Mbox 3 refuse criticism

Just wanted everybody to know here that I went to this great page digidesign setup :

and posted my opinion which to make it short is :
Well result greatly depends on what gear you use to listen to this test
if you use a cheap audio soundcard will you ever hear the differences ?

They never published this

I own an Orpheus which is really really great and had an Mbox2 which was really nothing special ...

Well it's a great idea to put a test online but if you just publish kuddos then just make it private and don't pretend to take feedback from your valued customers (how many digidesign stuff I have ? well too much)

It's business,the price range of that mbox unit is not marketed for high end.

It's a quick fix for those with small setups.

Hmm - they usually have a much thicker skin about things like that.

I have the new mBox 3 Pro after having had an 001 and and 002R. Marked improved difference, comparing all three through:
Event Electronics Tuned Reference 6" nearfield monitors
AKG 240M
AKG K271

Worth checking out if you're in the need of upgrading. Whole new deal from the old mBox 2. And with the new drivers, you can use it seamlessly with apps other than Pro Tools.
