I may have missed it... but did it say it had to be a playback system?
It strongly sounds like it, as it sounds in post #5

I know you sell DAW systems and that you are 100% focused upon that - but doing 200 or even 400 outputs on a network is very trivial for a Dante system.
I know, I was indeed strictly referring to the PCIe card in a workstation, as Psycho Monkey referred to PT systems. I should have been a bit clearer on that! Sorry if that confused or misguided anyone.

Hi Leon - Hope you are well.

So the OP asked for an interface - I can see why the assumption was made that this was a Playback/Record/DAW system... have you guys seen the system T from SSL - it has 3000 Dante I/O which is pretty colossal...

maybe not appropriate price bracket for some projects.

anyway - all good, and of course Love the DAWplus products.

see you soon

The OP never chimed back in with specifics of his needs like actual amount of separate stereo feeds running different program material at the same time. Until many more details are provided we all are just guessing.

If you need a simple playback of 200 channels, a cheap and decent sounding option would be 25 Orange Pi (similar to Raspberry Pi) computers and 25 ESI Gigaport HD+ audio interfaces. It would cost about €4500 for the whole system. If you need a synchronized playback, you can send a timecode over the network.
If you don't care about (sound) quality, you could also try several Orange Pi's with cheap 5.1 or 7.1 USB soundcards that you can find on Ebay for less than $10. You might be able to make a system for less than €800, but I have no idea if those interfaces have ALSA drivers, the ESI does, so it should be possible to make it work on Linux.

Yeh sorry - my reference to Dante was independent to PT - I was referring to the system in general.

All fine, Kieran! Your input and vision are always welcome.
And yes, I've seen System-T, it is a jaw dropper of the first order.

No problem, it wasn't an accusation, rather my interpretation of it.
