Using Mac Pro Digital i/o for HW insert

Hi Y'all, so here's the deal:

For my home setup I have a Macpro 8 core 3Ghz and I don't want to use any of the PCIe slots for i/o interfaces, as I'm saving them exclusively for DSP cards ( so far i have Duende PCIe and UAD2 duo, and saving the 3rd slot for PoCo).
However I do have a lex pcm 91 that I'd like to use as an insert in logic 8.
My plan is to get the HOSA toslink->AES converter and use the pcm91 AES i/o to connect to the mac's digital i/o
Is anybody using a similar setup? how is it working out and are there any issues with latency or anything else?

P. S. : I'm using an Apogee Duet for recording and monitoring and I'm outputing mixes to my old G4 via Ethernet.
