Also to keep in mind, for users that do sessions between 48k - 192k, and if you have a Pro Tools HD accel system with the 32-bit expansion chassis, you can't have playback voices set to 96 voices/6DSP... it will cause CRASHES!!!! stupid huh...
[digidesign recommends keeping it at or below 80voices/5DSP]

The Apogee Symphony card looks promising, but only if you already have or were intending to get Apogee converters...
