I have the RME for many years, I could probably switch to the new model. Never had a problem, a guarantee of safety and quality.
If you zoom the photo on the right side of the desk, you can clearly see that it is RME interface (blue colour, overall placing of mic inputs and clear RME sign on the left). On first look it looked like Fireface 800 (which would clearly match the timeline when the duo started producing music since the interface at this moment is out of production) and i checked on internet some photos of it and Fireface 800 is only one that has 4 mic level inputs with yellow LED above the mic inputs. The green LED that is lit also matches the Fireface 800 design.more
Have had this for years now, NEVER a problem (except when it got fried during a thunderstorm, but I sent it back to RME and they fixed it). Pristine sounds, no compatibility problems, very stable software, the list goes on. A little pricey, but I'd recommend RME products to anyone.
