ProFire Lightbridge w/Pro Tools - any success?

Hi All,

I know that there are a few threads discussing this product and there is a fair amount of talk about problems with it (especially with getting it to sync eternally - which is kind of the piont of this device, right?). Is anyone using it with Pro Tools 7.3 and getting great results? If so, is latency a big problem with monitoring since it has not direct monitor? I have a Mac Pro 2.6 that I want to use with it and an Aurora 16 (unless there are any temping alternatives announces at NAMM) but would love to hear some success (or horror) stories before I buy.

I'm using now and it is working great! Latency isn't an issue with monitoring. The 7.3.1 update really helped out in getting some kinks worked out.

Works great here on my Macbook, PT7.3.1 with a Presonus Firestation for ADAT conversion. A 2nd Firestation is coming for 16 i/O plus Spdif thru my M1 Reverb.
All good synced internally with the LB wordclock out.
But I did notice sometime my M1 losing its spdif sync and I'm not sure why.
Only occasionnal and for a short time. I Tried various cables.
Anybody else experience this as well?
