Default New PreSonus 26C versus MBox Gen 3

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro/PT 2020.3 I decided to retire my MBox 3, which is quickly approaching EOL. There were also some things about it I never liked, so it's been on my mind for a while.

I researched what was around in terms of what my needs and budget were and settled on the PreSonus 26C. I use a PreSonus preamp and headphone amp, which I really like, so my assumption was that they'd play nice together.

Here's my question: How much does the interface affect the sound? I swear that I'm hearing greater clarity and detail with the PreSonus than I did with the MBox.

Is this possible? Or am I imagining it since it's new and shiny?
