Love it... you should get one. I too have an MOTU 828, which has an excellent io count, but horrible windows support, and I now rarely ever use it - probably going off to auction soon to be replaced with a Firebox. It has lower latency than the MOTU 828, as well as MUCH better mixer/routing options - MUCH BETTER. It even comes with Cubase LE, which is great if you are starting out or wanting to upgrade to Cubase SE or SL on the cheap.

I'm giving it a 9 rather than 10, however, solely because it's advertised as a 6 in/10 out mixer. That's only true if you count the digital IO AND the headphone out. In my configuration it's a 4 in/8 out... a small gripe, and I knew it when I bought it and bought it anyway. As far as usability is concerned I love everything about it and will definitely buy other Presonus products.

I feel so lucky to give the first review on this Firebox. Well, it's awesome. I just bought a motu 828 and it doesn't even come close (and will be sent back tomorrow). It seems presonus really cares about their products unlike some of the other larger audio companies. You can tell this by the packaging and build quality. The firmware isn't perfect in the firebox but it's pretty good. The sound quality is superb. It reminds me of my old RME digi PST. Sound is very detailed and sizzly. If something isn't right, you will hear it if you have the right monitors.

Conclusion: if you are audiophile on a budget, then Firebox is where it's at. Thanks presonus.
