@tritosine: That USB solution doesn't look bad, but pricey for 12+ channels... And I'm on a pretty tight budget with all the expensive things already bought, so I'm probably gonna have to stick with the Lynx. Still not totally ruling out a different solution. Can always find some sucker to buy the Lynx ;-)
Hijacking word clock from SRC4392 or 4192 is definitely an option, or simply make a discrete word clock divider from master clock. It'll be harder to change sampling rate later, though.
I've looked into LVDS earlier, but again, that means replacing the Lynx with another piece of expensive hardware. Or possibly modding it to bypass I2S-S/PDIF conversion if it's done in hardware.
@fmak: Are you getting 450 ps from a Lynx output, or from another input? I don't have a scope, so I can't check my outputs. Should probably get one...
I'll only be using the Lynx as a source. As I mentioned, I will do software upsamling before DRC and crossover filters. The Lynx will do nothing except push an already processed 96/24 signal, and the SRC is only there for reclocking a possibly jittery recovered clock.
BTW I'm running a dedicated file server with 8 1TB disks in RAID-5 on an Adaptec 31605 controller, so I'm set on that department ;-)
@theAnonymous1: I've read your MicroDAC thread a couple of times already. Love it!
