American Songwriter – A Singer-Songwriter Test Drives the Apogee Duet

“Other interfaces I’ve used in the past take days-even weeks-to get comfortable with; however, I’m only 30 minutes into my first go with a Duet, and we already feel like old friends.”

CNET – Maybe it’s time to upgrade your headphone’s sound with a pro-quality headphone amplifier

“If you compare the Groove with the lackluster sound you get from the headphone jack on your computer or phone, the improvements in clarity, dynamic impact, and soundstage spaciousness from a first-class digital converter/ headphone amp will be hard to miss”

New York Times – Listening for the Headphones You Want

“A good DAC can open up music, allowing subtleties to come through and offering a new listening experience for music stored on a computer or streamed through an app. But a high-quality DAC can be expensive, often costing $1,000 or more. The Groove DAC from Apogee offers many of the upsides for under $300…The company, which has three decades of experience developing technology for recording studios, has built the device to adjust the sound to any type of headphones.”

Mix Magazine – Apogee Ensemble Review

“With plenty of I/O for project studios right out of the box, and the expansion potential provided by digital I/O, this is the perfect centerpiece to the modern studio. It can serve as a monitor controller for multiple speaker pairs, or be configured for surround sound. Best of all, the pre’s and converters are top-notch and will not disappoint. If you’re in the market for a fully featured multichannel interface, this should be high on your list of choices.”

Head-Fi – Apogee Groove Review

“In the end the Groove can make your music sound the way it should be listened to. The overall sound is balanced with great retrieval of details.. To top it off it can drive most headphones with it’s amp section. It sounds better than higher priced dedicated desktop amp/dac combos that I have used. Whatever magic they did in this little unit, just works…It’s not every day I get to demo something that gives me that WOW factor, the Groove has definitely shocked me.”

Future Music – Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt review

“Apogee’s preamp reputation is second to none; this interface sounds sumptuous and there’s no doubt that it will turn the heads of guitar-led producers as much as those requiring more ‘regular’ microphone and line inputs via its neat and well thought- through re-amping capabilities.

Audiofanzine – Apogee ONE Review

“While the sampling rate of the first version was limited to 48 kHz, this new version can presently handle up to 24 bits at 96 kHz. But even more interesting is the fact that it allows us to manage two inputs, which gives us many more possibilities than before: we can record the instrument and the mic inputs at the same time, or the instrument input and the internal mic, or both mics at the same time. To cut it short, apart from iOS compatibility, this is clearly the greatest evolution of the interface”
