Default Eleven Rack as mixing interface?

I know this isn't the Eleven forum, but I thought it was the best place to ask my questions.

I'm a guitarist and mix engineer. I've been doing my mix work on a 002r for the last several years, and I'd like to upgrade a bit, but I have a pretty limited budget. I'm working on PT9, and would like to end up with PT11. I track a lot of guitars at home, and have used the Eleven plug in a lot, and it's been very helpful. I've tried the Eleven Rack for guitar, and it works well for several things that would help me, including tracking guitars at home, and reamping for mix projects. My question is this...

What are people's opinions about using the Eleven Rack as an interface for mixing? Do any users here feel it would compare favorably to an MBox 3 Pro, or a 003r? It has sufficient inputs for what I need at home. I've read that the convertors themselves are the same as in the MBox 3 Pro, but of course convertors are only part of the story in an interface. Any opinions would be much appreciated. I thought if it was a solid interface that sounded good, I'd use it with some kind of passive monitor box ala Central Station.

I'll likely post this in the Eleven forum as well, but in looking around, it seems like the bulk of the discussion there revolves around Eleven Rack's guitar functionality.

Thanks!

Stephen

Personally, although I have not USED the 11R, i have seen it in action and I see nothing wrong with it as an interface, other than the limited IO. If it serves your needs in that department, I expect it to work fine.

Eleven Rack is just fine for home studio recording. I have one on a separate workstation as a stand alone interface for Pro Tools 10; works great.
