So I have a couple of questions for those with such knowledge to answer. First off, is the AES3 IN for microphones and if not then what? Second, I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 connected to pc via usb. My question is can I use the m920 connected to the Scarlett? Would it be usb from pc to Scarlett, 1/4" TRS balanced left and right out from Scarlett to XLR balanced left and right IN's on the m920, then 1/4" TRS LINE OUT 2 to the XLR IN's on my sub and finally XLR OUT from the sub to the XLR IN's on my powered monitors? OR, should I go from the pc via usb to the m920 first and then to the Scarlett and so on? Thanks in advance. I love the flexibility of the m920 and it's price point vs buying a bunch of separate components.

Why do you need the Scarlett at all with the Grace?

AES3 IN is digital, so no, not for microphones.
What would be the point? Using the m920 as volume control? It seems like the scarlett would do everything you need.

The Grace does not have microphone/instrument preamps. So you could use the Scarlett for inputs, and the Grace for outputs.

I would use the m920 as your DAC (output device), and the Scarlett as your ADC (input device). You would plug your mics and such into the Scarlett and your powered monitors/subwoofer into the TRS outputs on the m920. If you needed a quick way to monitor the Scarlett, you should be able to plug the outputs of it into the analog inputs of the m920.

Right, I use the scarlett as a di for my guitar recording, but not in my stereo.
