I use the headphones on the monitor controller and not on the converter anyway.
Yes I think that should work, especially if you are using the Babyface like that (if I understood correctly)
The second headphone out (3/4) is a separate output.

Will there be any sort of loss using the headphones out instead of the main out of the ADI-2 for monitor feed other then being unbalanced?

Guess its time I read the manual..

The manual states the 3/4 phones output is perfectly suitable to use as an unbalanced line out.

I own the Lyra 1 and had the ADI2P here for a months testing. Sent the RME back as the ADDA difference was negligible.

Caveat 1: I only record my own vocals, so cannot compare with instruments.

Caveat 2: I have a USB ground loop issue. The RME wasn't affected by this whereas I need an isolator for the Prism (Uptone Regen).

Owned a Prism Sound Orpheus for years as my main interface/converter and the RME is way better than it. Listening to old ad/da loops made with the Orpheus is almost embarrassing.

Again, not trying to be an asshole, but weren't you the guy that was commenting on the sound of the RME with tape plugins running on the background? You've proved yourself to not be listening carefully...

Indeed. I didn't assume U-He Satin would hiss when the transport wasn't engaged. Live and learn, all my testing since then has been with no extraneous applications or processes running.

Note the caveats - the Lyra is much better using the USB device. Pulled it up to RME levels. I can't speak for the Orpheus. Without the Regen the RME was the clear choice (I've mentioned this previously in this thread). With the USB device the upgrade wasn't worth it for my own needs.

Had I heard the comparison with the Kii THREE's, the outcome may have been different. Again, I cannot comment as I was using PMC's at the time.

Previously in this thread I recommended the RME unit as the choice to get that this price range for ADDA. I assumed the thread had been read.

Hello B0se,

Can we assume that's still the case?

Also, what did you think about the ADI2P against the Crane Song Solaris?

Thanks,

Yes, the ADI-2 Pro would be my choice for 2 channel ADDA.

As with audio, people need to try it for themselves. I know some peeps who prefer a Lyra for their ADDA loop over other converters. Acustica use one to sample all the hardware for their plugins (which are unmatched sonically).

For me, I heard no discernible difference with my own vocals and didn't feel the need to sell the Lyra to move to the RME. I am not a versed recording/tracking engineer however, and my needs for AD are singular.

Each to their own :¬)
