Great interface for Home Studio!
Tomas T., 04.06.2019
I currently use this audio interface for my Home Studio setup.
Presonus Studio 26c is a small audio interface with a very clear sound, especially for this price. It is very easy to set up (plug and play on Mac).
The build quality is good. It feels very sturdy, and well built. One of the downsides I found so far is that they placed all the outputs in the back of the interface, which make plugging in the headphone a drag. Also sometimes the interface needs to be disconnected and reconnected, as it is not recognized by the software.
The best part about this product though, is the USB-C connection. This gets rid of any dongles, and that is veeeery handy. At the moment being one of the only, if not the only audio interface in that price with a USB-C connection, it gives presonus a nice lead.

Overall a great and affordable product.

Very good
Gabel, 04.10.2019
I use it for audio playback, voip and sometimes for mixing in a treated room. I got to love Presonus gear from my first audiobox bought more than 8 years ago which at some point I had in parallel with a RME Fireface 800 and didn't hear any differences on playback, mic pres were indeed better on RME.
Never had driver problems which for me is one of the most important aspect in a audio interface.

Cons:
*Very good sound on all outputs, headphones included. Only tried with maximum 55 ohm headphones which it can easily overdrive.
* Really good preamps
*Usb powered and plug and play on windows , it is recommended u get software pack from Presonus.
*Switches , pots feel good and sturdy.
*Solid contruction, managed to drop it from 1 meter before plugging it in the first time and was totally fine :) .

Cons: None in 1 month of heavy use, no weird sounds, clicks or unresponsive drivers.

In addition, it has a type-c connection,and it comes with type-c and usb cables from the box.

pros & cons:
I have been using this stuff for 2 months ,and I haven't had glitches or some noticeable defects.

26c is a real deal!

Great soundcard
Pellefri, 10.08.2020
This is a great soundcard!!
Preamps sounds much better than I expected, latency is good and a lot of software included.
For the only drawback is that after 9 months one of the preamps started making noise. Build quality is otherwise really good and sturdy. Waiting for it to return from a repair.
