TubeSoundJim, 22.05.2017
I use the satellite in my proffesional studio in Athens.
I had the previous version which was the sattellite quad core Firewire.
With the firewire one, i had speed problems as the increase of the plug ins, so if the cpu of the unit was 100% for example i had delay problems, even if i had the delay compensation on, in my daw (which happend to be Avid's Pro Tools 11.
Pros:

Now back to the Octo core Thunderbolt satellite, all i can say i'ts perfect!! When i hit the switch button to turn in on within a few seconds it's clocked with the system (Host indicator on the satelite) and runs perfectly without any issues or delay problems beacuse of the thunderbolt technology, not to mention the headroom i have because of the eight cores, which means that if i full the eight cores and i still have problems on my mix, then sure the satellite it's not the case. Great features such as 2 thunderbolt ports for daisy chain with other uad thunderbolt devices makes it very user friendly and gives me lots of options.
Cons:
I can't find any cons except that is a bit pricey.

A great unit for any professional studio without any issues!
