I expect that I will be happy as long as I own it.

The sound is top notch for a $500.00 interface. The solid state pre's sound great. I don't understand all the bad reviews, those customers obviously do not know what the audio game is all about. I have several solid state outboard pre's that cost thousands of dollars and the profire 610 pre's are definitly in the same ball park. Obviously they aren't warm and colored in the same way as a tube pre, but they are not harsh like the majority of solid state pre's built into interfaces of a lesser grade. And so it has plastic knobs so does my $2,000.00 digi 003 who cares, I didn't buy the interface for the knobs, I bought it for the pre's and the a/d converters.

The 8 line out's are fantastic, it allows me to process through my outboard eq's and comp's and not bog my IMAC down with plug ins. And whoever said the profire doesn't work with IMACS is dead wrong! I have used mine with my IMAC and have never had any problems. I have also used the profire with a dell on win xp/and win 7 and still never had I had any problems with it. Knowing what your doing is half the battle folks!

Ease of Use
It was easy to understand and use. Yeah it's probably not easy for the absolute novice just getting started but you learn these things.

The best it can be for it's price, if you read more want non plastic knobs go spend 2,000.00 on an apogee duet or something that doesn't have plastic knobs.

It's a great value for the money and it's an interface that performs like an interface twice the cost.
