I have been looking at the Audient ASP008 pre. I realize it's not a True Systems or Millennia or even a JLM TMP8 but it fits my budget better and from what I've read, it seems to be a fairly decent unit. My question is (please chime in here Kurt if you did end up buying the Tango24), I'm also tempted to buy the optional ADAT card for it. However, I have a Frontier Designs Tango24 which I could use for the A/D conversion. Would that be better than the optional card? The card adds another $500 to the cost of the unit.
