the best hi-fi possible laptop rig?

ive got apogee AD16x and DA16 and protools 8 HD with a mac pro.

im hitting the road and need a laptop rig to supplement for overdubs.

what 2 channel converters are out there for a mobile solution that compete with the AD16x's ?

i figure i'll upgrade to PT 9 HD and work off my macbook pro.

is a duet the best option?? i'll be taking a pair of pre's so im mostly concerned with converters.

thnx!

If two channels is what you need for a mobile solution, yeah, cannot go wrong with a Duet - probably the closest sonic match to the AD16x imo. No WC I/O but that should not be a consideration for this application.

How would the duet stack up against the RME Babyface?

The Metric Halo ULN-2 provides two pretty awesome channels of pre and conversion - the pre's are good enough that you might be able to reconsider having to schlep a separate box. Do a search here; you'll find lots of love. And the form factor is a perfect match for the 15-inch MacBook Pro!
