Their interfaces are nice. Great line out right now from the One all the way up through the Symphony I/O. No skimping, they sound great, however, rudely over priced. But hey, they know better. I mean, people pay top dollar for Beats, so... Not comparing the quality between these two, just the marketing.

@RP its still $50,- cheaper so I don't get your complaining. Would you rather pay 50,- extra then? Didn't think so. ;)

Good luck finding a better Interface (with quality ad/da convertors) for less money and great integration with OSX and iOS.

$50 is hardly an amazing promotion. Even with the promotion, the UAD Solo is only £150 more with more functionality & (arguably) a neater package.

@Sir Casm, Depends on the functionality.

Its not compatible with any tablet or phone to my knowledge, the Duet on the other hand is a great partner for that. The Apollo Solo does include DSP processing for the UAD platform and if your using that it may be a big plus but if you're not you're paying extra for something that your not gonna use. I'm not getting any warm feelings about UAD. (btw i'm not saying UAD sucks)

For me an audio interface should be about the ad/da conversion and how it flows with your system of choose. Never tried the UA apollo interfaces but I do love the convertors that Apogee is using and how it works with my Macs and iOS devices. I'm also using iOS devices more often when it comes to making music.

So I guess it mostly depends on workflow. :)

Yes Champ, good points & I agree with all of that. I sometimes use an old Apogee One still which is good. Presume the new ones are better too. It's the additional plugins that make me err towards the UAD.
