Thanks, man. I'll keep that in mind.
Now, a couple of really basic questions (I could get these answered through a sales rep but I hate getting a "Yes" response to every question, regardless of what's really going on). The Apollo is referred to as an "interface". In the set-up I have at home, my current converters have to go through the AES input on my Lynx in order to hit my PC. Does the Apollo hook up directly to the computer with no need for another soundcard/interface?
Also, regarding PC support, it says "Windows 7 support coming this Summer". Does it currently work with a PC at all? I have been using XP still because, honestly, I like it's stability and compatibility. Will the Apollo be Win7-only? It's not a deal-breaker, but it's something that I'd have to prepare for.
