That's my plan. Have two Mogami Gold balanced XLR female to 1/4" TRS on the way. Thanks for the feedback Chuck.

You are soooo right. Buying demos or used on anything electrical or mechanical (i.e. a car) has more risk and buying new is certainly less stress/risk.

That's why I ordered the Motu with dedicated line inputs. It actually arrived today but I need to get the Axis swapped out.
