I know the Firepod is a few years old now, but I have a chance to pick one up used for a good price. How does it stack up to newer interfaces (lets say ~$300)?
I don't need 8 preamps, but at the price I can get it at it seems like a steal. I was considering the audiofire 4 before coming across this deal.
They are good units 8 preamps 26 x 26 in/out never have had any problems with them. Some have complained about driver isssues but that was a while ago. I don't think the market has changed significantly, not enough to make this obsolete or anywhere near it. Not familiatr with the other piece you were considering so I can't compare the two.
