Hi Karl, hi LAU users
I've followed the discussion about timing and synchronisation - what do you
think about separation of number crunching and communication (ATNGW100) from
the "dirty business" of ADC.
We need the codec, some kind of amplification, a clean power supply etc. to get
a good S/N ratio - and we need it for a lot of channels.
There exist many (more or less) pro-audio devices with well documented
interfaces (SPDIF/AES-3; ADAT; MADI) - a cheap one is e.g. the Behringer
ADA8000 for about 200 €  with eight mic (phantom power) or line inputs and
eight line outputs. The codecs are email@example.com/48 kHz
