https://motu.com/en-us/products/m-series/m2/ Ive attached the conversion spec. This might be the scarlett killer! For the cost of a scarlett 2i2 the M2 is spec'd much closer to a clarett. The m2 is about 1/3 the cost of clarett. It exceeds clarrett's DA dynamic range by 1-2 db, depending on the model, and Scarlett by 12db! On the AD side M2 falls 3-4 db short of clarett, and beats scarlett by 3-4db. Latency specs are similar with m2 quoted at 2.5 ms with a 32 sample buffer at 96k. This is really really good specs for an entry level device. Ive personally had no issues with motu's stability from a hardware or software perspective. I think this is going to make a great first interface for beginner's and a nice little portable unit for anyone.
