my motu 828 just died, need suggestions

i've had this thing for a long time, it's worked hard for me.. but i need a new interface.. i really only need two channels, but would like the best possible a/d conversion for the money.. any ideas before i go buy another, i'm using an old mac (g4 don't laugh) and digital performer, would switch to pro tools if it was a better value (mbox or digi 002?) but i think their converters suck

if you were happy before, find a replacement of the same unit used for pennies on the dollar, or do the same with the "mk II" version of the 828.

that'll make it an easy swap-out without any unnecessary hassles or undue downtime.

Do yourself a favor and upgrade. I had one of those for a while, I wasn't a fan. (I think it was the 2nd to worst interface I've owned, the Mbox 1 being the worst).

Maybe the RME Fireface 400 would be good. Or the Metric Halo 2 channel one. Or if you can swing it, an apogee ensemble.

Fwiw, the 828 MK2 sounds about 4xs as good as the original, but still not good.
