8 Channel DA with ADAT. Options???

Here's the scenario: I'm thinking about taking the plunge into an Audient Sumo for a bit of summing action. I've been doing a mix thru it and am really liking the results but my weak point is the 002 rack (while doing this mix, I've blagged an RME Fireface to use).

So what I'm looking to do is get an 8 channel DA that will take an ADAT input from the 002r. If I had the dough, I'd plumb for the Rosetta 800 (which I've tried and love) but I can't swing that. So, is there anything out there that will do the job, sound better than the 002 and not get me divorced when she opens the bank statement?

Maybe an RME ADI 8 Pro or DS (if you work at 96KHz) would be a suitable substitute; It's the only good sounding converter that has a reasonable price, I guess anything below (think Alesis AI8 or Behringer ADA8000) would be wasted money and you may as well use the Digi's I/O then (plus, wasted money would nudge you a step closer to divorce heh ).

Hope this helps
