    These were bought around Christmas time, and I'm not really using them anymore. Both are in great working condition.

    Presonus Firebox: Sold Pending Payment

    The FIREBOX is the most powerful 24-bit/96k FireWire recording interface that fits in the palm of your hand. The FIREBOX is a complete 24-Bit/96k personal recording studio combining two high quality PreSonus microphone/instrument preamplifiers, 24-Bit/96k sample rate and Steinberg's Cubase LE 48-track recording software. The FIREBOX is the perfect hardware and software combination for a powerful professional-quality and compact computer-based studio.

    The FIREBOX is the most professional-quality mobile interface in its class delivering the following:

    • Higher-quality analog to digital converters (Dynamic Range 110dB)
    • Class-A microphone preamplifiers - delivers more musical recording
    • Ultra wide frequency response (10 - 50kHz)
    • Road ready rugged build quality - metal chassis


    The FIREBOX has the highest record/playback track count of its size with the ability to record six inputs and playback through ten outputs simultaneously all at pro-quality 24-bit/96kHz. Two ultra-low noise high-headroom microphone/instrument preamplifiers with 48V phantom power are on the front panel for quickly and easily connecting your favorite microphones and instruments. The FIREBOX also includes a high quality stereo headphone output with volume adjustment on the front panel. The headphone output has its own two-channel driver stream which can be used as a separate stereo bus or two-channel output giving you the ability to send a “cue” mix to the headphone output and a main mix to the main output. Two additional balanced TRS line inputs are located on the rear of the FIREBOX along with six balanced TRS line outputs. Two channels of S/PDIF input/output and MIDI input/output are also included via DB9 breakout cable. A software router/mixer is also included for further flexibility and power. The 1/3U-wide metal chassis of the FIREBOX is designed to fit the MAXRACK rack-mounting system from PreSonus and can be racked with the TubePRE, COMP16, EQ3B and HP4 for a neat and compact computer recording system.

    The FIREBOX works with both four and six-pin FireWire (IEEE 1394) connectors and can be powered by either 6-pin FireWire bus power, or powered by an external power transformer.

    The Windows XP and Macintosh compatible FIREBOX comes ready-to-record with Steinberg's Cubase LE 48-track 24-bit/96K recording software, and is also compatible with many popular ASIO/WDM and Core Audio based applications including Logic, Sonar, Audition, Digital Performer and others.

    FREE Software - ProPak Software Suite Including Cubase LE:

    Cubase LE is the new music production software based on award-winning Cubase SX technology featuring 48 audio tracks, VST plug-ins and full VSTi support. Cubase LE combines powerful audio and MIDI recording features with professional editing and effects. Cubase LE and all included plug-ins are compatible with both Mac and PC systems. Also, Cubase LE sessions are completely upward compatible with both Cubase SX and Nuendo. So if you choose to upgrade down the road to Cubase SX or Nuendo, you can seemlessly upgrade all of your existing sessions when you upgrade your software. Cubase LE is the perfect entry into professional recording software giving you the ability to produce professional level recordings right-away, and giving you a system that you can expand into the future!

    DSP Mixer Included:

    The Firebox features a Zero-Latency DSP mixer that allows you to mix all six live inputs with a software output stream, then route that mix to any one of its outputs, as well as assign either that mix or a software output stream to its headphone amplifier. This feature eliminates monitoring through the computer and makes it easy to customize a mix for the artist. It also allows CUEING for DJ’s and live performance where the headphone output can monitor a completely different signal than the MAIN outputs.

    KRK RP6 Powered Studio Monitors: SOLD!!!

    The KRK RokitRP-6 is a biamplified, magnetically shielded 2-way nearfield studio monitor with a custom 6" woofer and 1" soft dome tweeter, powered by well-matched 50-Watt and 18-Watt amplifiers, respectively.

    The cabinet of the RP-6 is designed with radiused edges and porting, minimizing diffraction for fuller sonic detail, improving stereo imaging, and negating port turbulence and other undesirable low end distortion. The cabinet interior is resonance-managed to minimize reflections and standing waves, and thereby increasing clarity and distinction between frequencies.

    The RP-6 is a very cost-effective solution for the project, A/V post, or educational studio market, and serves as the basis for a standard stereo or surround monitoring system.

    • Front panel slotted ports for reduced port turbulence and distortion

    • Custom Signature Yellow Woofers made of woven glass aramid composite for tight, consistent low-end response

    • Resonance management design for enclosure interior minimizes unwanted cabinet vibrations, reflections, and standing waves for improved speaker performance

    • Dedicated 4-position HF level switch and Volume knob for adjusting speaker to acoustic characteristics of room environment

    • Versatile connector complement with XLR, 1/4" TRS balanced and RCA unbalanced inputs

    Note: One speaker has a crack in the FINISH ONLY!! (corner & side) where I dropped my laptop. This doesn't go all the way through, and in no way affects the integrity of the speaker.

    Those are universally reviewed as some of the best monitors in the low priced range (as opposed to cheapies, mid priced and high) in Magazines, on the sites, etc.

    And they're exactly the ones I want to go with my firepod set up... just can't justify doing it right now since my hi-fi set up is filling in okay. But somebody should snap them up.

    Tbone, I think if you let people know how the ding happened, they would probably feel more comfortable springing for them. Looks to me like it would not affect the sound at all.
