Hi Again,
First thanks to Aaron, Mac, Bruce and Kick for their responses. (See post below)
Ouch! That's a big jump from $300 for a Flying Cow to the other audio converters! $1,500-$2,500? I could buy 5 cows and wait for them to go bad. *Not*

Anyway the whole reason for needing a audio converter is to convert AES/EBU to analogue for monitoring and back to digtial again.
Has anyone used a Digital Mixer rather than an audio converter?? Is there any problems with this kind of setup?

Thanks again.

We just bought a Behringer D/A-A/D converter (including a sample rate converter) with independant D/A and A/D conversion as long as you stay in the same sample rate. It arrived today, I´ll let you know how it sounds as soon as we tested it out. Good point about it is that it is extremely cheap, so probably enough for monitoring. And it is a nice 19" unit...

I JUST saw that unit and was wondering how good it might be!
Funny.
Benninger is a inexpensive line of mixers, so it has a good price point.
The way I saw it listed, it looked like you needed to buy a AES card? Is that correct?

The converter we bought has everything built-in. No need for additional cards or whatever. Just A/D-D/A conversion.

Ops!
Wrong product.
This is what I thought you were getting:

Do you want to buy that and let me know how it works? :P

You do need a card for this one.

We use a Yamaha O3D, a little overkill for just monitoring, but all our suites have the same audio-setup, and this mixer was not being used at the time the 844 was installed. It works great though, plus it provides all kind of flexibility to connecting to a lot of analogue and digital equipment wiithin our facility.

We use the Intelli Mix from Yellowtec for our two suites, fit perfect for our needs.


Best,

Hi Todd,

If you are looking for a suitable "Cow" replacement converter, you can't go too far wrong with the Sonifex RB/BL2 or RB/BL4. They cost around $500 in the UK.

The URL is http://www.sonifex.co.uk

Hope this helps,


Best Regards,


Paul
