But again, you would only be saving say US$150 for example for a Focusrite 2i2 interface at the low end... so farnarkling around a lot here is a waste of time and effort. And the Focusrite will sound better. We don't have any idea if that will be enough interface for your needs... because you've not been clear on what those really are (how simultaneous performers? mic preamps, DI in, line in, ADAT in/out, AES/EBU In/out, line outputs (separate performed cue mix needed?), monitor control features, headphone outputs, direct monitoring features, etc. we can't even guess based on the Mbox... because we don't know the model.)?
The system I bought in 2003/4 was a "Mbox Version 6.4 for LE Systems on Windows XP and Mac OSX"

It's a dinosaur that I used quite often until my PC running XP decided to quit. It has been sitting in storage for about 8 years.
