Help on connector cards for pro tools

I have just got pro tools 9 and need to connect some apogee ad8000 ( and big ben ) to a mac 8 core .

I have been told either of these two cards will be able to do it ,

Lynx Studio Technology AES16e PCI Express 192 kHz AES/EBU Interface | VintageKing.com

RME HDSP AES-32 I/O System | VintageKing.com

Does anyone know any benefits of either ?

The lynx is cheaper , though the RME says it has an onboard word clock i/o . Would I need that to connect to the big ben ?

Very grateful for any help!

Thanks ,

I have the exact same question, i just dont have the big ben clock.
If you find the answer, please contact me. If I find something I will answer here too.

I don´t think this would be a problem, I just think the outs from the card to the monitors would have to be converted, as they only have AES/EBU outs. Or use a simple interface, like a Mbox just to connect the monitors. I´m looking for some answers for this too.

Apogee makes a PCIE 32 and 64 card. Check ebay. I think they go for about $800

Do they work with the AD8000? The info i found is that it is designed for Rosetta 800, Rosetta 200, AD-16X and DA-16X.

I am sure it will work but you need to find some very rare AMBUS cards that give you 8 AES in and out on a Dsub. It certainly works well on My Mackie HDR!!
I have 2 and need a 3rd, just cant find one.https://static.gearslutz.com/board/im...ies/nu/009.gif

If you search, I've written about this several times. Short story, RME was my choice. As you are using a Mac, you might check with the RME site or ask their customer support if there is anything that affects you differently. I use a PC.

And the RME has W/C I/O You can feed your clock into it and have it slave to the clock and output to other devices, you can use the AES 1/2 from the converters to create your clock and have everything else slave to it,... basically all the usual stuff.

The only big deal (which is not a big deal) is the pin outs, which would be different for the RME dsub than the Lynx dsub.
