I'm not Jim, but yes, the HD24 is capable of digital input at 96khz, but only at 12 channels (SMUX, or whatever it's called, which uses each lightpipe for 4 channels). The HD24XR will record 24 channels at 96khz via analog and the converters are apparently much better, although I had no complaints from anyone about my recordings with the regular HD24. I regularly clock it externally with either a Grace Lunatec V3 or a Metric Halo MIO 2882.
