Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post... I have a couple of questions, naturally... Looking at some past postings, the general consensus seems to be that the Digi 002 converters aren't bad, but they're not great. I'm thinking of getting the Focusrite ISA 428 to go with a 002, but I'm wondering if I should get the 428 with the optional A/D card. Is the conversion quality of the Focusrite A/D unit that much better than the 002's and is it worth $700? Also, not sure if this is a valid question, but are there word clock issues I need to be aware of in running the 428 A/D conversion into the 002 rack unit? Would the 428 be receiving word clock from the 002 through the lightpipe connection? Does the 002 even send word clock? Any thoughts or comments on the above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
