My Mr816csx just came in the mail... This is the best buy I have ever made! jeeze!!!!!! exactly what I was looking for... Probably gonna get another one. instead of a mixer... I would be running adat right, because I heard Direct Monitoring is f'ed up.
Note, right off the bat I noticed that the DAC < Duet 2.... but for all the other features, Id rather have this, even this over quartet, because of the features. Iv never heard the DAC in ensemble
Sadly I can't comment on a direct comparison......BUT I actually picked up a MR816csx the other day, and DAMN this thing sounds great compared to my Presonus FP10. I compared the FP10 to and MBox 2 back in the day and the Presonus blew that away....Now the MR816csx blows away that bland FP10.
Steinberg really did a great job with these interfaces!!
Yeah and you can get awesome deals too. I picked up mine brand new, never been used in box and warranty with shipping included for 600$ flat. I wonder if you can hook up the UR824 to the Mr816. The ADC is awesome! I actually like it better than my Duet, the duet had this brittle sounding Highs i didn't like... it wasn't lifeless like Motu, but it annoyed me. This one got balls.
