Hi. Great forum! I have a question, TIA for any help/advice... Situation: Currently I am running studioflex balanced XLR-1/4" cables from my Onyx 1220 mixer into the audio inputs of an Emu 1212m. And then balanced 1/4"-XLR studio flex cables from the Emu 1212m audio outputs to a pair of Event TR8 active monitors. I have an opportunity to buy the firewire I/O add-on for my Onyx 1220 mixer and eliminate the Emu. My question is whether or not I will experience a boost in quality? Is it worth the $500 (CAN) to go with the firewire I/O or will I just end up with the same level of quality I have now? I realize this isn't pro gear but I didn't see anywhere else to post this question so I thought I'd use this forum. Thanks very much for any help.
