Need Recommendation: Replacement For Tango 24 (8x8 A/D D/A converter)

Crappity crap, crap crap.

For the last time, my Frontier Tango 24 has over-heated. I can't complain--it's worked fine as a front end for my RME card for 10 years. But as the years have gone by it's now happening every few months.

So... to refresh, it's 24 bit/48khz. 8 in A/D and 8 out D/A. Selectable +10/-4 on each channel. Word clock sync. That's about it.

I don't need pre-amps (in fact, I just need line-ins for my better pres). 96k is optional.

Which D/A: dbx386 or 828.2?

Hi all, I hope the is the right place for this question...

I have a dbx 386 connecting to a MOTU 828 Mk2 via s/pdif. Am I better off connecting to the 828 with analog cables and thus allowing the 828 to handle the d/a conversion?

I've read that the 828 has "very nice" converters however I've not the expertise to make that judgment.

What do you folks think?

Thank you - ripe

New Sound Card? (Or at least new D/A Converters?)

My sound card is an RME 9652 which has ADAT outs. Working fine.

Now for years I've used a Frontier Designs Tango 24 for the D/A portion (to get to the studio control mixer) but the Tango24 now seems to be flaking out.

So... I'm looking for a decent, but inexpensive replacement for the DA portion. I already have a decent A/D converter so I don't really need any analog ins and I don't really need all 8 analog outs.

Facts on A/D and D/A conversion

I just need to make some things clear for me.
I am about to upgrade my recording studio and need to know the following before choosing equipments to buy with a limited budget:

Could I add an external D/A like the PreSonus central station to a 003 rack and use the A/D of the 003?

Is the RME ADI-2 a good option to record 2 channels at the same time and have good conversion back to analog?

A/D/A Converters

Hi All, I have a question about converters.. I recently switched from a digital board to a soundracs Topaz 32. I need to find a way to get as many individual channels into the computer (G5). I want to use the pres and EQ on the board prior to going ITB during the tracking phase and then come OTB and mix with the Soundtracs during the mixing process. What converter/interface would you recommend. I dont need the pres of any interface. The G5 has FW and USB at the present.

Using The Same Band/Artist Name As Another?

I've been using a stage name for a few months only to discover that another artist is using it.

The only difference is that mine has a 'Z' behind the name...So if his is Bubba Blocker, mine is Bubba Blockerz

He's been using it long before I have...

His genre of music is totally different to mine, he lives in Pittsburgh (I live in London).. He's unsigned.

He's registered his music on itunes so that might cause some confusion if I keep the same name and sell my music..

What do you guys reckon?
