    Has anyone had experience with the RME ADI-8 DS 8-Channel AD/DA and Format Converter? Is it recommended and is there anything better you can recommend that's in the same price range?

    It's a decent mid level converter, in the range of Lucid, slightly below an Apogee (I'm thinking Rosetta here). Not in the same league as Mytek or Lavry. However, for $1,500 (or whatever it costs) you get 8 channels of AD, 8 channels of DA and some nifty features. Certainly an excellent $ per converter value, perhaps the best there is.

    Jim Williams (Audio Upgrades) does a mod on them, about $400 or so. It's supposed to take the unit to another level.

    I think RME is quite above the Mid-level quality line. We have 2 of the RME's and 32 channels of Apogee's. although the Apogee's sound smoother, they are are not "way" above the RME's in sound quality.

    RME's represent a good "Bang-for the-buck" value for sure.

    Just my .02
