Default Re: Magma expansion chassis question

I'm looking into adding a Magma PE64R to my HD3 (PCI-X non Accel) rig. My Dual G5 2.5Ghz just turned 5 years old and in my mind, it's time to upgrade the computer...things are getting pretty sluggish. Obviously, I'll be waiting to see what Digi unveils at NAMM this week.

I'm planning on holding onto my HD cards if at all possible so it seems the PE6R4 will be the move. Anyone have any experience with the PE6R4 with 3rd party converters? I have a mixed bag of AD/DA converters: Digi 192i/o, Lynx Aurora 16 (w/ LT-HD) , and Apogee Rosetta 800 (w X-HD Card)...all clocked to Big Ben. I seem to remember reading somewhere that Apogee converters don't play nice with the whole expansion chassis game...or there was some added latency?

Anyone have experience with Apogee Converters, Lynx Converters and ProTools HD v8 with a recent MacPro and a Magma PE6R4 ??

Thanks.
