Duetâ€™s inputs and outputs feature two channels of Apogeeâ€™s legendary A/D and D/A conversion. The inputs offer two premium, digitally controlled microphone preamps with 75 dB of gain and two unbalanced high impedance instrument inputs. The two channels of reference quality output are available via the 1/4â€� powered speaker connections and studio quality headphone jack.
Duet is designed for ease of use and portability. Apogee say that its sleek, ultra-compact chassis gives it a small footprint in the workspace and its bus-powered FireWire connection makes it possible to create professional recordings anywhere. Duetâ€˜s multi-function controller knob can select the input or output source and set gain or level. Duet is also capable of controlling MIDI devices with a simple setting in Apogeeâ€™s Maestro software application.
Betty Bennett, CEO of Apogee Electronics, told us, â€œWe are excited to advance the Native recording revolution with Duet. Apogee has worked very closely with Apple to produce the finest integrated audio solutions for the Mac. Duet is the personal version of our Ensemble interface and brings a level of quality and capability never before available at this price point.â€�

I just upgraded my MOTU Ultralite to this and I honestly was blown away by its clarity and range. I use this with a Mackie desk and its the best you can buy. Plus if you want more ins and out you can chain them for cheaper than buying and ensemble.
