    "Millennia gear is essential to me. I want the most high-resolution image I can get during tracking. If I want to distort, subvert, or otherwise destroy it downstream, well that's easy."

    "Frankly, the whole experience was pretty boring: The AD-596 was easy to hook up, worked without having to do anything other than make connections, sounded wonderful, and yes, it fits in a standard 500-series frame. The only real excitement comes from watching the peak indicator LEDs for the eight channels to see if they indicate clipping, and the fact that you can set the LEDs for peak hold as well as clear them—good for on-location recordings if you want to know whether there was an over when you weren’t looking. Another cool feature is what Millennia calls True-Lock-Clock, which basically means if the external clock goes away, the AD-596 switches over to its internal clock."

    "I’m pretty sure this is the only digital 500-series device, but it demonstrates the depth of the spec. Think about it: when used in conjunction with a frame like the Workhorse, you could have seven mic pres, send their outs through a DB-25 cable into the AD-596, then patch the AD-596 output into your recording device of choice . . compact, portable, and comparatively speaking, inexpensive."
