Re the USB 2.0 port of the new 32R - is this the only way to currently record all 32 channels onto a PC running Capture?

Also, is it acceptable to use a professional quality USB 2.0 extender system over dedicated point to point CAT5e cable?

(I need to be say ~ 50mn backstage - and remote from the 32R on stage)

Not exactly.

Series 3 mixers can use USB 2.0 or AVB (Mac w/ Thunderbolt only) to record.

USB standards state 15 ft for maximum length between devices.

PreSonus does not support the use of extenders or repeating systems for USB with our mixers. Performance with these devices cannot be guaranteed or troubleshooted.
