Hi there, I just want to know opinions about the new Tracker Pre USB Audio Interface from EMU.
From the specs it sounds like a 0202 upgrade, same chips but better quality numbers, I don't know if they will be audible.

I currently own the EMU 0404 USB 2.0, but I brought it only for the DAC and preamp for headphones.

So, for someone searching for this features (output), what would you recommend?

$200 - 0404 USB
$150 - Tracker Pre USB
$130 - 0202 USB
