Getting a new interface.. Thinking of going firewire.

My Emu 0404 usb has been giving me nothing but problems lately. Most annoyingly it makes my Windows 7 setup crash to a BSOD every now and again, as well as being having usb ground problems (noisy when hooked up to my external HP amp)... However great audio when it is working right !

I am interested in the focusrite pro 14 and 24, having used some of focusrite products briefly in a studio I worked in. Just looking for a heads up on how good their drivers are for windows 7? and also on how the 14 and 24 compare (and 0404 for that matter).

Any help appreciated, cheers.

Anyone own the focusrite pro 14 or 24?

I am working with Saffire Pro 26 and 40. The 24 and 14 versions are the same but with less I/O options. This is really great product range. Great converters and clean preamps. No problem s at all, maybe little with FW connection on PC, you must have a good FW card with TI, VIA or NEC chipset. I recommend SIIG or Belkin manufacturer.

Thanks for the reply. Have you ever tried the 24 DSP, I am wondering if the VRM chip is worth it..
