Upgrading converters for home studio

Tired of having this focusrite scarlett at the center of my rig. What options are there for my 2 channel home studio converter wise? Would like to keep it in the 3k range cost wise

opinions differ a lot, but, i have a crane song solaris. I wouldn’t mind using a scarlet as well instead. Only thing I can recommend is using one with its own power supply. Perhaps built in dsp for room correction? most DA convertors are really good enough.

Merging Anubis is off the charts good.

Are you looking for an audio interface upgrade (preamps, converters, HP amp, interface to computer) or are you asking for suggestions on external gear (preamps, adc, dac, HP amp) or some combination?

I can recommend Merging Anubis Pro. If you are sure of 2 mic pres and total of 4 line ins and 4 outputs + 2 separate headphone outs are enough for you.

You can expand I/O into eternity but it will cost you.

But if it’s just about conversion and a couple of I/O,
Nothing beats this quality for this price.

I have one from the first ever batch that came out. It’s FANTASTIC. Not a pro-sumer level device. Proper Hi-end. Proper.

all of you extolling the Anubis Pro-

what type of music are you recording? Is it good for just plain old rock?

I have had converters in the past that were too something for dumb rock....

Well. It’s clean as it gets. It’s a device that tries not to color things.

couldn't disagree more: another set of overly bright mic pres/ad-converters - a character which plagues so many modern interfaces! besides, merging hasn't been very good at updating/supporting their gear in the long run...

rme rules! (and for the budget the op mentioned, he could get an interface with far more i/o's and with additional stand-alone recording capability!)
