http://global.focusrite.com/usb-audio-interfaces/scarlett-studio the combo looks pretty affordable really! i wanted to get the 2i2 interface alone but this is very tempting. Although i dont really foresee ever needing a mic right now but if this is half as nice as it promises to be i wont mind having another pair for reference headphones and a condenser mic! so i am sure about the interface, i've used it and the preamps on it are great for the money. no experience or user reviews on the cm25 mic and the hp60 headphones though..
