Default Mix system i/o limitations

how many 888's can you hook up to a mix system? it was my belief that it max'd out at 6 units but i have read that as long as you have the cards you can hook up as many as 9 for a total of 72 inputs?

anyone know for sure?

72 inputs total is possible, but you will not be able to use them all simultaneously because of the 64 voice limit.

I have 8 x 888/24s working fine here, attached to 4 mix cards in a PCI Chassis via 'Y' cables.
