Musicians friend. Wanted a top level quality interface to my Sonar XL S/W for home studio recording. Paid @$435 in 2001.

The pre-amp section is clean, quite, and very accurate. The (2) 1/4" and (2) Combo XLR -1/4" inputs support both balanced and unbalanced inputs (great for high impedance guitar and balanced POD and other inputs). Also has SPDIF I/O, Inserts, Direct outs, dual/ independent controlled head phone outs, and more features that make this a complete mixing console for the home Studio person. Supports unto 3 units tied together and sync'd via the SPDIF to make a more complete DAW. The Zero latency is REAL. This is one awesome unit that has performed flwalessly for the past 1.5 years and keeps on ticking without fail.

Considering tried other units and how it surpasses them, especially at the $$ point. None I can really state after the year and half of continuos use for personal and local band recording.

The only itme might be if they could squeeze it into a 1/2 size unit so 2 could be racked up in a single space. But given what it provides, probably not feasible.

Top notch. Lasted for 1.5+ years so far with mostly daily use.

If you want a PCI unit capable of being liked and expanded to support a large number of inputs. This unit rocks. Given it's age, if the price drops, GRab it!! Even if it is "only" 96Khz sample rate capable, most reviews show that is still more than enought to make a top notch demo!
