ThunderBolt Upgrade Bundle(Ensemble vs. Omni)

Avid's release of the ThunderBolt interface is making me consider an upgrade.

It looks like the ThunderBolt is being bundled with an Omni interface & PTHD.

Currently, I'm using an Ensemble, PT 10, thru an iMac (i7, 16 Gigs RAM). I generally record no more than one or 2 tracks simultaneously using outboard preamps going through the Ensemble.

By upgrading I get a chance to jump up to HD. I also suspect that the Omni integration with PT is rock solid.

My question is how does the Omni compare to the Ensemble (I assume it is a step up...am i correct) ? I'm primarily concerned about AD/DA & ease of use.

The conversion of the Omni is a huge step up from the Ensemble. The new HD interfaces (including the Omni) are comparable with Prisms, Lavrys, the Apogee Symphony IO, etc.
