    does it need XLRs as in preamps? or does it just need balanced input?

    I just need balanced inputs, I don't like going from xlr to 1/4 in.

    I was looking at a Flying Cow a little while ago. I ended up choosing an RME ADI-2. Much better stuff than M-Audio, I think I bought it used for about $500 on Ebay. It's a great unit with 192 K sampling rates. I also believe the Flying Cow uses 16 Bit whereas the RME uses 24 bit. Plus it uses Balanced in and outs. Good Luck and I hope this helps.

    The flying cow is 24 bit. But the converters on the RME are much better. I believe the flying cow converters are the same spec as one of the Roland VS units. They're good but for an extra $200 or so the RME are worth it.
