Now all we need is a good digi-in bit bucket

For the USBPre with optical spdif you have the Sony D50 which is a great recorder.  Not much for a good, cheap reliable coax spdif recorder though.  PMD661, though that is a little spendy for just a bit bucket.

Wonder if they are just getting ready to drop the usbpre from the line up.  Then this would make more sense.

that brings up an interesting though.

How many recorders can take an AES inbound? What, outside of the 7 series are options?

Could always get one of these but then you have to deal with another box.



I would be a sweet box if they could put a Coax or optical out in place of the unbalanced mic out.

Can't you just use an adapter cable???  http://www.fullcompass.com/product/354649.html

Most recorders that can take a coax spdif input can accept an AES signal, either with a straight adapter cable like Terry linked to, or more properly by using a 100>75 transfomer:

BTW Terry, if you could change your text to read one-eyed d!ldo or something more obscure, the content blockers at my work would be much better about letting me read any threads you post to.  ;)

oo, neato. I knew you could convert via the hosa box, but didnt know about the barrel method (does it resolve voltage level differences, or just impedance?)

The 680 automatically sense type of signal and adjusts for it.   and with the 680 it does not always play well with converter boxes due to the way it reads incoming digital stream

oo, neato. I knew you could convert via the hosa box, but didnt know about the barrel method (does it resolve voltage level differences, or just impedance?)

It is designed for correcting the impedence differences, but it also affects voltage based on the turns ratio of the transformer.  I'm going from memory, but I think it dropped a 5v signal down to a 0.5V signal.  So yes, iirc it more-or-less corrects the voltage level differences as well.

I don't think it should be a problem using with the 680 since it is not converting the digital stream, it is just correcting impedence and voltage levels.  I sold my Canare 110>75 transformer a couple years back though, so I can't test it with my 680.

As does the Fostex FR2 - though I've never used the AES input feature on mine
