Hi, I am new here, I hope I have the right forum for this question. I have been using an Mbox for the past year as a tie over to getting something better. I am now at a toss up between the ULN 2 from Metric Halo, which sounded great and the Apogee Mini Me, more expensive but a lot where I am, but people rave about it. Which one has the better converters - ie which one is going to be a better front end for nearly everything that I record to digital? Speaking purely of the quality of the sound after it has been run through these machines? Is the Apogee worth all the hype or is the ULN2 holding it's ground? I haven't heard the Apogee yet but I wanted to get some opinions on this if possible. Thanks. Micky.
