i have a lynx AES-16 pci-e card (i think i fudged the name?)
one 8 cable tascam breakout goes on each in/out on the card.

allows 2 flavous of AD/DA if i choose.

nice system - which i havent outgrown...i have an apogee rosetta 800 going into 1 input on the card.

other options with more I/O are the wide range of PCI-e cards by RME.

EDIT: Sorry cant comment on ADAT - but mainly wanted to shout out about AES i/o options.

I have expanded my Motu 828ES with 2 Behringer Ada8200 adat interfaces.
For me that works good, having 24 ports in and out to my pc.
All it needed was 2 optical cables (one in, one out) per adat interface to get it all working.
DAW sees it as one big interface.
