If you're going to stay in the analogue realm, my suggestion is to pony up the extra $500 dollars for the XR upgrade. The converters, themselves, are better (it's not just an increase in sample rate).JP
The higher sampling rates are "technically" superior in sonic quality (there's great debate about whether 44.1k vs 96k makes a huge difference). The XR converters also have better filters (and, hence, the better sound) than the stock HD24.At this juncture, though, I would opinion that your analog gear (both the Tascam and the Alesis 32s) will be your next crutch. They're not the best analog consoles available.JP
Sorry, I was meaning the Joe Williams mod for the regular HD24s.
