in use too often for that)

    Are there any other options I should consider for $3K max?
    If you've used both I would value your subjective opinions on either unit.

    I'm in remote Scotland...lots of sheep..no converters here though.
