Can anyone recommend a 16-channel optical A/D-D/A converter, with 96kHz sampling capability, for use with my new GigaStudio3 system? (If there are no 16 channel converters available, then how about 8-channel units?)
This question arises because Carillon now tells me, 5 days after my complete system was supposed to have been delivered, that the Frontier Designs Tango24 converter I had originally specified (as well as the Montana expansion card for the Dakota card) are back-ordered for at least a month. Apparently Frontier Designs sold-out all their stock at NAMM. So my system is sitting at Carillon's facility in New Jersey with a Dakota card and a Sierra unit installed, but no A/D-D/A converter.
I can't wait a month -- so as long as I'm going to have to select another brand optical A/D-D/A, I might as well go for one with 96kHz (the Frontier Tango24 features only 48kHz).
Thanks for any advice.
