That seems like a neat box, but it would be overkill for my humble needs.
Still, thanks for the hint!
PS: I get routingly send catalogues from big stores. So, today I looked into one since a while.
There seems a rodeo going on between the manufacturers, global economy crisis causing a battle after consumers.
Anybody remember the times when product pallettes always seemed too meager and uniform? When there were too few companies producing too little variety?
Now the offer is incredible wide and flexible! You can find about anything individually needed in any quality range. thumbsup
There are four other modes that translate ADAT-to-S/PDIF. They are labeled “1&2”, “3&4”, “5&6”, and “7&8.” These modes resemble the presets of other format translators, allowing you to make an exact bit-for-bit copy of two adjacent ADAT channels to S/PDIF. In these modes SAM will ignore its Gain and Pan pots – they are disabled.
This is the S/PDIF-to-ADAT mode. SAM will distribute the incoming stereo S/PDIF signal to the eight outgoing ADAT channels as follows:
S/PDIF left = ADAT channels 1, 3, 5, 7
S/PDIF right = ADAT channels 2, 4, 6, 8
Again, SAM will make an exact bit-for-bit copy of each input channel, and will ignore its Gain and Pan pots.
(I have no clue who the seller is, but I found the listing a couple days ago.)
Those looked exactly like what I needed and even reasonably priced, but RadioShack says they would not be available anymore. :O(
are there actual Radio Shack stores where you are? I have found "discontinued" items still in stock in some local shops. They were even able to use some computer inventory system to tell me that another store across town had what I was looking for.
Unfortunately, we don´t have Radio Shacks over here, but for lack of decent offer I would had considerred ordering one from the US. - Eventhough the rip off on shipping ( crazy fees for direction from anywhere to Europe ) would raise the price quite some.
