Well, I finally bit the bullet and purchased one of these. Sold my Lynx Aurora 8, not because of sound quality, it was superb, but because I had to take 4 x 5m long 8 channel snakes with me to site to connect it to stuff, and the Lynx Mixer software is a hinderance to use. I really like the AES connections though, this is pro. But the TC box has some advantages. Its got the most wonderfully usable software app I have seen in a long time, the layout is how I suggested to Lynx they make theirs, ie just like an analog mixer strip. Its also got 4 more pres that I need, and the reverb, compression and EQ FX sound excellent , also trivially easy to route into the mix with that software mixer. The distinct disadvantages of the TC box is the firewire connection, this is not professional, and the complete lack of separate AES outs from the D/A. So far the preamps sound fantastic with a pair of 4006TL's, the only listening I have done. TC are still finalising driver stability and I have ordered a laptop for the first time in my life. A Lenovo T61 is coming and also a TI chipset PC-Card to do the firewire so that I can get a decent larger connector. I hope I don't regret selling that wonderful Lynx, but my back will thank me for not having to lug snakes and Genex around, and my sanity will be preserved running that wonderful TC software and FX. More reports to come after a serious outing. Firewire connectors are still producing anxiety.
