    The least expensive ADAT I/O card I have found is the Frontier Designs Dakota card ... streets for around $300.

    Actually, I think that Terratec is about the cheapest. I considered that card, but then I found a great deal on a used RME Hammerfall 96/52 card. Haven't looked back.

    E-Mu 1212M gets my vote. 2x ADAT jacks (8 in 8 out), AND you get the Pro-Tools HD series converters on 1/4" jacks (2 in 2 out). Even has cheap built in DSP for wet latency-free monitoring. $199 all day long at GC and Sweetwater.

    FWIW - I just got the RME 9636 off eBay for $225 with 4x ADAT connections...
