Default Re: MBox Preamps

The original mBox used Focusrite preamps that were designed specifically for the unit.

All of the new mBoxes (mBox2, mBox2 Pro, mBox mini) have preamps designed and made by Digidesign in them.

"Better" is subjective. I used to own and original mBox, and now own a mini, and I think the Digidesign preamp is better than the old Focusrite one. That's just my opinion, though, and everyone has differing ones.
