I don't know this very cheap prosumer audio device. I once tested the
Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL. The 1818VSL seems to be a quite good usable
audio interface for home recording, but it's also a prosumer audio
device. It's quite possible to do professional recordings with a
prosumer audio interface, but with the exception, that you are unable
to estimate fine nuances. I compared the 1818VSL with the professional
RME card's IOs and with a prosumer ADA8000 IOs. I suspect an audiophile
person expects professional audio quality + esoteric humbug. Those
prosumer devices are good enough for most users, but they definitively
don't provide the audio quality of a RME card and this isn't esoteric
