OK, is this confusing?

“Featuring 6 inputs”

“The US-1800 includes eight XLR microphone inputs”
“Six balanced line inputs are also provided, as well as stereo S/PDIF digital”

Further down
“• 16 simultaneous inputs”

I believe the FIRST LINE is missing a ONE before the SIX (Featuring 16 Inputs).

Where are the drivers? There’s none listed in the downloads section… or can it use the same drivers as the US-1641? Also, are there any internal differences between this and the US-1641?  Thanks.
