The pre's and phantom power are nothing to write home about. But that's alright because the converters will smoke anything else but those costing thousands of dollars. Even the Lynx cards converters are rated less. Still don't know how EMU pulled that off but you'd have to literally spend several thousand dollars to beat it in regard to the converters. Bottom line is it's a no brainer if you're coming at if from that angle. And Patchmix is the bomb. Once you begin to wrap your head around it, you begin to see just how flexible and powerful it is for endless routing configurations. Hands down more flexible and capable than any other software mixer I've ever used.

This is a great product for the price and I did a lot of research before buying it. But I'm giving this product a 4 star just because of 1 thing: Phantom power supply on this unit is garbage. I bought audiotechnica AT2035 condenser microphone to use with this unit and there was a lot of crackling/popping. I contacted customer service and they asked me to do some usual stuffs (check driver version, try moving away from interference, swap cables blah blah etc.). I bought an external Nady phantom power supply for $20 and turned off the phantom power supply on the EMU unit and now it works perfectly. No crackling/popping sounds.
Other than that, setup is not straightforward for novice people like me, since you have to go to the control panel manually and then choose the sound input/output for this unit manually. I wish the installation process would give that option and enable the unit automatically. I wasted some time trying to figure it out and it wasn't so clear on the instruction manual.
The software that comes with the unit is great and you can start recording (if you are using for that) right away. I specially liked the Sonar Software that came with it. I've been using it for about a month now and seems very powerful. Cubase was also good, but I personally liked Sonar. You can also play with patchmix DSP to get desired effects on your inputs and outputs. Patchmix documentation is pretty good and if you read through it, you'll be able to add/remove effects in no time.

I hesitated purchasing this item because of some of the negative reviews. I have a Windows 7 64-bit system and many reviews indicated problems with this particular setup. They couldn't be more wrong. I installed the card (PCIe), installed the drivers and restarted the machine. It worked first time.

Of course, just getting sound to come through is not the most difficult thing - it's getting all the settings working with your DAW. I'm using Reaper and it did take some experimenting and reading the manuals to finally figure out the correct configuration of Patchmix and Reaper. Although it was not always intuitive, the answers were not that difficult to find - either online or in the manuals.

So far the unit does an excellent job of capturing all my recording sources - even my violin, which has given me trouble in the past. So I am highly satisfied with my purchase and can give five stars. The fact that I got it on sale makes it even better.

This device has good mic preamps. It is capable of higher resolution than most home studios use. Windows 7 64-bit driver works fine.

The 1616M is a great product from E-Mu. The 24 bit/192 khz sound that comes from the converters is second to nonw. Patchmix is a bit of a pain to set up but is very flexible & powerful with the included effects. The only problem is this is going to be discontinued soon so no future support. I have Vista 64 bit Service Pack 2 running on my computer & it works fine. There are NO Windows 7 drivers unfortunately for this system. If you download the beta drivers from the E-mu site they MAY work for your system, but there is no guarantee. I wish that E-mu would continue these line of audio interfaces. If you can wrap your head around the routing & different quirks it works just as advertised.
