Digi 192 vs 96

Hi Charles and Jules and Jon and all

I think this is the right forum to ask this question. I'm planing to upgrade from a Digi 001 setup to HD. It will cut a hole in my wallet, so I'm checking which converters to buy.
I have to buy at least 24 channels input and 32 channels of output converters.
My main question is: how big îs the difference of the 192 to the 96?
Is there a converter that can be compared to the sound of the 96?

Thanks to everybody Jo

For a commercial place (with the number of channels you're talking about that would be one hell of a home studio!), I would definitely go for the 192. It has way better sound, more complete and flexible interfacing options and I'm pretty sure they will hold a better reselling value a lot longer.

If you want even better converters, buy the 192 digital i/o and get the top of the line converters of your choice... That can easily turn into a costly proposition though!

Hey Jo, where are you situated in switzerland? Just curious as I have some friends over there... One of them makes a wicked röstie!

I compared a number of converters (HD96, HD192, Trak2, AD8000, 888/24) side-by-side on parallel HD systems.

To my ears, the HD192 and Apogee converters are both well above the HD96 and 888/24.

If my choice was limited to the new Digi converters, I would go with the HD192 without a second thought.
