Digi002 A-to-D Conversion Any Good?

I've recently jumped ship from PT to start using Logic 8.

What a difference.

Are the A-to-D converters in the Digi002 any good?

Will I notice a discernable difference if I step up to the Apogee Ensemble or RNE Fireface? Or is the Digi002's A-to-D conversion comparable to those two products'?

I'm using EVRE20s and some RNC Really Nice Preamps with RODE NT1s to record drums, and I'm recording bass direct from a preamp.

Thanks.

Hey there,
The 002 are decent pre's, the problem is that digi and Logic dont always play nice.
I've had latencies as long as a week with these two, so for my Logic rig I use The RME Fireface800. Really good pre's, stable, and it not too bad with latency.
Good Luck
Ciao

Depends what you mean by "good", but I'd say no. They're pretty average.

Yes. If you're thinking about either of those you should also consider the Metric Halo stuff, which is better than either.

Either of those units will have better A/D and D/A than a 002. I have no experience with the Metric Halo but several people whose opinion I respect, like Orren Merton here, speak highly of its converters and driver.

I own the 002r and a Duet (same converters as the ensemble). The 002 is average - not bad but definitely better products out there, both for AD/DA conversion and playing nice with Logic. The Duet sounds noticeably better than the 002r. The other products mentioned previously in the thread should be quite nice as well.
