    Vote on DA/AD converters,

    Pursuant to my prior post, I intend to post a poll on each successive major component that I am considering

    In the following poll, please re-arrange these products in order of preference, based solely on sonic quality, irrespective of price, facility or branding reputation:

    Digidesign 888/24
    Pro Tools HD/96
    Pro Tools HD/192
    M-Audio Delta 1010
    RME Hammerfall
    Apogee 8000 I/O
    Prism ADA 8
    D8B (just the converters)
    Digi001
    Lucid ADA 8824

    Further suggestions?

    I’m sure some will look at this list and be astounded that some are included. I’m equally sure that the focus of that astonishment will be commensurably divisive.

    My reference to the decisions being irrespective of price, does not indicate that I have an inexhaustible budget. This is just my way of honing the choices according to my frame of reference.

    Appreciate anybody having the time, or interest, to participate.

    Simon forgive me if this is unwarranted...but two converters that I see not mentioned; that I do not see mentioned much on forums, BUT are more than likely the ones I see on sessions where budget is not an issue and the highest sonic qualty are (AND which would fight it out for one & two on my list) are:

    1.db technologies
    2. Euphonics

    Recorder Man,

    Know the brands, but not the products.

    I will do some searching. Any further information would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes...the db's are THE $*^t. I haven't used the euphonics yet...but I know of a few peolpe who have. I was specing out a room earlier this year, and had researched them. A graet way to go (there cheap in comparison at around 24channels).

    I also wanted to point out Benchmark's converters are supposed to be THE $*^t! Same with Mytek's. I think I'm going to buy some Myteks and some new monitors pretty soon.

    Is it really fair to post a poll (or vote for a poll) when you haven't used all the converters in question? I've used all but the M-Audio Delta 1010 and the RME Hammerfall. Can I fairly vote???
