    hey, I recently have been looking to upgrade my converter. i currently have a motu 2408mk3. talking to the great guys at sweet water they have suggested 3 cards to me. the Apogee rosetta 800, the Mackie Onyx 1200f, and the Motu 192hd. all are within my budget but i dont know the best to go for. I mostly Record Metal, and rap(bleh). i have a presonus digimax96k preamp and great river 1nv.

    From what i've read the mackie onyx 1200f comes packed with extra things for its price and seems very appitizing

    The motu Hd 192 seems to be a pretty solid card from what i've read

    the apogee rosetta 800 i have heard some diffrent things about, which is strange because of it's big reputation

    My main intrest in these is the converter quality, seeing all the extra's in the mackie onyx make me wonder if they skimped on the converter quality.

    anyone have any experience with these? what do you guys think my best choice is?

    thanks alot

    I have been using the Motu HD 192 for about 2 years now, and love it. The price is right for what it offers, and has the features that i need. The drivers for Windows gave me headaches, but since switching to OSX 4 months after i got it ive had No problems.

    Worth Checking into IMO.
