This doesn't mean, however, that you cant use the Fireface with a Firefire 400 (OEEE-1394a) interface: the Fireface is completely comparable with the 1394b based in terrace is o significant. Well in keeping with many RME's other products, its possible to connect multiple FIrefaces to the same FIrewire Busess - up to three in fact - but only Firewwiere 800 offers the necessarily bandwidth to so so.
