    I have this setup.

    Athlon 64 3.0 GHz
    ASUS A8N-E Motherboard 2x 1GB DDR Corsair 667
    80 GB SATA
    80 GB SATA
    160 GB SATA

    2x Delta 1010LT

    Mackie 1202 VLZ
    2x VTB-1
    Old Peavey SRC 1604 mixing board.

    I want to upgrade to:
    MOTU 2408 mk3-----------------1200 (used, maybe I can get a better price)
    Focusrite Octopre----------------1195
    ADAT expansion card----------- 320
    TOTAL U$S 2715 (U$S 2500is my initial budget)

    What do you think about this upgrade? These are the prices in my country, maybe you think there are some components in this price range that may sound better. The most important upgrade for me is the interface. I want to know if you think the MOTU will do the job for the next years to come even when my gear grows in quality. I know Octopre is not the best thing i can find but I can use the extra channels to clean the overall sound and buy a couplke of real preamp channels (is there any other 8 pre device that gives me ADAT output and has the same or better price? MOTU 8pre maybe? Presonus Digimax?.

    Well, please let me know.

    Than you in advance

    Digimax LT rocks. Has inserts on every channel, ADAT out, all 8 channels are the same, no nonsense buttons or features. I'd use that for the extra channels.
