i have alsis io2 express but i needed more inputs and wasn't happy with the latency performance
so I've been making choice between focusrite scarlett 6i6 and steinberg ur242.
I went with scarlett as it has decent reviews for its audio quality. but after a day of testing i was totally upset. a lot of buzz and noise probably caused by the ground loops or whatever. once I have connected active monitors the noise level coming from the input was unacceptable.
so i sent it back and took ur242. additionally i have read a lots of similar complaints regarding the noise.
the ur242 is something completelly different. the D/A has very very nice sound and is totally clean. i had tried the inputs and the were no issues with the noise or ground loop. i'm using the same cables. latency is awesome and audio quality as well. fully reccommended over scarlett anytime! and the price is lower too :) on top of that you'll get the latest cubase AI which is also nice piece of software.

update:
after I have post this review I have realized that this box has a VERY nice feature. Yes, it has DSP which is not new to me. You may add a reverb and one of the 4 guitar amp models (each one can be tweaked) per channel. That was something I ignored that and did not intent to use as I have everything in my Cubase. BUT - you can use the preset even your computer is shut down. That's really awesome if just want to quicly grab and play guitar without making noise during the night hours using a proper guitar amp. just power the UR242, plug the guitar in, put headphones on, or turn on monitors. I really love that feature. The amps do not sound awesome, especially on higher gain, but cleans and crunch is just ... ok for some practicing.

I needed interface to replace my old M-Audio FastTrack mk2.
I was looking for something with Hi-Z input, MIDI in-out, phantom power & Line-in to get signal from my mixer to PC.
Steinberg UR242 was the best offer at that moment + it was new.
I bought it and it became heart of my home studio setup.
Build quality is amazing - built like a tank. Knobs, buttons, ports - everything is well-built.
Latency is minimal, inputs are not noisy. Cool built-in effects & monitoring possibilities.
I have recording guitars, synths, vocals - everything sounds like it should sound.

First thing that is not that great - Hi-Z input. I would advice to get DI-BOX for guitar recording, because native Hi-Z input sounds muddy every time on any guitar.

Second thing - headphone output is not independent. It has same signal that goes to speakers, but with separate volume knob. If you are DJ - this is not what you need, there is no possibility to cue something in headphones.

Coolest thing - you don't need computer to run it. It has its own DSP processor inside & it could be configured once using software & used like independent mixer without computer.
