Any professional audio interface meant for professional recording should have great AD/DA converters. Just get the one with the best features.

They are pretty similar, honestly - I'd give the edge to the Focusrite, though. For the price, it's really a no-brainer, though. The Saffire Pro 40 is a much better deal (<$360 B-Stock on eBay), and you'll have much less headaches trying to deal with it's issues, because the drivers are rock solid on Focusrite gear. Especially if you're using Windows, the Focusrite is the clear winner, the M-Audio has all kinds of issues for many people.

Those are good units, but they're not "pro studio" units. You won't find someone using them surrounded by gear by Avalon, SSL, Neve, Universal Audio and the like.

Not dissing them, but I mention that because, at that level, the converters will be good enough for anything you want to throw at them. The rest of the gear around it will not be of a caliber enough to make them the weak link in your system.

They'll be good enough that you won't notice their weakness until you get into using really expensive gear.

I don't like anything by Avid. Period. Don't recommend it at all. I'm a HUGE Focusrite proponent and can say that my Pro 40 has never given me a problem once, the firewire medium aside.

It's a great unit, with great/clean pre amps and stellar conversion.

^ Ironically, a lot of Digidesign (Avid) stuff uses Focusrite pres.
