Hi, I have a DAV BG1U and Neumann TLM102 which I'm getting along with greatly and relying on my Echo Layla 3G for the AD/DA. I believe my setup will be improved by an outboard ADC but I'm having a little trouble finding something suitable to match. My original though was an RME ADI2 but I do have a little more in budget that I could play with. I considered the Benchmark ADC but I think it may be a little OT for my needs (inc price) and the Larvy AD10 interested me, but again probably OT and I kinda feel the emulation modes are a waste of money. Anyone know of any other equipment worth checking out? I'm looking for the simplest 2 channel equipment with no thrills but an underlying good quality (i.e. like my DAV preamp). One thing that would be useful is some sort of direct monitor. Singing with headphones on with the signal going through the DAW the latency I get is just not right and I have not figured out a decent solution yet. Thanks for any help.
