    Does anyone have one going cheap?

    Looking to upgrade my setup and heard these babes are good. has anyone had experience using one? Better than the apogee Duet?

    sensible offers please!

    Cheers!

    You recon? I'm not convinced. but saying that I've got a multiface and i fucking love it.

    Skuzzy you should have a read of this though:
    http://www.gearslutz.com/board/so-m...duet-v-s-rme-babyface-preamps-converters.html

    And nydus this thread is interesting (if a little long) about converter tests, it basically says that there isn't enough difference to really worry:

    Hey man,

    Sorry but the convertors of the RME Babyface blow the Apogee Duet out of the water. However the Apogee Duet 2 vs RME Babyface is a marginal difference which is down to subjective taste (IMO?).

    Edit:
    IIRC there's a thread on Gearslutz testing the Babyface against the Duet where you can witness the conversion.

    They're both solid interfaces. I'm a duet 2 guy myself, but RME makes a high quality product as well.
