Headphone distribution amplifier with ADAT input? Audio Interfaces

Headphone distribution amplifier with ADAT input?

Does anyone know of a headphone distribution amp with ADAT lightpipe input? I have a MOTU 8pre, which I love, but the only analog outputs are L&R main out and L&R headphones out.

I'd like to be able to send different mixes to the musicians while tracking. The MOTU has up to 8 outputs via ADAT lightpipe, so I figured that would be the easiest way to configure headphone mixes - but I can't find a headphone amp with an ADAT input!

I don't want too spend too much, but I don't mind paying for quality ("the quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten").

The main headphones I use are Beyerdynamic 770 pro (250 ohm) so the headphone amp will need to be reasonably powerful.

Suggestions?!!

Aphex has a 141 that converts ADAT to 8 outs.

They also make a 4 output headphone amp with 4 stereo inputs...

Checkout the Hearback system, it's really a fantastic headphone solution and each player can dial in their own mix.

Thanks for the reply, but it's out of my price range. The system looks great though!
