I was considering purchasing a digimax to go with our 002r. Here's the real issue... We just took a huge plunge and bought 8 channels of Millenia HV-3D. Maybe I don't want to do this. I can get a digimax (48K) for around $500 used. to give me 8 more channels via adat. I also have an 01V with the ADAT card, so the digimax isn't a necessity. I just hate that thing.
i've heard a lot of good things about the Mackie 800R, if your looking for 8 channels of ADAT connectivety in a preamp. They're 1000 bucks new, and I've heard they're much better than the digimax as far as A/D and pre's are concerned.
