2 Channel converters...how's that Lucid AD2496?

Gad, another 'how's that box?' thread.

So I've got Eight inputs through a Rosetta 800 into a Digi002. I'd like to add two more, and considering I've got a S/PDIF, why not? While eight inputs doesn't seem like a lot to me, ten seems like I'll be ok.

I'd like to save a little dough this time since I'm also gonna get a Big Ben.

The first and obvious choice was the Mini-Me since it's got a couple of channels of mic preamp along with the converters. Only one problem: no sync input. Maybe they didn't put it because you need a reason to buy a more expensive box.

So then there's the Rosetta 2oo, but it's almost 2G's, and the Benchmark A/D is too.

But the Lucid AD2496 is around $850 and it's got a word clock input. Anyone tried this thing?

I love mine, definitely sounds better than what I was using before [ Digi001, old TDM pro tools units, multiface ] and I'm sure a big ben will raise it even more.

this has been discussed quite a bit on this board as it's where I looked when I was interested in one, do a search for Lucid AD9634 [ which I hope is what you meant? ] and you'll find a shed load of stuff.
