Just completed the setup. It was pretty simple. The difference in sound reproduction is pretty good, but what I love about it is the cleanness of the signal. The only word I can think of is pristine. Just that alone is a huge step up from the internal sound card in my computer. Not sure I will like Cubase. I'm used to Cakewalk and Reaper. Compared to them, it's ease of use is not even close. For me anyway, there is nothing intuitive about it. But I love the Pantheon Reverb , and I'm going to play around with it for a bit and see how we get along. Overall, I'm pretty pumped. I think my music is going to take a big step up in terms of sound quality. Many thanks to those here who advised through an earlier thread. Much appreciated.
