Good Buy, For Right Price

I was in the market for a new converter due to my expanding studio situation. With a great amount of high quality converters out on the market now I was highly confused in what would be the best option for me and my situation. After going back and forth the Aurora 16 seemed to be the best fit for the studio. The conversion is true and it was what I wanted in my converter; transparency. The price point was perfect, and this unit is a trusted sound. how could you go wrong. The biggest plus is I don't have to worry about my converter being obsolete next year! I can just swap LT cards!!!
