Generally when using external converters folks often choose an interface without any of its own onboard ADDA converters - a pure digital interface.
Some Examples: For multiple AES3/SPDIF channels - RME HDSPe AES. For Multiple ADAT channels - RME HDSPe RayDAT or say RME Digiface.
The external converters work through the driver of the interface card.
Makes sense. Is there any reason to get something like the digiface USB ($499) which is basically barebones over a scarlett 6i6 ($299) that has SPDIF and its own preamps and I/O in case I need them?
