Topic: AIO Pro can't use the Analog in and out expansion boards like the old?

Hi

I am looking to buy an internal card and don't need many analog in/out
just 2 in / 2 out  ........ I have UCX II anyway!

But the information is distracting about accessories and makes the person not understand anything

example
The site says that the AIO Pro supports this accessories:

    HDSPe AIO/AIO Pro: Analog breakout cable, balanced (BO9632XLRMKH)
    HDSPe AIO Pro: Analog breakout cable, unbalanced (BO9632CMKHPro)
    HDSPe AIO/AIO Pro: Digital breakout cable, SPDIF (BO9632)
    HDSPe AIO/AIO Pro: Digital breakout cable, AES/EBU & SPDIF (BO968)

No links, No informations............ When I search Google, I find that the accessories are available for the old version only!

does this boards works with AIO Pro or not?

Is there a fundamental difference between the old version and the new "Pro" in terms of AD/DA  + latency at 48kHz?

The AI4S and AO4S are not supported with the AIO Pro. All breakout cables are the same as with the AIO, so obviously what you found with Google is not meant as 'only old AIO', they just did not update their information with the later product.

Thank you MC
As I said I wand two analoge In and Two out
Is this breakout enough for my requirements?

Are there significant differences in latency between AIO and AIO Pro?
Because I heard that the performance of the old version is more stable
So I'm thinking of buying the old one, but I'm wondering about latency + will the old version still be supported

Thank you so much.

The AIO Pro includes an RCA breakout cable. If you need balanced XLR this is an optional extra, and the link is correct. Both cards are 'stable', there is no difference in basic performance, but the Pro uses quicker AD/DA that gives around 50 samples less latency.
