Sorry if this has been posted already. I have a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 and it works fine with the drivers from Focusrite.

Hi guys,
I'm trying to figure out which interface is more stable with Hackintosh. Trying to choose between the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 and the RME Fireface 800.

I've seen a lot more stability complaints for the Saffire on here compared to the Fireface. Is this still the case?
RME has the best Firewire drivers out of any audio interface.

I can confirm that the Phonic Helix Board FireWire functions flawlessly in OS X. I use it with my Mac Pro 1,1 (Tiamo Mavericks Hack) to record at the music store where I work.

I have a Liquid Saffire 56 and it works fine with the Focusrite drivers version 3.4. (I have to turn the input gain all the way up for my mics to have enough gain, though. Never understood why. Mics are Rode NT1000 and Miktek CV4. The interface sounds good.)
I've always heard good things about the RME stuff. Never had an RME product, though.

Certified FW Chipsets and PCie cards for almost all FW audio devices

(chipsets are certified or recommended by Avid, Presonus, RME)

Confirm that Metric Halo 2882 (http://mhsecure.com/metric_halo/products/hardware/2882.html) and Metric Halo ULN2 (http://mhsecure.com/metric_halo/products/hardware/uln-2.html) works perfectly via FW chipset "TI XIO2213B" (Digitus Firewire 800 / 400 Combo PCIe, DS-30203-1) and "TSB43AB23" (Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R ONBOARD)

Actually Metric Halo has the most stablest and best FW implementation and drivers I've ever seen on a product.

I have a Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1 USB audio interface (it's an old product) and it's working fine with the latest drivers supplied by Native Instruments under Mavericks (10.9.3). I use it for MIDI (in/out), as an interface for my guitar, and to drive Yamaha monitors.
