Oh no! I don't think so. Apogee makes D/A's that handle 24-bit 192KHz on
s/pdif. Here's a link:
This is a nice little converter. Or this one from Cranesong:

No, my stupid mistake. Sorry! I meant to say 48KHz in this case.
8 ADAT channels == 4 @ 96KHz
for a total of 14.
My 002 Rack does 10 channels in and out at 96KHz - 8 analog and 2 spdif.
It doesn't support RME's 96KHz ADAT interface unfortunately.
Or 18 channels at 48K.
