...i would go with a harddisk system rather than adat myself (mackie, tascam, etc). many of these have adat ins/outs, but hd is much more reliable than tape (imho).

yup, I wouldn't buy a tape ADAT system either. Just had a session the other day. The guy ran ADAT and had difficulties even finding tapes in stores. Got some at Guitar Center. Machine ate some of the tapes. Then recorded a test well. But after the session we noticed that the machine had recorded jittery and assumed Guitar Center might have had those tapes lying around for maybe some years.

Go harddrive recorders (Fostex, Alesis, Mackie, etc.) They all support the ADAT lightpipe system, which allows you to carry 8 audio tracks over one simple S/PDif optical cable.

Great advice. ADAT tape is dead. HD recording is the way to go.
