thanks niklas; the behringer is certainly a good option with only 1/3 of
the cost; nevertheless, i'm still eyeing the 9.5" format, also since the
motu is just 1.1kg versus 1.8kg for the behringer (well, and focusrite
being the monster at 3.3kg). and for cheap installations, i can even
drop to like a logilink 8-channel interface with mini jacks ;)

best, ...h.h...
