Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 96 Recording System:

Pros: This is an excellent inexpensive portable audio interface. The sound is great--whether you are using a dynamic mic, a condenser mic, or plugging in a guitar. Clean and pristine sound. Very nice DACs and preamps. You get great bonuses, too, with a free plugin suite and the Studio One Artist DAW software.

Cons: The supplied USB cable was bad. Kept disconnecting (getting a device failed to initialize message after 2 minutes of recording). I had to swap it out with another cable which solved the problem. The Audiobox is also a little quirky to set up. Make sure you plug it into a USB 2.0 port--NOT USB 3.0! Also, always use the same port, otherwise Windows will create an "unknown" device.

Great sounding interface, fantastic DACs and preamp.

Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 96 Recording System:

Well, first, the sound is fantastic. Clean, quiet, pristine sound. I think this unit has excellent DACs and pre-amp. Installation can be tricky on a Windows workstation. Make sure you plug this in a USB 2.0 port and not USB 3.0. Also, don't change the port--always use the same port, otherwise you'll create an "unknown device" if you plug it into a different USB port from the first one you used.

Another issue was the supplied USB cable was faulty. The AudioBox kept disconnecting until I swapped it out with another USB cable I had. The AudioBox cable seems to work fine with other devices so maybe the Audiobox isn't very tolerant of cables that aren't top notch quality.

It's a fantastic unit. I would give it 5 stars except the supplied USB cable was an issue with the unit.

      An all around great product!

      Comments about Presonus AudioBox USB 96 Recording System:

      I use this interface with my mobile recording rig. I recently used it while on the road. I really like not needing a power source other than the USB port on my computer to run it. I was able to use it in along with my NI Maschine MK3. The included Studio One 3 Artist DAW that came with the package also convinced me to change DAWs and upgrade to Professional. The converters on this interface are superb and very clean. An all around great product!
