Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Pros: Power button on the front +48V inputs on the front which can also take 1/4" plugs MIDI IN & OUT Can be powered by PC FireWire (6-pin only) instead of 12v adapter Cons: ONly SPDIF is stereo output, and there is only coaxial in/out, no digital The rest of the outputs are MONO channels
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Pretty straightforward, installing driver wasn't difficult either.
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
I think so, just be aware of the feature cons before buying it. If you're hooking this up to monitors it shouldn't be a problem, but if you're running it to another soundcard or a receiver, make sure you plan that first.
