I'm looking for advice on suggesting and describing connections in the enclosed equipment that allow it to operate as a 32-channel recording / 34 channel playback system.
Could you please include detail of protocols, conversion techniques, data transfer rates, maximum channel counts and errors / correction in the conversions, physical limitations and clocking. In addition, sample rates, bit depths and oversampling.
Finally could you also please include knowledge of modern streaming protocols, explaining how this system would be best configured to connect digitally with a professional standard digital system for multi-track playback? This playback will be 'streaming' playback NOT file import and can you also determine what type of connections / protocols offer a bandwidth capability that could cope with this?
