Mbox 2 or M-Audio 18/14

Hi All

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

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.
