Interesting.  I've never run this particular box, but I'm hoping I don't 
have this issue with a MOTU 8pre to feed 8 tracks into the back of my 
Digiface via lightpipe.  I will be ordering one next month, and if it 
works out well, two more shortly after...  The RME A/D D/A converters look 
nice, but are a little price for what I want to do right now.

If anyone has used MOTU products like the 8pre or the 896HD under Ardour 
with an RME HDSP back-end, I'd be interested in hearing about your 
experiences with them.
