JamMan uses a fully custom type of ad/da conversion using mostly discrete 
parts, which is the ancient way to do digital audio. it doesn't use any 
standard protocol interface or anything like that. figuring out how to 
improve the convertors would be very difficult. it might be an interesting 
science project, but totally not worth the effort imo.
