    Best-In-Class Audio Quality
    Equipped with the same ESS Sabre32 Ultra™ DAC Technology found in audio interfaces costing thousands, the M6 delivers an astonishing 120dB Dynamic Range on its line outputs. ESS converters also drive the headphone output, which rivals dedicated headphone amplifiers costing hundreds. Ultra-clean preamp circuits produce a measured -129dBu EIN on the mic inputs. Capture and monitor your audio with pristine clarity.

    Best-In-Class Speed
    The M6 provides best-in-class speed for monitoring live inputs (mic, guitar or keyboard) through your computer, thanks to MOTU’s expertly engineered USB drivers, which deliver class-leading, ultra-low 2.5ms Round Trip Latency (32 sample buffer at 96kHz).

    Best-In-Class Metering
    When recording and mixing, nothing is more critical than achieving optimum levels. The M6 is the only audio interface in its class with a full-colour 160×120 pixel LCD featuring clear, detailed level meters for all inputs and outputs. Enjoy professional-level volume control and feedback to get your sound just right.

    Loopback for Live Streaming and Podcasting
    The M6 driver provides convenient loopback channels to your host computer, so you can easily route computer output back to the computer, where you can mix it with live mics and/or guitar inputs from the M6 in your host software for live streaming or podcasting. Streaming and podcasting have never been easier and better sounding!
