Apogee AD16 (not X) vs. Motu24i/o

So if no one has figured out, there is a nicely priced apogee ad16 and da16 on craigslist currently.

Really tempted to go pick them up myself but I like having 20 inputs/outputs but am curious about the quality, I know the AD16x are far far superior than the motu, but where do people stand on the older apogee units?

Im growing less fond of the motu, its not as transparent as I want, and colours in a negative way in my opinion.

I've got both AD and DA 16 units and like them very much. I haven't had the dough to jump into some of the more expensive stuff yet so I went that route and found them to be a significant improvement over Motu stuff. I have mine clocked to Big Ben also btw.

Hope that gives you some help with your decision.
