I've heard a lot of good things about the Alesis Ai-3. I'm also looking around. Also, There is one made by sta audio or st audio in musiciansfriend.com
It looks a little nicer than the Alesis, but I haven't heard anything about it.

well there are lots of ways you can do this. I guess it all depends on how much money you are willing to spend. Lets make a small list shall we?

The absolute cheapest way to get adat in is to buy a broken ADAT machine. ADATs are natorious for breaking, however what almost always breaks is the tape heads. They are still good units of doing the A/D converting. You just run audio threw them but you can't use the tape function.

Next are the lower priced units that go for aroun 300 bucks. The alesis AI-3 is one. It is pretty popular around here.

Then we get a little higher with the Tango 24 from frontier design. It runs about 699.

The swissonic AD24 MKII will do A/D for around 799. However you have to get it's brother the DA24 MKII for about $630 to do D/A.

Next, and my personal favorite is RME's ADI 8 AE. It goes for around $1200. It does all of the same things as the ADI-8 DS except it has a little bit lower head room. It does great A/D and D/A

And at the top of the list for 8 channel converters, is the Apogee AD8000 which just does A/D for around 6 Grand.

Ok so there are a couple I left out just because I'm tired and want to go to bed, but you get the Idea. Have fun
