Will this create issues like crosstalk, inductance, speed reduction, clicks, clocking issues, bandwidth reduction, RF and other things I may not be aware of?
USB: 1. Houston Controller to/fro MAC
2. Pure 2 ADDA to/fro PC
What are the pro's on con's of MADI vs AES/EBU? Is there a bandwidth drop with MADI. If it is so close, then I would go with MADI just because it has great flexibility, less cable and greater channel count over a long run. However, I am more concerned with quality of sound so its why I ask for opinions.
(sound quality vs channel count).
digital AES/EBU connections sound relatively thin in the midrange.
AES/EBU sound better
AES/EBU has more bandwidth.
BNC or true 75 ohm RCA connectors is a significant upgrade if you use the coax connection.
aes should introduce less jitter than S/PDIF under most circumstances
AES and SPDIF have no inherent sonic differences. They only differ by their metADATa and binary voltages
S/DIF interface was clearly superior to all others

I have an problem about AES/EBU samplerate between MOTU 896HD and DAT.
When I connect 896HD AES/EBU output to DAT input then change the samplerate by 896HD setup software on my DAW.
Whenever I changed the samplerate from 32k,44.1k to 48k.
The DAT samplerate still stay at 44.1k.
After that I try another DAT but the situation as same before.
But I try to connect 8896HD to DAT via SPDIF coaxial.
I can change the DAT samplerate from 896HD setup software via 896HD SPDIF coaxial.
It is too strange.
I'm sorta a noobie to digital recording, and I need some advice on some new equipment. I'm going to expand my analog studio to digital. Now I'm wondering what I need to look for when purchasing some sort of soundcard. I'd like to use Pro Tools (does it matter if it's LE or M-powered?), but I have Logic Pro for now.
Because of the Nyquist Theory and Lightpipe's restriction to 48khz (which really is not a restriction at all), I would think Lightpipe would be the best connection.
Does anyone have definitive information on this?
What is the difference between these 2 cables, and can I use a standard XLR interconnect -- out from an inrerface AES/BU -- to digital [AES/BU] in on a DAT recorder?
