Firebox vs Firestudio Mobile

What are the significant differences between the Presonus Firebox and the newer Firestudio Mobile ?

Presonus has them both up as firewire.

I see:

Class A XMAX pres ?

Dice II chipset?

New 'Studio One Artist DAW' software to integrate better with the computer?

Could any one give me some insight, as to how this might be improved from the Firebox?

The F/S mobile has considerably more preamp gain than the firebox (something like 70db as opposed to something like 45 on the firebox). That's all I remember off the top of my head.

The number of analog inputs and outputs is very different between the two. Makes a difference whether you want to use the unit primarily for recording or playback.

all the above plus better A/D conversion and better jitter reduction.

Simply visit the Presonus site it does a great job outlining the product features.

Having owned a Firebox it's a welcome upgrade. Right now I couldn't recommend the Firebox to anyone looking to spend $200 or less. Preamps and conversion are just behind the curve.
