Artist Testimonial

Steve Rothery

"I bought my MR816 CSX because I needed to have a high quality mobile interface to use with Nuendo in the studio and on tour. I was staggered by the quality of the convertors and mike pre-amps. I've found it both musical and transparent and it has been totally reliable."
