    Hi All

    Need help on selecting one of these. Would appreciate reviews from any one who has or currently using any one of them.

    thanks!!
     
  2. 1814 Hands down. You can use M-Powered with it, not to mention expendability via lightpipe. I currently own an M-Box 2 and a Projectmix I/O (which from what I understand is exactly the same thing as the 1814 as far as audio goes) and the pre's on the Projectmix are noticeably cleaner than the M-Box 2 pre's. The M-Box pre's are extremely noisy imho, and are only useable in a small range of gain between when they become unbearably noisy and where the signal has a practical amount of gain. Not to mention the latency on the M-Box is huge. Like over 70ms I think, but don't quote me on that.

    I am so done with Digidesign.

    1814 all the way!!! I'm already using it with octane preamp and it's a cool setup for the price!! P.S. Have a good firewire interface card will help avoiding problem...
