But just wondering who out there made the switch from Pro to FS? And is the difference in sound noticeable enough to justify the REinvestment?

I am hoping that rme will make a mixer type of USB/tb3 interface. Something like a tascam model 12 rme edition

Headphone output is improved, and the DAC is only slightly better.

I've never A-B'd the BF Pro and the BF Pro FS since I only own the latter. But I don't think it would be worth it to upgrade from the previous version to the FS, the original BF Pro is a great device and won't hold anyone back. At the least, I'd be VERY surprised if you were to upgrade and find a noticeable improvement. I think you'd have to expand your budget quite a bit to notice an improvement over what you already have.

I have the non-FS, as well as some high end equipment to compare it to, and I think it sounds professional.

Very happy with the non-FS. Integrates beautifully with the iPad Pro. Two RE-55s on my piano and two cloudlifter Zs = awesome raw file. Equipment is so good these days.

I just spoke to a local RME dealer and they confirmed the Babyface Pro FS is currently not in production anymore. Either RME is about to update the product or the global chip shortage and AKM factory fire is affecting the production.

Rough times.

Wow, that's sad. I snatched one second hand on super mint condition for 550€. Had an UAD Apollo X4 before but the Babyface Pro FS was so much cleaner sounding, that's why I switched.

But they're €585 (€689 inc VAT) at Thomann and they have them in stock. Or are we talking about something different?
