Closest StoreBurlington, Ontario
Was recommended this by staff, while checking out Focusrite Scarlet Solo and some other audio interfaces. In essence, they seem identical, and can't really speak to any actual audio difference, if there is any, but this is very solid, well made and easy to use, and offers the same features as the Focusrite. However the Presonus comes with a full version of Studio One Artist edition (price to buy separately $149CAD), whereas the Focusrite comes with the free and feature-limited version of Pro Tools, which is available for anybody to download anyway. If you want Pro Tools, you can obviously still use it with the Presonus box, but if you're not wedded to a particular DAW, you're saving $149 right out of the gate.
