    hello there,
    We're looking for a (pc-like, cheap) ADAT onboard pci-e card for a Mac

      check out the RME HDSPe AIO.
      unfortunately it doesn't ship yet, but it might be worth the wait.

      very interesting yes, thank you. rme has allways worked perfect for
      us, excellent quality, but a bit pricey also.. in this case the
      quality matters less, since it's adat and mostly used for fft analysis
      etc.
      marian.de has the marc-a card, a very simple and cheap adat in/out
      solution, for pc only, but the os x drivers are in beta and should be
      other alternative is the m-audio lightbridge, around 400 euros and 4
      adat ins&outs, value for money.. but firewire 400, no pci (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/ProFireLightbridge-main.html
      )
      best,

      I think you won't find a a more cost-effective solution than buying the new RME Pci-e card compatible with both Digiface and Multiface.

      thanks, I guess you are right, I know about an adaper from express card
      to pcmcia http://sewelldirect.com/Express-Card-to-PCMCIA-Adapter.asp?&
      which comes around 100$, but I have not seen anybody successfully using
      it. the RME Pci-e is ~315EUR, which is in USD 430, err 450, 470, 490...,
      oops, better get it today!
      marius.
