Scarlett 8I6, a step up from Firepod?

I've been looking for something with better pres and conversion than my old Firepod, preferably USB. I only need one channel.

The Focusrite Scarlett 8I6 seems like it would be a cheap option. I'll be recording di guitars, bass and vocals with it.

I'm just not sure if it's actually a big enough step up from the Firepod?

I personally own a Firepod and have loved it for the last 6 years...It was such a good value and I still say it holds up against any unit in the sub $600 range...I've heard others, M-Audio, Focusrtie Saffire Pro 40, personally these all sound similar to me. If you only need one channel maybe Apogee might have something like the UNO that would be a real step up in A/D conversion. I've heard great things.

Hmm, never heard of the UNO. But Apogee makes only interfaces for mac, right? I'm using PC.
