Excellent Interface.

08.11.2016
I currently use the interface in my home studio set up. I have experience with the RME Fireface, Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, Focusrite Saphire 20, and AU Apollo Twin. The Claret Surpasses them all by a long shot. The audio quality and low latency rate create a product which is professional and useable. Exactly what I need for the way I run my home studio.

Pros:
Low Latency: Making it so easy to use live, or if I want to put in effects on my DAW and you can hear the results in real time.
The "Air" option: Sounds excellent for vocals.
True Phantom Power: No power peaks or falls, it is actually at 48V and works well. I have had issues with other interfaces.
Multiple monitor outs: I have a Pair of Yamaha HS7's and a pair of Rokit RP4's, I can just switch between them on the software, and it makes mixing so much more efficient.
The easy to use software: Unlike the devil that came with the Sapphire: this works seamlessly with the interface.
Optical Input: I have the old Octopre and will be buying the new one, this allows me to do drum takes on such a small interface which if I desire I can take in my bag wherever I go.

Cons:
The knobs feel a little cheap. However this is not an issue, I am glad that they have invested in the rest of the product.

All in All, the Claret two pre is the best interface for my needs.

Initially problems

Ulli J., 21.02.2016
The interface had problems with Logic X.
After standby or hibernation, it was no longer found. Sometimes it was also "simply so" rausgeschmissen from the DAW. Since the contact with the support and a new B version runs everything.
Sound, Latenz alles Prima.
Too bad that it needs an extra power supply.
Update:
Unfortunately the Clarett 2pre does not work with the new iMac retina. The support can not help either. The problem has been known for 5 months.
