A little sick of the questionable quality of lower end gear. I'm not looking for a major investment but I'm looking for something reliable. I've been considering the A&H Zed R16 or there's also the Fireface. I know that people are quite satisfied with the RME stuff. I'm wondering though about the Zed R16. Anyone using it with Windows 7? Anything else around the $2000 range? Something with at least Two reasonable mic pres? I've thought about the Mackie Onyx 1640i but their quality control always leaves me guessing. Motu maybe? It'll be a couple of months but I'm looking for a good long term investment. PCI would be ideal but Firewire is convenient. Maybe Motu is the way to go? Just shopping out loud here. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
