tak ono to nakoniec mozno ani nebude o mikrofonoch a preampoch, ale o DA na mojej zvukovke. podla toho, co som nasiel na Gearslutz a HarmonyCentral forach, su preampy na 400F spolu s AD to najlepsie, co sa momentalne da vo firewire kupit a nahradzat ich niecim do 15000 je blbost. vacsinou boli hodnotene ako velmi ciste, detailne a smooth, co je asi to, co potrebujem.
problem ale je na strane DA, ktore maju zjavny problem s THD, co sa prejavuje tendenciou k ostrosti.

The RME IMO...(I am using the FF800) is not hands down anywhere, but the best 'all around'.
OK I did a test recently here in the studio...with RME Fireface 800, Mackie, MOTU 896HD (which is the closest thing to a traveler I tested) and Tascam FW1804.
The Mackie was from the FW option on the ONYX...but last week I had the Onyx FW400 here for a couple of days to compare it to the FF800.
Mackie..(Onyx FW card and FW400) Ultra clean, very pleasant.
RME next. Clean
Tascam 1804 Clean similar to RME
MOTU 896HD Last.
MOTU...definitely hands down
Mackie FF400 (although this was 'next' in line after the RME, it was a noticable step down.)
Mackie D/A are scooped and REALLY bright. Some top end on recorded vocals or cymbals just hurt the ears...honest.
The MOTU had the worst A/D (but usuable if not a little smeary) But the most pleasant and clear D/A
RME is solid....clean AD and D/A and I really wanted the best of both worlds..(needed actually) without dumping a ton more into external converters.
ONYX the best without question IMO
Those were my opinion and observations. I had the Interfaces here for a week both tracking and mixing. Your milieage WILL vary.
