What external soundcard (etc.) for 8320

Hey guys! Moi!

I'm buying a pair of 8320's for my tiny wardrobe home officee. What external soundcard and other equipment do you recommend?! Please no products that only come in red - black-grey-white are my colors :).

ALL tips are welcome!

(Extra points for solutions and tips for audio cards to connect my electric guitar)

No, I don't, on the cheap end I usually recommend focusrite which are very red.

But maybe I'll find you one, if you tell me how you like your 2020 version. I only just upgraded to 2018.12.
Look at my attachment if you're justifiedly confused now ;-)

120.- Native Instruments Komplete Audio 2
150.- Steinberg UR22C
200 SSL 2
240 Audient iD14 MKII
700 RME Babyface

I think I'd go with the Steinberg or Audient one.
Drivers might crash 1-6 times a year on the cheaper ones, never on the RME

Thank you for your help guys!

I ended up going with an Apollo Solo (USB C VERSION).

Cool, do note that the main point of UAD hardware is to be able to run their plugins.
Their drivers (or possibly only their pci-e hardware) seem to be a bit problematic, have 2 friends who are both pretty pissed off with theirs.
