I think the optical on the Avocet is spdif not Adat. Runs off my TV optical which is spdif. You may not be able to conncet via lite pipe unless you have spdif stereo out on the desk.

Yeah I just got that info from Dave, there’s no spdif on the console
Would a converter like this do the job ?

That is a coax spdif to optical spdif converter. Not gonna work. You're gonna need something like this though not sure if there is a hit to fidelity.

You said you have adat out on the desk correct? If that is the case a spdif converter is not going to help. You need to convert adat to something the Avocet can use like the converter I posted. K.

The converter I posted I don't think will work for your needs. Wrong optical. Affordable adat to aes converters are tough to find but they're out there.
