Ok, here is my dilemma. I am a pretty big audiophile and I wanted to start recording a little (small scale, guitar, possible mic) and need some advice on the interface. Let me start by saying i have a macbook pro 2.8ghz and i was looking into getting the Apogee one, it seems to have great reviews but lacks a firewire connection. I recently stumbled across the presonus firebox 6x8 with firewire for almost $75 less. What would be the best route to go, should i spend more for the apogee one or look for firewire and go the the firebox? Also as a side note i am currently debating which monitors to get as well, i am stuck between the bx5a deluxe and the krk rokit 5's. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
