    After a lot of searching through the Internet, I'm very surprised by the small number of digital i/o options that I can use with a laptop. All I can think of is the Digiface, or one of the Digigram cards (but I like to work with 96k).

    Is there a device that will allow multiple inputs through AES/EBU or coaxial?

    I have an Apogee Mini-me, which is fine most of the time, but I need more inputs from time-to-time, and I'm considering the new Benchmark ADC when it becomes available.

    Many Thanks!

    I should have said that I want to be able to use the Benchmark and Mini-me at the same time.

    Thanks!

    Thank you Scott.
    It's good to know that I haven't overlooked any major option; I tend to discover a better option the day after I commit my cash!
