Here are the RMS null levels:

Your test of iD22 --> AD8200: -41.2 dBFS (L), -43.7 dBFS (R)
Your test of iD22 (Insert Returns): -53.1 dBFS (L), -52.7 dBFS (R)
My test of ADA8200: -43.0 dBFS (L), -44.1 dBFS (R)
andyfromHH test of iD22 (Insert Returns): -42.6 dBFS (L), -43.7 dBFS (R)

So your iD22 unit seems perform much better than andyfromHH' unit. Please, could you do the DAAD test with your iD22 from the full sample ?
That's pretty interesting, even tough my clip clips at the end?
Note that I used output 3-4 on the Audient, bypassing the digital volume control (the big know), perhaps that is a factor.

Here is my iD22 loop-through, full clip:

Also did iD22 DAC feeding the ADA8200 ADC(/preamp):

And the ADA8200 DAC feeding the iD22 ADC:

I'm missing a 2nd ADAT cable now so I can't do the ADA8200 loop-through just yet. Also can't check if the ADA8200 performs differently when the iD22 is used as master clock. I will do that soon (for some reason they didn't send my new cable in the same package as the ADA8200)
