I was prepared to purchase the Firepod, when an employee at SamAsh tried to talk me into the M-Audio. (Dead Link Removed) If anyone has had experience with either interface, are the M-Audio pre-amps significantly better than the Firepod? On almost every Firepod review I've heard something about deficiencies with the preamps. If anyone has a firepod, could you please elaborate if you share this same opinion? And one last important note: Does anybody know about the support on a machine running 64-bit Windows Vista? Thanks in advance to anyone who responds to this.
