428 AD converter option versus...PT HD

Ok, peers, before starting this thread, i have checked and searched through every similar thread here, so I tried mnot to duplicate anyone else's efforts.

I have a Focusrite 428 pre and I am quite fond of it. Right now, outputs go into Pro Tools HD through a 96i or 192, and yes, everything works. but I also have a third interface, the 192 digital sitting in the PT rack as well...

My question to you lot is: Is it worth buying the ƒAD option card and running that into the 192 digital? Do you reckon the ƒ converters are better than those in the 192 analog, or have any of you had time to compare?

Many thanks in advance for your excellent input.

I have a pair of older 428's with A/D, and I was told by Focusrite when I inquired about the newer Burr-Brown A/D's that the original versions were very similar in quality and sound to the Digi 192. So if that's true, adding an older A/D card would seem to be pretty much a wash. If you put in one of the newer boards, though, I've heard that they are a step up. No direct experience, however.

Thanks Sean, I've heard the same... so I'll center my curiosity on the newer ones.

Slutz? Any input?
