Digidesign 192 Digital IO

Does anyone know if the Digidesign 192 Digital IO expandable with the Digi Ad or DA boards. I know that Digidesign 192 IO allows for additional analog boards to be installed, but am being told that Digidesign 192 Digital IO cannot be expanded with analog boards. Which is true?

Thanks

Regards...Yury

it's got a smaller power supply so you can't add A/D.

This has probably been covered before, but does anyone know if I can take out the AES card in my 192 and put in a A/D card? I already have a D/A card in the expansion slot, but I want 16 inputs as well.

It seems silly to make a box that can handle 16 I/O, but only let you have 8/16 I/O ( or 16/8)

Someone on the DUC a while ago claimed that Digi told them they didn't advertise that the 192 I/O could handle both 16 analog ins and outs but it was possible. I personally wouldn't try it though because I have heard it wasn't designed to do it because of heat issues but who knows.

The 192 Digital looks like it can be expanded, but it cannot. Is uses the same chassis as the 192io, so that is the reason for the blank back panels. The insides are different between the two models, so the 192 is not simply a 192io with two digital cards installed. I hope this clears it up for you...

A 192io can have an extra A/D card or D/A card installed, but only one. Digi does not try to hide this info. All Digi TDM resellers know this, and it is plainly stated on the Digi website and in marketing materials. I realize you are just repeating info Vaphoron, but the original poster on the DUC must have been an idiot. I'm sorry that you were misled... installing an expansion card is perfectly safe for a 192io.

Sorry I wasn't clear but I know that Digi tells everyone that only one extra card can be installed. I was talking about someone who wanted to remove the Digital card from a normal 192 I/O and put in both an A/D and D/A card. I actually looked up the post that I was talking about before on the DUC. I never actually read the results before but the guy who tried it says he was told directly from Digi that it would work and he even ordered the stuff from them through the artist program they have. He hooked it up and it didn't work and he sent it all back. I would like to think that they misunderstood him or he misunderstood them but I do know there are some people that just plain don't know what they are talking about. When I bought my HD Accel exchange, my dealer didn't even know about the promotions going on at all. He also told me that the legacy port was pointless because I could only use the 192 or my legacy interface, not both. Not all dealers are as well informed as they should be.

Unfortunately, this would be indicative of a poor dealer.

FWIW-

To go along with their 'premium' pricing structure, Digi's TDM level dealers tend to be pretty tech savvy, on average. You got a bad one.

I guess I can agree with that. It didn't matter all that much considering I always know what I need and they gave me the best price. I have talked to several other places that have some guys that really know what they are talking about including Alto Music, Sweetwater, Guitar Center (not all of them) and West LA Music.
