If i was to want to setup a lynx aurora 16 as my input channels with an RME HDSPe AES, and I wanted to use a different box for my DAC (Benchmark DAC-1), how would I go about hooking it up? is there any way of plugging the DAC-1 into the RME with the Aurora? or would I need a another soundcard for the DAC-1?
Also, my mac pro has a spdif output which could work with the DAC-1, however... I am wondering about the apple drivers, are they any good? Will I have shitty latency compared to a dedicated high end RME spdif card?
