USB3(+) Surround Audio Interface (replace the mbox 3 pro)

Hi All,

I currently use an MBox 3 Pro for 5.1 surround monitoring

Looking to replace with a USB 3 (not thunderbolt) alternative.

The Pre Sonus 1810c is definitely the front runner.

I can't tell if the Zoom UAC-8 would do the job.

Are there any other similar beasts? It seems like there should be more on the market than there are.

Cheers

It looks like the UAC-8 would be capable of 5.1 monitoring just fine. I'm not sure about those mic pres... it's something to consider if you're wanting to do recording as well.

Thanks for the suggestions
Mic pre quality not really an issue.
RMEs are USB 2.0 and more expensive. Is there any reason why I should go with them anyway?

There's a good chance the RME drivers are more reliable. Get what you can afford and move up when you're ready.
