A single CIAES and CIML4 gets me 20 inputs on 2 slots, leaving 6 slots for outputs, so 20 x 24 in one chassis. 13.x.6 or 11.x.8 and multiple free outputs for subs, or bi-amped mains etc.
The CIAES-16 uses RJ45 connectors, and lots of manufacturers make DB25 to dual RJ45 adapters. I like the ones from Ward-Beck.
I’m using one of the CIAES-16 cards into an iframe together with core 110f and the Ward-Beck adapter: Really solid solution for digital audio.
