Default The New Mbox 3 or M Audio ProFire 2626

I'm looking at buying a new audio interface and was looking at the new Mbox 3 and the ProFire 2626. Has anyone had any bad experiences with either and does anyone suggest one over the other, if so, why?

Assuming you mean the Mbox 3 PRO version, ProFire 2626 will allow for a lot more IO(the cheaper Mbox 3 has even less IO than the PRO). You start with 8 mic preamps. Then you can add 8 more via the lightpipe input(where another 2626 could be patched). I have nothing bad to say about either device. The Mbox 3 Pro is a brand new box and there are not a lot of reviews for it, while the 2626 has found a ton of fans(I have yet to read a bad review of it from anyone). Also, go check out the product page at M-Audio.com as you may be able to attach a 3rd lightpipe preamp for 24 mic inputs(with PT9, that would make a nice recording rig for live bands).
