    Hi everyone,

    Just want to know what is more professional from the following format's :-
    For example if i want to buy Yamaha DM200096 v2 to connect it to the Rosetta 800 or the pro tools HD 192 I/O .. In general what is the best format from the following :-
    1-ADAT
    2-AES/EBU
    3-TDIF (Tascam).

    Thanks

    Abdullah Al balushi :)

    best ?
    if ADAT is all you have for a transfer then use it

    but generally whatever works for you ... is best

    ADAT stops at 48k
    16bit for Type I format
    20bit for Type II format
    nominally it is a 48kHz, 8-channel, 24-bit data path
    BUT
    the February 2001 ADDENDUM
    tells us about the 96kHz, 4-
    channel audio interface using existing ADAT optical hardware.

    not sure about TDIF but I think it is similar

    AES goes to the 192
