I use R24 as audio i/f occasionally and have encountered no problems. The sound quality sounds ok to me. I use a Linux PC with Ardour DAW.
For practical reasons I make most recordings on the R24 itself -- it is portable so I can take it to where the music is. Also, it does not make noise like the PC.

I use my R16 as an audio interface to my laptop. I get good results and have gotten some nice comments on the quality of the recordings.

I had an R24 and used it for an audio I/F; no problems.

Now I have an R8 and I'm using it for an interface; again, no problems.

You won't need to bother with getting something else.
