Default How good are the RME Fireface 400 preamps?

Not strictly a PT question, I know, but I will be using the unit in conjunction with my DIGI002 Rack, so it's related!

As the subject suggests, I'd like to know the quality of the preamps on the Fireface 400. I'm aware that they're good, but I'm wondering whether to get rid of a couple of Focusrite preamps I have because they might not be as good?

I have the following:

Platinum Trak Master (not the pro)
Platinum Voice Master (not the pro)

Any thoughts and comments would be much appreciated!

Since the focusrite pieces you listed are from the Platinum series, I suspect the RME preamps are better. I haven't heard them but they get great reviews, while the platinum stuff is generally considered cheap. The focurite ISA line is another animal and are very high quality(but a lot more expensive).
