Lives for gear

I though the Schoeps superCMIT has two AES outputs? And the Nagra has one stereo digital AES input - so I am a little confused.

Anyone actually tried a Schoeps superCMIT with the Nagra Seven?

"AES screen
The AES screen gives the possibility to choose between AES 3 or AES 42. The AES 42 is the AES format for digital microphones. The Nagra Seven will supply the 10V power for the digital microphones (known as mode 1), but does not run the entire protocol to control the microphones dynamically (mode 2). The 10V supply is only available when the inputs or clock reference are selected to digital, and will be cut is analogue inputs or other references are selected.
The SRC Sample Rate Converter can also be activated making sure there are no synchronization issues between the digital microphones / inputs and the recorder."
