I run a Sony Vaio A-190, 512 mb RAM, 80 gb drive, 1.7 mhz Pentium M, 400gb external storage, and a Shure SM-57 mic. I use the box as a backup band for practicing bluegrass guitar, fiddle and mandolin. I also do a little recording. One other thing of note, the preamp does not seem to amplify sufficiently, so I have to run the audio through a compressor or amplifier on playback. My next purchase will be a condensor mic to see if that helps alleviate the amplitude problem.
Manual is very clear, you can also download it online.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the FA-66. I couldn’t ask for much more from this compact interface, I am really not a fan of the color though. I would like to see it in black or a dark blue. It kinda stands out and can look pinkish. But besides the color its perfect. Also, This interface works well in Linux using Jack with the Freebob driver. I have used it for a year and a half under Ubuntu Linux with fairly good results.
The only problem that I have with it is that noise from the computer seems to be picked up through the firewire cable. Activity corresponding to mouse clicks/window updates, etc. appears as little squeals and clicks in the audio. Also, I would have preferred balanced in/outs on all 4 analog channels. For my application. these are nuisances that I can live with.
