Focusrite vs. Lexicon

Hello. I am shopping around for my first interface to start off my home studio. It's been a long process since I want to get exactly what I need. I am using a macbook right now but plan to upgrade to an iMac in the future.
The two interfaces I am looking at right now are the Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 and the Lexicon IONIX U82S

I would appreciate any input on these and any recommendations for different interfaces

The Lexicon is a beautiful sounding unit. The preamps are very nice. The drivers are very stable in Mac and PC. This is my favorite interface at that price range. Even double the price I would still buy the Lexicon.
This focusrite I have not used.

i own a focusrite 18i6 the preamps in that are great to start with. the only downside is that eventually youll want more than 2 mic pres. which is the current situation im at atm. i havn ried or heard of the lexicon interfaces.

Yeah, that was my only concern with the 18i6
I don't want to have to upgrade with another whole rack of inputs
