I don't know the konekt, but I can say that RME has been my choice for about 8 or 9 years now because os superior support, great software and auxillary applications, and very good hardware. I've owned the 9652, Multiface and Digiface with both PCI and cardbus interfaces, and I've been running a Fireface 800 pretty much since they became available.
My other recommendation in quality audio interfaces is Lynx. As I said though, I am not familar with konnekt.
