Tascam HS-P82 question

(1/1)

Gallerytech:
Hello,

I'm managing a video installation in an art gallery. I have a limited amount of AV knowledge, and am slightly confused by one issue: The artist wants to use a Tascam HS-P82 eight-track field recorder to output mixed 5.1 audio. The field recorder will also serve as master playback with the media server for video slaved to it via a Rosendahl MIF4 timecode interface.

We have two x Audac DPA154 amps and a 5.1 Tannoy speaker system ready to playback the audio.

My question is - how will we get 6 discreet channels of audio out of the Tascam HS-P82? It has only one pair of stereo xlr outputs but 8 AES/EBU inputs and outputs via a DB-25 connector. Can I simply use a DB-25 to eight xlr loom plugged into the amps? Or is this a digital output only?

Any advice greatly appreciated!
