StarStarStarStarStar 5/5

It's a very nice bit of kit: arrived promptly, looks good, easy set up, with very helpful basic online videos en route. And, so far as I can tell so far, it does a very good job. The Focusrite Control / driver is intuitive, nothing like the 1st gen version (allegedly). Probably worth making sure you've got a fairly up-to-date OS, I downloaded macOS HighSierra (10.13) to be safe, and haven't had any issues, some earlier OSs are not supported (check manufacturer web site if not sure!). I've only had it a week, so early days, but a dream so far!
