focusrite saffire pro 24 vs echo audio fire 4 vs presonas firestudio mobile

hello everyone i am debating which audio interface is the best out of these 3 and i would really love some help. this will be my first ever audio interface so i am a noob to this stuff so excuse me. i need to plug a axiom 49 into it and i also need to use a condenser mic for vocals. i am running the latest imac 21.5 with the i3 processor and 4 gb ram, i am also running paralles with windows 7 so it has to run smoothley on both systems. can some one please advise me on which one would suit my needs best, i have done alot of reading but that has just made the decision harder lol. i am swing towards the presonas because from what i can gather it has the best preamps and conversion but i am not sure if this is right please help

Only you can know your needs, but in my opinion, the Focusrite is the better interface out of those 3.

Your needs are your needs. my needs are different form your needs and everyone's needs are different. All 3 will record vocals and all 3 can give you professional quality. I like the Focusrite the best

I think that if you decide to buy Saffire you should go for pro 14 instead of 24, you don't seem to need 16 ins and 8 outs. Actually every one of your cadidates have more I/O you need. Axiom works splendid via usb btw.

Yes that's what I mean. I assume the pre's are the same (both are "award winning" )
