Prism Orpheus vs HD Omni/Native card

This sounds like a good matchup. I did all the reading I could, but I am not sure which one would make the best studio front end. They have similar startup costs, depending if PT HD is a priority. I'm wondering if the Orpheus brings something to do the table more than just being able to connect via firewire. Has anyone used both of these units? Who wins?

ok, I dug up some info. The Orpheus really seems to kick ass when it comes to I/O. If I understood the specs correctly the Orpheus is 18x18 while the HD Omni is 8x8. That's a huge difference.

Orpheus isn't PT HD compatible.

Omni requires a PT HD Native, HDX or 2nd hand TDM card to work.

Orpheus has not let me down but I don't work in protools. PS the Orpheus headphone outs also have one d/a shared between them. This means you get another stereo out you can use to drive monitors!

Other than Track count, what other advantages would PTHD have over PT10? I do not think I will ever record more than 32 audio tracks...EVER!

What would I miss out on the most if my needs were not extensive (32 io is plenty, 96 total tracks is double what I need, don't know what input monitoring is, lol)
