    I have an M-Audio 1814 but do have the opportunity to upgrade to an RME Fireface 800. Any thoughts on this? In the past I've had PCI cards from M-Audio and RME and liked the RME's (DIGI96/8 PST) analog outputs much better, though it looks like the 1814 has improved from older products. I'm really interested in the quality of the converters on the RME.

    The RME Fireface 800 is by far the best firewire audio interface ever made.

    Not only the AD/DA conversion is pristine due to RME's steady clock technology and very high quality converters and filters but the preamps are of excellent quality too.

    Can't go wrong!

    Thanks -- made the switch, feels more like my existing rack stuff, so I think it will feel at home :). Already have a DIGI96/8 PST, which I always thought sounded great, so could probably use them together somehow. Some have been complaining about the lack of inserts on the mic preamps, though I think I can work around that.
