This is a hot topic for me atm. Being totally underwhelmed by Apollo x16 x8 xTwin - Just got the wrong gear for what I am doing now, covid killed all the live stuff we used to do so those amazing racks are just overkill.
Symphony IO MKII is my main in/out interface, Kii Control (really just used as an output only DAC for my Kii Threes), and two other DACs: Chord Hugo and the Shiit Jotunheim w/mgbit DAC.... and somewhere around here I have an Antelope Discrete Synergy I never use anymore.
I've been getting by with a Zoom R16. I will say that I've had a couple of problems with it as an interface, sometimes the playback randomly slows down. But other than that it's been pretty decent at single-track recording straight into the DAW.
It's gotten better use as a multi-track recorder though. I kind of like being able to just record what I want without bringing the computer into it. When it gets time for mixing, then I'll drop the stems intro Reaper and take it from there.
