I have one and love it.

If you go that route, make sure you have a reference room or two that will let you run the unit there to capture your personal HRTF and calibrate your headphones. That IMHO is the real strength of this unit. You'll also want a pair of very accurate headphones (Stax, HD800, etc).

I used the A8 to capture my old 5.1 studio. When we did A/B tests between the cans and the mains it was uncanny how close it was (the main difference being the very lowest frequencies). The A16 is a step up from there, with improved algorithms and support for 16 channels (Atmos/Auro/DTS, anyone?)
