FIREFACE 800 OR MOTU TRAVELER ???

Hi Guys,

Last time when I have askes You guys for advice on preamps I bought a Great River and was absolutely amazed by it. Now I got the preamp figured out, but a firewire interface is coming to my studio and I cant make up my mind. Help please !!!

I was looking on the Fireface 800 as I heard it has some nice converters and that's what I am buying it mainly for ( dont expect me to use those Fireface amps since I gor GR ;-) I just want a good ad/da conversion and the RME legendary stability is the issue also. I dont really need the portability of Motu (it can po powere directly form the firewire bus) and the metering on it is also not a big issue.

On the other hand- Motu is a lot cheaper, and i am not shure if both units differ in sound that much (I made some test today in a friendly studio)


Any suggestions? Thoughts?

Would appreciate any input.

Cheers

Marty

P.S I use Nuendo with Reason Rewired on a desktop Pc (Win XP) plus Virus C via Midi . I will also use this setup on a PC laptop that I will buy soon (any suggestions about that? what laptop works with the Fireface 800?)

I think if you have the coin, then the rme is your best bet. I personally have a Motu 896hd and really like it and it's rocksolid for me on PC. The fireface 800 was not available when i was shopping for an interface.

Yeah- the more posts I read the more I am willing to go for the RME. Is that illegal ? ;-)

Cheers
