Default Mbox Pro (3rd Gen) Discontinued?

So I might get bashed asking this but... Has the Mbox Pro (3rd Gen) interface been discontinued? Because I cannot find it at some of the bigger musical we sites like Sweet water and Guitar Senter. A simple yes or no would be fine...

I'm not sure. It's not listed under Avid's "Audio (DAW) section of their new site. But the drivers were updated Jan 14th this year.

I wish there was some kind of upgrade path to the Quartet for us Mbox 3 Pro owners (even if it was just for the hardware.) Just looking at the specs it seems as if the Quartet crushes the Mbox. Come upgrade time I know I'm either going Quartet, Apollo or one of those new Focusrite boxes I've been hearing so much about

I am an Apollo nut however we just ordered a Focusrite 4Pre X and can't wait to hook it up with one of our HD setups. It sounds extremley great although pricey.

I would send you to the Clarett Series. You get a LOT for the price and those boxes sounds awesome for that money. Not much can beat the Clarett for under 1500 dollars. Just an idea and i am sure you will love that box. Same preamps and internals in all of the Clarett series so look at them if you want a really good new product for much less than the Quartet.
