This isn't an indictment, just a question.
Because I can.

But I don't get those numbers with an RME 96/52. 128 samples yields 6.4ms @ 96k, and 12.8ms @ 44.1k. This is actual round trip latency measured from a S/PDIF loop.

Logic smokes Cubase performance wise on a Mac. I've also been using Protools 10HD on my Mac Pro w/ OS 10.6.8, and it is rock stable at 32 samples/96k.

The problem is Cubase with the Mac OS at low latencies. Obviously, the Cubase/OSX/MH combo isn't going to get you there. Cheapest solution would be to use a different DAW.
