Hi All, I'm looking into getting a firewire audio interface for a recording a few tracks of bass, guitars and vocals. So far I've narrowed it down to one of the following: Presonus Firebox M-audio Firewire 410 - (There seem to be some OS x driver issues with this I think). Edirol FA-66 Echo Audiofire 4 These all seem to go for around £180 - £200 in the UK. Haven't decided which yet, and I'm still open to other suggestions - I use a Mac btw. I also need to get a headphone amp for late night bass practice, and I'm wondering if any of the above mentioned devices will function decently as a standalone headphone amp, specifically when not connected to a computer. Anyone else do this? How well does it work? My bass stack will live in a different room to my computer most of the time, so I want to know if this will work - I would probably connect the DI out from my bass head into the interface, just as I would when recording. I was thinking of getting a Cafe Walter headphone amp just for practice purposes but it seems a waste if my firewire interface / preamp would do the same job. To get one of these shipped over from the US would run me about £120 I think, so I'd be happy to hear that one of these firewire interfaces can do double duty for me.
