Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 / Fostex D-108 problem

Help! I recently bought a Fostex D-180, and have connected the two via ADAT. Recording is no problem, but when I playback I get a weird high pitched distortion. Have done all the troubleshooting I can - both on same sample rates, have tried different cables, only connecting the adat out to the saffire adat in, but nothing seems to work. Using the analog outputs works well, but I really do want to be able to use the ADAT connection. The seller assured me that the ADAT side was all working properly, so I'm at a loss.

I've attached an audio sample - hopefully that'll prove to be some use!

Any help, please?

Ah. OK. Solved it - needed to changed the clock to optical. Duh.
