So Ed, the mikes go into the preamp and the preamp has an A-D converter, then SPDIF into a recorder? 
In my case it’s mics > mic amp(cmc6) > pre (v3) > adc (ad2k) > recorder ( digital in)

And Nicky probably gave me the Hooters I can’t remember I’m old

Ed, what cable(s) do you use from V3 to AD2k? XLR out, BNC, out or AES out? Asking as I have recently picked up an AD2k to do my cassette transfers feeding the outs via BNC to SPDIF in on a DR680
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

Mics:         AKG460|CK61|CK1|CK3|CK8|Beyer M 201E|DPA 4060 SK
Recorders:Marantz PMD661 OADE Concert mod; Tascam DR680 MKI

I use XLR cables, analog out
I like the Grace sound as a pre, not ADC

fostex d5 to tascam da3000. the d5 is the best dat machine i ever owned. had one and wore down the heads and got another off local craigslist for $150. it's a no frills machine, but all you want is it to not eat your tapes and pb without diginoise.

Have 3 decks. Only 1 works. The 2 that don't nobody will repair them. Found a guy who did in midwest. Emailed him and suddenly he didn't want to. At least my D7 and D8. Pain in butt.

One of the benefits of having a higher end unit like the Sony 7030 or 7040 is that the unit is ridiculously large with lots of space between components, and was made as constant duty professional deck capable of being easily rebuilt, as compared to the smaller units that are a PITA to work on.
