m audio vs. motu

Post by arkestra » Thu Feb 03, 2005 7:25 pm

hi all sorry to throw in one of these but has anyone heard anything about or tried the m audio 1814? Ive read the official reviews but wonder if the good old 828 is a better choice. thanks.

I bought a used 828 instead of a new M-Audio for my Powerbook. I'm very happy.

people have been mentioning pops and digital noise from 828s and 828mk2s. Have you noticed this?
What software are you running and what type of mac?

From what I understand (and that isn't much!), the pops only occur for PC users. I own an 828 using osx, and occasionally os9, and I have very little complaints. It's a great deal for me.
