"Great Interface!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had my eye on this particular interface for a while now. I've had the Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 for like 11 years and it worked perfect but it was clearly outdated and so it was time for an upgrade. I definitely wanted to get Focusrite again but something higher in their product line up, Clarett really got my attention. I wanted something rack mounted. I just ordered a 2 space rack for my desk top, it will go perfectly with my new 8pre USB and my Furman power conditioner, thats all I need at this point. Anyway I jumped on this particular one because its supposedly blemished and seeing as how the Clarett 8pre USB is currently on back order and wont be available for months I figured this was a great opportunity that I couldn't let pass up. Im glad I did! The interface came one day earlier than expected and there was only one semi-noticeable scuff mark on the top of the interface which doesn't bother me one bit because I purchased it for a hundred dollars less than what I would've paid for a brand new one. This unit is going into a rack and no one will ever see this "blemish" anyway, I lovez zounds.This thing is quality! The knobs feel solid and have a nice resistance to them. I think my favorite feature about this interface is the front LED signal monitor display. It has a signal monitor for inputs 1-8 and for the L/R (Stereo Out). The stereo out led's make it so convenient to adjust your input signals accordingly. I mean mostly when you're listening to music or watching youtube videos, a read more ton of people upload/ create videos and songs with a peaking signal and when I see those led's hitting the red I know to turn down the input volume.
