If you like the look of Focusrite's 2i2 but could do with more connectivity options, the 6i6 could be a contender.
It has the same styling, but boasts two preamp-equipped front panel mic/ line/instrument inputs, and two rear-mounted balanced TRS line level inputs. There are four rear-mounted balanced TRS outputs, and the six in/out spec is completed by rear-mounted stereo S/PDIF in/out.
The front panel phantom power switch activates power for both mic preamps, and the 6i6's main monitor knob controls the level at outputs 1 and 2. There are two headphone outputs with individual level controls. These are shared with outputs 1 to 4, but with a separate output pair for each headphone output.
With plenty of gain on the preamps and the ability to make highly detailed recordings, the 6i6 gives you a lot for your money.4 Stars
