    I would certainly rate the HD24XR (A-D and D-A) converters alongside the Ensemble and similar quality units. They are not in the very top league of stereo mastering converters, but on a per-channel basis are very good.

    I know your plan is to source from the D-A converters in a Zed-R16 at 96KHz, but if you wanted to use HD24XRs instead, you would need two HD24XR units, as each has the capability of 24 channels at standard rates or 12 channels at higher rates.

    If using an HD24XR to re-capture a 44.1KHz stereo mix, it's advisable to clock the HD24 from an external source, as its internal 44.1KHz clock is stable but slightly inaccurate. This HD24XR can't, of course, be the same HD24XR as you are using as a 96KHz source device.
