Yes indeed. One way around this is to use the SPDIF input with something like the API A2D. Just be aware that the MIX knob has no use with the SPDIF input as it only operates on the analog inputs. There may be more options with the newer Gen 3 Mboxes and the new software that comes with them(the monitoring software, not Pro Tools).
