A focusrite saffire pro 40 with a focusrite octopre mkII would be a decent 16 channel setup for $1K.

Thanks for the reply

Hmmm, what about anything under $2k?

Well, for 2k you could:
max out the saffire range with a saffire 56 and octopre dynamic
M audio profire 2626 + M audio octane.
MOTU 896/828/traveller +Motu 8pre
Presonus firestudio + digimax FS
TC electronic konnekt 48 plus an ADAT expander
and lots more

You could go to a mixer like a Mackie 1640i or A&H Zed R16. That would be pretty sweet. 16 channels plus all the console goodies over firewire.

Do you really need 16 channels of simultaneous recording? If you don't, you could get a ripping 8 channel interface like an Apogee ensemble, Fireface UFX, Fireface 800, Metric Halo 2882, Lynx Aurora (used) or something similar.

They are hard to find but a pair of Panasonic WZ AD96m are pretty hard to beat!

For under $2K you might want to search the A&H ZED R16 thread(s).
