MTRX is a serious step up!

Oops, I meant Titan. I didn't need all those mic pres offered in the Atlas.

The Titan arrived and is installed and sounding superb. I'm sure there were several strong choices I could have made but this feels like the best for me. The very first recording (a vocal) made my jaw drop. It had that detail and presence I set out to find. Highly recommended.

The added bonus is that the Avid HD, now clocked to the Prism, sounds a bit better, too.

For those following, Black Lion still has not responded to me. I never would have felt good about that upgrade had I gone with it.

I vote for the Metric Halo LIO8 mkIV. A/D quality is almost mind blowing.

8 line ins, 8 sends, 8 analog outs, 8 channels AES

If you need mic preamps get the Metric Halo ULN8 mkIV. Or an LIO8 with 4 preamps.

MH gear has been the "front end" to all my ProTools systems since 2005..

I agree, the Metric Halo line is amazing. But I don't see where the Avid alternatives are really lacking.

I can only speak to the Avid HD vs. Prism Titan but there was an appreciable improvement moving to the latter. More detail and presence. I don't think one is more or less balanced -- both seem to have relatively flat/neutral freq sensitivities -- though something about that added presence adds weight to the sound. And we aren't talking about major differences here. The Avid is very good.
