This is for adding 8 inputs to my UA Twin… line level use only, via ADAT.
I have a proper discount on Focusrite via work. Their web shop prices are about €100 higher than all shops. That said, there’s only a €100 difference between NEW Scarlett and a REFURB Clarett. Figure that’s a safe bet coming from the manufacturer site, plus 2 year ext warranty etc.
Now then, I know it’s only €100, but is there a major difference re: A/D conversion of line level input? Re: price consideration, with the discount the refurb Clarett costs the same as a new Scarlett in shops, so basically what I was going to spend before i got the hookup anyway. But yeah, €100 is €100 and I’ve got session players and mastering to pay for.
So it works out to:
Scarlett - €100 under budget
Clarett - same as orginal budget
What would you do?
