expanding saffire pro 40

I posted this on the "Expanding Saffire Pro 40" thread, but I have received no answer... So I had to start a new one. I just had to...

I was originally looking at buying a Saffire Pro 24, but then I decided just to go with the Pro 40, for the 8 xlr's. I was originally thinking about adding an Octopre Mkii or the like to the 24 for 12 analogue in's, and then once I changed my mind and opted for the 40, for 16 (as I had hoped). Although, the 40 has only one adat optical in, supporting only four channels at 96khz. I would like 16 channels of 96khz, so would my best bet be buying a second Saffire Pro 40, and Daisy Chain them together? I'm thinking this would probably be the way to go, especially since the Pro 40 and the Octopre Mkii are the same price...

One Saffire Pro 40 (8 xlr's) plus one Octopre Mkii (4 xlr's to adat @ 96khz) for a total of 12 xlr inputs... (unless there is a way to get 16 xlr's @ 96khz)


Two Saffire Pro 40's (8 xlr's each) Daisy Chained together for a total of 16 xlr inputs, all @ 96khz...?

Please advise!
