Moving beyond the RME products--which I also use and love--is anyone
aware of issues/concerns when using firewire to move data from a
converter to a computer? How does firewire compare to USB, or AES using
a card, or lightpipe--that is, advantages/disadvantages to each, other
than what has already been expressed?

Here's a big DITTO on the RME products.  I've been using their
converters for the NSO for a few years now.  I have *never* had a
problem with them and they sound terrific.
