PT HD to Console, signal loss

Im running a Pro Tools HD rig to my Soundtracs Topaz 24, I'm noticing however, a dramatic decline in volume (signal gain) when my signal hits the board. My setup is as follows:

Digi 192 adat out - Frontier Tango da adat in - Frontier Tango analog out - Topaz line ins - monitored by the boards main out into a presonus central station.

I am wondering if the loss in gain is due to

a) my board operates at -10 not +4?
b) I am losing some elements due to the fact I'm converting mostly digital signal running at 48?
c) calibration?

Does anyone out there have any input, I'm racking my brain a bit on this

Thanks, N8V

Why are you going to an adat after your 192???

Let the 192 do the conversion and use the -10 outs on it. Straight to console

Ahhh, I forgot to mention I do not have a DA card on my 192, only an AD, and Digital Card. I'm sure the method you described previously will work much better once I purchase one, but I got the 192 secondhand for a steal
