We record 48 channels for 2 hours routinely over direct conected Dante onto a LaCie d2 3TB Thunderbolt drive via an i7 MacMini with Lion Server and Reaper. We have recorded 58 channels as well without issue. Have done 48 channels through an unmanaged NetGear GbE switch with no problems recording or playing back; however, the Win7 VST host connected to another port on the same switch did NOT behave well with 6 Dante IOs routed – was unusable. We have in the past, recorded 32 channels with a PC DAW to an eSATA 7200 rpm drive. PC DAW was old and underpowered and had trouble playing back 32 channels to Dante. Have not tested Apple TB to GbE, sorry.
