Same with my d66. I happened to have a mixer with preamps and direct outs 
(from tape days, Fostex R8 as happens). IN any case, even buying a used 
d1010 would cost more than a new 1010lt. (some of which seem to show up 
once in a while)

It does depend on the use imagined. Portable with fewest possible boxes... 
probably go USB. 1818vsl or something like that. Put up with higher 
latency. Check it with each USB plug on the machine with no mouse plugged 
in if it is a laptop to find the one that works best (doesn't reuse an irq 
or get shared with some internal usb bit). If the computer used can take 
internal cards, it sounds like it can, add a new good USB port. It sounds 
like cost is important and that will limit you to USB AIs.
