Unless something has changed, DVS isn't great for low buffer settings. It's been a while since I've played with DVS though, but the last I did, the rednet PCIeR card was a better choice if you need low latency.

I'm just curious if I'm missing a reason to get the MTRX studio. Any input would be much appreciated
thanks,

I'm in the same boat but have the Omni + PCI Native card. Is the MTRX converters noticeably better than my Omni?

2 x headphones out and monitoring outputs are nice, but I would like to se at least 4 x mic pres.

Can't comment on the MTRX Studio (just put in an order for one yesterday from earmarked first-delivery stock; so will probably get it sent over today), but the MTRX (full version) converters are noticeably better than the Omni (I have both hooked to the same HDX system.)

I'll compare it to the Studio when the Studio arrives (between all three -- I have extra HDX card ports open; I don't think there should be an issue with DADman on a mixed system like this.)

The MTRX Studio, though, won't be a part of this system in the end but is going to another system and replacing a MADI HD in the process.

On paper the MTRX Studio specs are comparable to the omni, with slightly worse dynamic range.

The specs on the full size MTRX, again on paper, are vastly superior to the MTRX studio.
The numbers don’t suggest anything being similar in both devices.

But then again, there’s more to it than specs alone. However, I would think the omni and mtrx studio shouldn’t sound too different.

I’d upgrade for functionality, not sonics.

So difference in sonics improvement between Omni and MTRX Studio is small but Omni compared to MTRX is huge?

Is this the full MTRX?

I don't know if anyone can accurately say the former yet. Jamie Mac was referring to paper specs.
AFAIK (and I do from my US dealer), only the European market has had ample time to compare the MTRX Studio. The MTRX Studio in the US is just now hitting dealers. I don't know about the Asian or Oceana markets -- but I haven't seen them advertising access when Europe did.
