Mytek AD/DA with PCIE Audio Interfaces

Mytek AD/DA with PCIE

A very simple question that I need advice from everyone. I'm looking to move from a USB audio interface to using PCIE. I have a Mytek 192ADC and a 96DAC and so my question is what is the simplest way to make this work. I should add that I have a new pc desktop(9900K) that I'm building over the next week that will be running Window 10. Thanks!

Personally I'd go for an RME solution - they have THE best drivers by far in terms of latency, stability and long term support - basically they'll probably never stop supporting whatever you buy from them!

They do PCIe cards that interface with AES, ADAT or MADI.

They even now have ADAT, MADI and Dante as USB3 units as an alternative to PCIe.

Look to RME - you really can't go wrong with them.

I thought about RME and Lynx but what confuses me is the number of different pcie cards that are available. In other words, which model would you recommend for someone who records one track at a time with no need for many I/O. It will be vocals, guitar and 90% VSTi based recordings. Thanks for the quick reply btw.

Aurora 8 with RME HDSPe AES here and Mytek 96DAC for monitoring (Amphion One18)... a great combination of one of the best drivers (PC here) and a really nice AD/DA conversion setup. Works beautifully!
Thinking sometimes about selling the system and going towards the Metric Halo LIO-8 3D, RME UFX+ or Apollo x8 route. That would add some extra features to my system/workflow... but not sure. Working really good so far!

The RME HDSPe looks like a great option for what I am trying to do. Is there a cheaper alternative to RME?

Second hand RME HDSPe AES?

There's not much to go wrong this these cards so if it works it will work especially if you find a seller with a 100% reputation.

I've have an RME Multiface Mk1 thats 15 years old and it still looks like the day it came out of it's box!

Plus RME are still writing current drivers for it and adding new software features .... tell me a company that can beat that - new software features for an interface 15 years old!!

Go RME. I'm still using an old RME HDSP 9652 PCI card in my PC, they're still updating the drivers and it still works like a champ

I thought of doing just that but I'd rather avoid the whole conversion from pci to pcie. I'm leaning towards Lynx for now.

Thank you all for the replies and suggestions. I have boiled it down to the Lynx e22 or Lynx AES16e. Correct me if I'm wrong but the E22 has its own AD/DA with AES while the Lynx AES16e has no AD/DA but provides more AES connections. While I don't need the extra AES connections from the Lynx e16, I'm leaning towards it for the sample fact that I found a few online at a great value.

Having chosen between these two- Lynx e22 vs Lynx AES16e - are there any other differences I should consider?

I'm leaning towards your suggestion. Do you have any experience with the Lynx e22 vs the AES16e?

No sorry... just knowing some people using the AES16e with the Auroras.
