"Excellent preamps, outdated drivers ..."
Sound: Excellent preamps, sounds better than the newer Saffire series. Less noisy. Feature: 26 inputs, 26 outputs, MIDI in / out, word clock in / out, stand-alone mode, S / PDIF in / out, ADAT in / out, HPF per channel, 2 instrument low Z inputs, phase turn, 2 headphones out, 24bit 192kHz resolution! Ease of Use: This works correctly only with old mac osx for me. Snow Leopard is the best for it. Quality: Very good Value: Today, very cheap. Excellent deal. Manufacturer Support: No longer supported. Overall: Very good sounding interface. I use two of these. So I have 52 inputs and 52 outputs at the same time!
