The Crimson is built like a tank, it's heavy duty construction gives it a great feel. Even more important the sound is clear and clean, best I've had to date (I've used mostly MOTU devices in the past).
The layout is nice, although I wish I could get it to run in "stealth" mode without so many of the push button lights.
Note the input latency is extremely low (2ms) but the output latency is much higher (10ms) with ASIO. For comparison my old MOTU 2408 was 6ms in and 6ms out, so the total round trip is the same.
I get an occasional screech, glitch, or audio artifact that I have not yet figured out. I'm not sure if there is a conflict with another USB device or not, so I will be re-installing Windows 8.1 from scratch to see if I can resolve it.

Very solid. Built like a tank. I was a little underwhelmed by the sound quality coming out. unstable in windows 7, PT10. also difficult to find info on the web and customer support hasn't answered any of my emails
