I don't doubt the quality of the UL's pres, I more wanted to know if anyone knew of any portable 2-6 channel mic preamps that I could tack onto the ultralite for location recording/jamming purposes.

If you say you can, you are so full of shyte.

If you are super obsessed, wait for the RME fireface 400 and get that, or hell just get the Fireface 800.
Actually, it depends. For example, on a audiophile 192, 192 sr is inherently better than 96k. And 96k is so far away from can't believe it.......... seems to be pretty clear no matter what. Of course, the higher the sample rate, the better the latency.......without having to push the buffer too hard......

I rekon it just comes down to how many ins and outs you want.

I got the traveller and am happy with it because I don't need a pa mixer for doing mics live, just bring the sound into live and use live as the mixer with my uc33e :)
