I currently use 2 Firestudio interfaces and have noticed some slight conflicts when running my external pre amps through them. I am in the market for a new interface/ digital converter and your new Quantam series sounds right for the job but there is no mention of how or if it will work with external pres. I currently run most of my external pres through a Radial Workhorse 500 series rack and that does have the dB25 outputs but the Quantam doesn't seem to accept that. Just wondering if you have any suggestions for me.

  Thanks!

The Quantum audio interface accepts line level inputs at both -10db and +4dbu levels. The line level inputs are by TRS 1/4 inch jacks, so a DB-25 to Quarter inch snake would work.

Also, the Presonus Digimax DP88 accepts a DB-25 connector for direct input. The DP-88 can be utilized with the Quantum via ADAT lightpipe cable for additional inputs.
