FireBox vs AudioFire4

I'm looking for an audio interface to be used with a Yamaha Motif XS6 and a laptop running Vista 64. Both these products seem to support Vista 64, both are around the same in price, both have phantom power, and I've heard good things about both. I'm hoping someone here can help me decide which one (or something comparable) to get.

Thanks much.

I certainly don't want to make the decision for you but on the reliability side of things, there is a thread here that lists the reliability of different interfaces. Echo usually scores higher than Presonus. This is simply driver issue kinds of things. It could be now that drivers for Presonus are doing much better.

I would search for that thread for feedback. Try searching with the word reliable in the Low End section.

In regards to personal experience, most of my songs on my MS page are done through an AF4(first 3). It has been rock solid and hasn't gotten in the way of my recording. Now my pres and mics... that's a different story. ;O)

Hey, thanks for the comment. I was already leaning toward the Echo, but after reading that thread you suggested, I'm pretty much sold. Thanks again!
