    Default presonus firebox

    im on the verge of picking up a vci 100 and so will need a soundcard. is the firebox (Which seems to be THE soundcard around here) a good price at 180?

    cheers

    As an owner of a firebox I would look at a USB card for the following reasons:
    1) The new macbooks don't have firewire or a PCMCIA express card (not a mac guy but this is a concern when the "industry standard" no longer supports your hardware)
    2) Not all firewire is created equal, some notebooks can't run the firebox. You need a pcmcia express card. Another $50 bucks

    I was at my local guitar center and they had demo firebox's for $70 so don't overpay. I would look at the Audio 4 and Audio 8 from native instruments or the maya 44.

    he is right in saying you should do your homework before being a firebox, but if it works with your computer, i highly recommend it if it has the ins and outs you need.

    charo is right, do your homework and if the Firebox works out it is the best soundcard in its price bracket.
