Do yourself a favour spend $500 on the HD 8x8x8 or $1000 on the HD16x16 . They are great. Unless you will never need the expanded i/o. To me it seems like a lot of money not to have any upgrade possibilities . It will cost $4 to $5000 later on if your needs change and they always do , for me anyways

TB is quite a ways off and if they do come up with something I'll sure there will be some sort of adapter/upgrade thing. I do know they are working to create a TB PCI-e 3 card box, but frankly you wouldn't need that until Mac Pro's are a thing of the past.

You're gonna love the Omni. Smooth beautiful sound. Noisy little unit though so hopefully you have a iso box or a machine room.

Noisy even with the firmware updates?

Im waiting for mine. Iv got a small one room home studio.
I hope i can track beside it. Worst case senario i have to pace it
in the nextdoor room, but that would be a shame.

Then there sould be an remote for it.

Thank you for your input guys!

I hear different things about the noise-level(omni).

Can anyone with the latest firmware-update confirm that the unit is silent?

Iv ordered Omni+Native and hopefully it should be here today or just over the weekend. I will give feedback about the Omni fan as soon as I get to use it.

Make sure you do do that firmware update after that it was just fine noise wise but before was another story.
