Firewire --> AES/EBU multichannel for 8200

Firewire --> AES/EBU

24bit / 192khz sound card / splitter / router . . .

should give full digital resolution feed stereo + surround sound on the 8200 series.

I have found one solution that seems up to it:

Lynx Studio Technology: Aurora 8/FW
$2595 US Suggested Retail Price

Do you have a better or just different proposal on how to do this?
Do you Genelec guys know what they used for the surround mixing studios?
Other experiences?

Is there a need to have this as either a FW or USB device?

Have you considered a PCI or PCI-E sound card? From your Lynx link, checkout the AES16e.

It saves you about $2K, and i assume it wouldn't suffer from potential USB I/O interupts.
