I'm planning to buy one of these Firewire-Racks. Price is nearly identical, yet I'm not sure which one to take.

Digi has ProTools LE (but is that really needed nowadays!?), RME got better driver support and Firewire 800. I don't need lots of ADATs (002). Analogue I/O and MicPreamps are the same.

Anybody care to help ? I just can't decided. Apart technical stuff the 002 design hits my taste a lot more than RME's yet I tend toward RME due to doubled transfer rate and better driver update. Hmm.

I'm still 1-2 months away before I place an order, though. Any news if Digidesign has plans for new hardware?
