Almos perfect
Batuta, 17.08.2020
Great sound quality! the only thing is: it do not give the owner, new plugins from UAD! witch is terrible, if you are buying the most expensive interface of UA.

Best Line-Level interface hands down
SkyStudio, 06.10.2019
This is simply the best interface for your analog outboard gear. We use it with the Neve Summing Mixer (outputs) and for all our line-level gear in the studio. It’s a great DSP boost also to our Apollo x8p!

Très bonne interface. Excellente définition des convertisseurs, look et finition très soigné, les plugins UAD en prime. C'est un no brainer. A acheté les yeux et les oreilles fermées !

Sehr gutes Gerät
I aus B., 26.09.2020
Als Ergänzung zum Apollo Twin tut das Apollo x16 genau was es soll, ergänzt das System um 16 Ein- und Ausgänge und addiert 6 DSP‘s.
Die Bedienung ist in Kombination mit dem Twin und der Software wirklich schön gelöst und funktioniert einwandfrei!
Mit dem „Sound“ der Wandler bin ich sehr zufrieden, bzw. mir fällt nichts negatives auf, habe jedoch keinen Vergleich zu anderen guten Wandlern.
