If this ain't the real thing, then it's close enough to pretend

The Scarlett 8i6 looks identical to the Saffire Pro 14 except its color and usb instead of firewire. The Saffire Pro 14 works in stand-alone mode and passes digital signal. I would have to expect these do as well. However, the bit rate and sampling frequency must be set when connected to the computer. I do find the preamps to sound surprising good for the price.
