Which converters have you tried?

Hey guys, I´ll be shopping for a converter 2ch very soon and a little after that, for a 8ch unit.
What do you guys recomend... I´m planning to spend up to $1200 on the 2 ch and $2500 on the 8ch...
But all comments are welcome doesn´t matter the price... after all we´re gearslutzzzzz

Perhaps get a

2 ch Cranesong Hedd (amazing)


A less pricey 8 ch RME (then clock that with the Hedd)

Often recoding is mostly overdubs, so that's where I would put the 'spend'.

The Hedd has other uses on mixdown and can be used as a primary monitor d/a unit as the ins can be uses independantly for the outs..

Or a Lucid 2 ch unit + an 8ch RME

If you eventually are looking for ten channels of a/d, I would consider spending more and buying a cranesong spider. This is a very cool box for a/d and you get 8 mic pres , a summing mixer , tape emulation and master word clock. Best box for all!

I second the Cranesong if you´re not worried about the price tag...
