  1. Jakito, i was looking through your gear list and had a question regarding your impressions of how well the TC Electronic Impact Twin works with the Lenovo W510 laptop. The reason I ask is I am currently in the market for a firewire audio interface and I use a Lenovo W510 also, currently I am having a tough time deciding between the TC and the Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP. Any information on this issue would be greatly appreciated. For example does the TC work with the onboard Ricoh chipset etc. Thanks

  2. Hi James, I have not had any issues with regards to the Impact Twin/W510 combination. I am not familiar with any chipset details but have not experienced any hardware hiccups worth to mention. The sound is great value for the money and with regards to workflow, the TC works excellently for me. I constantly swap between Adam monitors, KRK headphones and Sennheiser wireless headphones, and I also swap between two different Lenovo machines. Having two channels for Firewire I/O, headphones and speakers on the Impact Twin make this setup very easy to use.
