I have been using the MOTU 8 PRE for some recordings, as audio interface for my computer. It was very stable thanks to the good MOTU drivers and the overall quality of the gear was good. The plus points were the easy setup, the very easy installation of the software and the solid build of the chassis. On top of that the quality of the converter is good as well. The minus points are the preamps, in my opinion you can get much better ones by looking around, but for the price it's a very good unit and for sure it can make very nice recordings.
One other good thing is the possibility of expanding it digitally with the ADAT toslink ports, I think it's the only one unit at that price which offers 2 inputs to work at 8ch @ 96kHz (SMUX)

Great Value with very pleasant sound

I bought one of these for a location recording rig.

We connect it to our MOTU 828 via ADAT and all syncs very easily.

The sound quality is very high and reminds me of other MOTU gear in that it has a nice warm but still detailed sound. There is warmth and clarity without the harshness that I have heard in some other cheaper preamps/converters.

Comparing this with the RME Octamic we use in our studio, the Motu stands up extremely well and I would have not problem using this place of the excellent Octacmic.

The build quality is very good, the only weak point being the gain knobs are not as robust as the RME.
