Having read up about the EV & Peavey units and talked to a friend, I don't think I'm very interested in them. Seems like waiting for an OmniDrive 366T used is going to be the ticket for me! Thanks guys.

Still though, any thoughts on 3+ ADA conversions?

It's better than having no sound.  It's better than bad analog.  It's not as good as staying AES/EBU from console to amps..

This old dinosaur sounds pretty good, has aes in, and has super-fancy motorized pots on the front.

It's older so could possibly be had cheap.

Hi Samuel,

Take a look at the Xilica XD and Neutrino units.
I regularly work with the DLP4080 series and own XP series.


"Still though, any thoughts on 3+ ADA conversions?"

Obviously, the fewer conversions the better.
Particularly with monitors, the delay can add up.
Right now I'm going analog into a digital mixer, analog out of the mixer, and in to the Xilicas, then analog to the amps.
Throw in a digital wireless mic and amps with digital processing and, well, going digital and staying digital all the way through the signal chain makes sense.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo
