Default Seeking hardware recommendations

Hello,

I've been using an older Mac Pro (vintage 2010 w/two CPU's) with a MOTU 2408 interface which requires a PCIe slot and only has quarter inch inputs. I am thinking of doing an upgrade to both the Mac Pro trashcan model to get Thunderbolt and go with a different interface that is USB vs. Firewire.

Now that Apple has updated the Mac Pro, I'm hoping that the prior model will drop in price and I am looking for recommendations on the best interface that provides both quarter inch and XLR inputs.

Thanks for any advice.

Since you're looking at thunderbolt, why not check out the Focusrite Clarett range?
