Mackie Onyx 1620i or Presonus 16.0.2?

Hi. I use a 16-ch mixer as the centre piece of a music room, where we occasionally do some
recording, and we occasionally do live gigs and use it with a small PA. These needs are
met with a kludge of gear built up over the years, so I'm thinking of e-baying the lot of
it and using one of these digital mixers as both a practise room/live mixer and audio
I quite like the Mackie because it just looks simpler. The Presonus
offers a whole lot more (and is a bit more expensive) but I don't want to spend all my
time figuring out the mixer instead of playing or recording.
Anyone else looked
at these (or other options?) and have any comments about using them with Logic 9?
Comparable preamp quality?
Part of me say wait till all this kit moves to
Thunderbolt, but it doesn't seem to be happening very fast. There's a new Thunderbolt to
FW800 adapter from Apple. Do we think this will talk to FW400 okay?
