Hi, I invested in the SD888 earlier this year and so far loving it. I'm getting more aquianted with Dante and considering how I might use for future applications to expand my system that require more than 8 inputs. The obvious route for expansion to me is the SL-2, and while thats the most streamline / compact / film applicable solution, I am curious about other devices that might buy me the extra channels and also give me more versatility (aka more universal mic/line inputs), while also saving me a bit of $$. So far some of the most interesting options are: RDL SF-XMN4 - 4 mic/line inputs, 48v ph, compact. For $750ish it seems like the right price for 4x high quality preamps with functionality. Can anyone speak to RDL's pre's / overall quality? Neutrik NA2-IO-DLINE - 2x2 line I/O interface, compact. For $250 this is a cheaper option for a simple expantion of 2 channels. This seems cool if i just wanted to slap on a couple more line inputs, but not sure its worth the effort/money over just routing one of the returns into a recorded channel. Q's: -Ever use either of these products? -Any other options you know of? (Especially open to cheaper and/or lesser known products that provide good results) -Does the ethernet port on the 888 provide PoE? Thanks! -Brett **(I opted out of the scorpio because the majority of my work will never need that many channels, its the occational live situation that i might need to expand for. The SL-2 might still be the best overall option, just curious whats out there!)**
