But the Multiface has ADAT too for only $800-900. And it has the
computer uplink as well. It actually looks like it has more
functionality than the ADI-8 (unless I'm missing something), since an
ADI-8 can't be connected directly to a computer, but a Multiface can via
RME's PCI-E card.
So why would I want an ADI-8? If it's possible to hook up a second
Multiface to a first one's ADAT port and run the second one without a
computer, then that seems like a much cheaper way to get 8 more i/o's.
