Thanks Todd and David. I just wish they build a thunderbolt device. I never use that port and would come handy. There are no more firewire ports in new computers and there are just so less USB ports. smile.gif

And Yea, I have made my mind to go with the focusrite for now.. maybe in future I will get a really high quality preamp, even if its just 2 ports.

Sadly, you don't have any choice but to use a Thunderbolt to FIREWIRE converter in this case if you want firewire on a machine with only thunderbolt. The GOOD NEWS is that if you get the right one, you lose no performance in terms of firewire speed. I tested several and kept the SONNETT Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 adapter. Blistering fast smile.gif

Since THUNDERBOLT is a Proprietary (Mac Only) Connection, it's adoption is not widespread and may never be as common as usb. Until then adapters are your best friend smile.gif I've got two thunderbolt ports and often have adapters in both in addition to firewire ports being full.
