Hey all
New here..

I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas of Class-A preamps that have ADAT connection I can plug into my Yamaha aw2400 recorder ?
I know there is the Audient ASP880 which looks great, that would probably fix my problem right there and Im guessing that they would work well with the Yamaha via my ADAT card.

Also I was wondering if I should instead buy converters and preamp seperately, eg a 8 channel-converter with ADAT in then mix and match my own preamps into the converter. so Preamp -> Converters -> then AW2400. Im guessing dedicated devices may be a little higher quality in general but not always.

hi rixsta,

there are many stand alone preamp/converters that would work just fine for your needs ... focusrite, apogee, presonus, behringer are a few to investigate ...

find one that suits your level of use and budget ... i have used the behringer ad8000 in the past but upgraded to the presonus which may (or may not) have been an upgrade ... both rack mounted preamps locked in nicely to the aw4416 and i haven't had any issues with either unit .. the aw2400 is similar in design features

good luck

I use an M-Audio "Octane". an older piece of gear that has 8 pres and is able to connect via analoge or ADAT > y96k (Wavs) card. This works well for me, allowing me to have 16 inputs. I use it for remote recordings, from the floor. I had to re-teach myself the config settings a few times, as i don't use it regularly for 16 all-at-once. But now I know enough to set my card to look for ADAT ( not Host) signal and all works well.

Note also that on the 2400 you can bypass the on-board pres on inputs 1 and 2 by utilizing the insert point, (available only on 1 and 2). You only want to utilize the return, so plug the patch cord (a Tip-Sleeve will work for this) in only as far as the first click. You can see the block diagram at the back of the manual for a visual. Also pg 28 of the manual.
