Surely, it certainly would. :-)

The USBStreamer handles USB to/from ADAT fine between your MOTU unit and your PC/MAC.

I recently purchased the USB StreamerB, tried to connect to Motu 2408 MK2 and have no luck. I only hear air feedback from the 2408, so it's like the USB StreamerB isn't producing sound "out". Also, it's advertised that it will allow up0 to 8 tracks via toslink (Adat) to pc, I cannot tell if it actually supports when looking at the windows mixer.  

Here's an update. Best I get is distorted sound and air. the sound i get from the music i'm playing is distorted and faint. The Mout 2408 Mk2 works fine. I have an old pc, that I have it plugged into via audiowire, so it isn't the problem. On my newer pc with windows 10 is where we are having the problem when unhooking from the old pc and directly into the Usb Streamer. I got a thicker better quality tosklink cable to see if that was the issue but it is not. I updated firmware using the miniDSP_UAC2_v4.67.0_2019-08-15_setup found on mini dsp site...Stereo is the only option thus far while the device is advertised as capable of up to 8 tracks Adat.. Last, I only get the distorted faint sound when changing settings to 44100Hz, if putting up to 48 and or higher I only receive distorted air no sound from the cpu source. 

if there is anu updated drivers or anything I'm missing please reply, I would greatly appreciate it.

Ok, I figured it out..
So the drivers that was suggested wasn't installed already. I had to do a few things. first I didn't have access to min dsp panel. I had to download miniDSP_UAC2_v4.82_Drivers under  MCHStreamer  Drivers for the MCHSeries.. install and then i got the panel which allowed me to see settings. Second, i reinstalled the win drivers from  the USBStreamer_20180821_mac_dfu_v2_20.. In Addition, the installation tool to install Adat Drivers wasn't working once unzipped for some reason so I had to double click on it while it was still in the zip file itself and it worked from there.  was able to install the ADAT_I2S from the firmware folder..


For those with the Motu 2408 Mk2 and I assume this would work for the Mk1-3, this works in standalone mode, I have mine set as followed
(clock set to Internal /48), (Adat /Grp B of the adat option), (source 1-2/swap L to R). 

I also, have an old pc with the 324 card, works fine, reason I have mine set to Adat Grp B.. 



Problem Solved
