So far so good!! 8^) *KNOCKS ON WOOD* 8^\ Tangentially: I wish there was a cheap way to route 4x4 stereo spdif signals directly into my mixer. I've been looking at coupling spdif/aes converters with the Behringer aes expansion unit for this purpose, but I'm wary of the possibility of signal degredation from the conversion. Anyone ever used spdif <-> AES converters and can comment to the transparency (or lack thereof)?
