Hi all,

I've had the MBox Pro 2 for some years now and can say with confidence that it is a solid and reliable piece of gear. I've used it for all kind of simple recordings, mostly vocals and guitars/basses. It has been my main interface at home and for small projects on the road.

I like the MBox Pro 2 because it is good at its job. The recording quality is solid, in part thanks to the Firewire connection. The preamps are great quality for a midlevel interface and there is no noticeable fuzz during the "silence" during recording. I have never had any problems during recording, even when using the box to its full potential. I also have until now had no problems driving low-impedance or high-impedance headphones. Alongside that, it is pretty well designed and I, as a guitar player, particularly enjoy the front-facing line inputs. It is easy to understand the layout of the MBox Pro 2 and it takes up very little space, as well.

For a small home-studio setup, I think this is a great product. It has a little something for everyone, including an external word clock for the 'post' community, the phono preamp for the DJ community and the extra I/O is great for everybody. Although I never had it myself, I've heard from others it was a real improvement on the original MBox Pro so if it's an option for you, get yourself the upgraded version.
