Focusrite Scarlett 3rd gen vs. Clarett

Hey folks,

I'm looking to get an 8 preamp USB interface and narrowed it down to the Focusrite Clarett 8pre USB....... before the Scarlett 3rd gen arrived and ruined my fragile, loosely researched decision.

Has anybody seen a video shootout, or has links to an audio shootout between the two?

I've had the Clarett 8pre USB since last Nov. For your info; I've never used the AD side of it but I've got a Lynx Hilo and to me the Clarett's DA is very close to the Hilo's. The Hilo is better but not by that much seeing the price difference between the two. I use the Hilo for AD and mix/mastering. I'm well impressed with the Clarett and it was very easy to install and setup (I use Reaper). No problems at all.

Hope that helps a bit.

Yeah thanks I appreciate it, and that seems like a ringing endorsement if its in any way near comparable to the Hilo! I hadn't actually been expecting anything of any great quality from the DA at this price-point so that's a real bonus
