The 8pre is an interface. Adding the Octopre to it gives total 16 channels of input. No daisy chaining involved.

Don't think I'm telling you anything you don't already realise....but yes, to use all 18 inputs on the RME you would need to utilise the spdif and the AES inputs alongside the analog ins and 8 channels over ADAT.

PCI has no performance hit over PCIe but I wouldn't be investing into PCI this late in the game when you can't buy a new computer that will utilise it.
