So far I'm impressed and finding it very useful for my workflow as well as an improvement in tonal quality.
Glad to hear that. Since buying it 3 months ago I've only become more impressed. One main observation is that it sounds better digitally than via its analog outs, and by a large degree (to my ears). I've read that some prefer the "warmth" of the analog outs but what that seems to be is a lack of high end and detail. A softness. A less pristine sound. What sucks about this is that the OX only spits out 44.1 KHz, so if you work at a different SR (as I do; 48K) then you have to convert it on the fly.
