Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 (2nd gen) vs Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL

Hello all,
I've a little audio interface from presonus but now I need more outputs and I'm thinking about buying one of those two interfaces, some of you have maybe tried one or even both?

What can you tell me about the sound, the latency, the driver, the software...
I'm on PC with ableton Live and I'll use it in the studio and on stage.

Thanks for your time.

The focusrite does sound good.

Note that you cannot use the ad at in, ans spdif input at the same time.

I can't tell you about latency, as I always direct monitor using the mix control software.

As far as latency it's less than 2 ms @ 32. I can track with reverb no problem
