Cheap But Best Option?

Right now I'm looking to build a mixing only studio and my interface is the fast track C400 but I am wanting some sort of interface that I can use that has a much better clock. I'll be plugging it into a center station for monitor control with the csr-1 remote. I'm really only hoping to spend 250-300 as I just need something to start up with and make some money to buy better gear. Could care less if it is used or not though. Any help would be much appreciated.

Will your current interface REALLY prevent you from making money?

Will 250 to 300 REALLY be that much of an improvement?

If you believe that the answer is "yes" to these questions I suggest you search the forums. Low-end interfaces are discussed a lot around here.

Personally, if you think that if you are capable of producing good results (a skill, by the way, that is quite independent of the gear you use to get said results) then just go for it, make some more cash if you can, save the cash you have, then upgrade to something that will really make a difference once you have enough money to allow you to look at a wider range of upgrade options.

If you can deal with firewire the Konnekt6 has a great d/a for the price.

But whether you can start earning money is going to depend way more on your mixing and marketing skills and perhaps your monitoring and room treatment before the quality of your converters.
