HI
Just FYI, I'm in need of more ADAT I/O too, I'm gonna get Ross Martin Audio
converters. He is a very interesting boutique on-man-shop.
He gets a lot of praise and Sony Recording are using his converters.
The interesting part is that his Adat unit (which he told me will be up for
sale next week) will go for 900$US.
If that is your budget maybe consider him.

About the Behringer ADA8000. As far as I know they are still in production.
I've got one. Cost me 200$. Pretty good (not high end but 200$ come on).
It's a no brainer.
Only thing to complain that the signal goes through the mic preamps as
standard, but there is a simple mod that you can do if you're handy with a
soldering iron.

I don't know what more the ADI-8 series would be giving me that the Mul=

So do you think it would be possible (or weird?) to just get another Multif=
