So Good 1.65ms latency for this money

AINU, 11.12.2017
Preamps are good / silent gains / . Easy to use . Only one problem is upsampling but sounds good almost perfect if U working on inside driver and fast audio card. Best in class - 4 this money ;-)

The knob takes a little of getting used to, but otherwise this is a fine product for what it is supposed to be doing. I have no problems recording two channels simultaneously through Thunderbolt. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend for your simple home studio.
