Sound on Sound – Apogee Symphony I/O Review

“With versatile I/O complements, comprehensive software control, and the ability to connect directly to computers via USB, 64PCIe interface, or Pro Tools HD interface, the Symphony is a very attractive system. The quality of the audio signal path lives up to Apogee’s claims – this is a very nice and extremely transparent-sounding converter, without the subtle colourations that have been associated with earlier Apogee designs.”

Audio Media – Apogee Symphony I/O Review

“The Symphony I/O upholds Apogee’s pedigree with respect to audio quality while adding expandability, felxibility, and ease of use into the equation. It works beautifully as an alternative or companion to Avid’s own interfaces in a Pro Tools HD system and just as well on its own, either with Apogee’s 64 PCIe card or the basic USB connectivity…I think Apogee has got it just right with the Symphony I/O and I’m looking forward to seeing how the system develops over the coming years.”

Professional Audio (Germany) – Apogee Symphony I/O Review

“With the Symphony I/O Apogee has created an audio interface with cult potential that belongs to the absolute top devices in the market. It is enormously pliable because of the modular design and the performance is outstanding. Soundwise the new converters exceed the highly respected older Apogee converters.”

Worship Leader – Apogee Quartet Review

“Apogee Quartet blew away my expectations in both build and sound quality, and in ease of use and functionality. Using the Quartet feels like you have two devices built into one: a professional 4×8 interface and a monitor control device with fantastic digital to analog conversion. Quartet connects seamlessly to Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad but still has no Windows connectivity, so if you’re a Windows user you’re out of luck for now. Digital inputs increase the value of the Quartet as you can use Apogee’s clocking and conversion to expand to up to 8 more channels. At $1395, Quartet is not cheap, but its intuitive design, superior sound quality, and seamless, integrated iOS connection make it head and shoulders above any other interface in its class and well worth the money.” – Apogee Quartet Review

“If you’re really serious about capturing quality audio and you’re looking for a device that works not just with your iPad, but you can also use with a Mac, you might want to consider the Apogee Quartet. The Quartet is definitely the priciest of the devices we’ve looked at in this series, but you can really feel the quality throughout this device. From its solid metal construction to the quality components, to the warm rich tones it captures.”

GigaOM – Hands on with the Apogee Quartet

“I’m not at all close to a pro-level musician, but the Apogee line has been synonymous with pro-level audio quality for a long time. Reviewing items that cost this much money are a little tough because at the back of my mind is always “it costshow much?” With the Quartet, if you need to record more than two inputs and need a portable device that works with your Mac or iOS device that gives you pro-level sound, then yes, the Quartet is worth the hefty price tag.”

Recording Magazine – Apogee Quartet Review

“In this review I went through the acrobatics of “setting aside the fact that this is an iOS-compatible gizmo” because one must first realize that the Quartet is one serious interface. Up to 12 inputs, 8 outputs, full monitor management, low-latency mixing, extremely flexible studio control, MIDI integration, and more, all combined with the sound that made Apogee famous… it all adds up to the Quartet being a very heavy hitter in the DAW-hardware arena. Once you’ve grasped that, then you can add in that it makes a brilliant portable iOS audio/MIDI solution, one that takes the iPad’s processing power seriously when paired with the right apps.

Whether you believe the future is in the palm of your hand or you’re still solidly siding with the tried-and-true Mac platform… or if you want to be able to move between both worlds and rely on top-quality interfacing no matter what… then the Quartet is a sound investment that will pay major dividends in your final mixes.”

Unique Squared – Quartet Overview with Miles Walker

“The Apogee Quartet is a solidly built, high quality, USB audio interface for those using Apple products from the iPad and iPhone to Apple laptop and desktop computers. While we can tell you all day how cool, interesting, and useful the iOS connectivity is, the barometer for quality when it comes to interfaces will always be the sound. In that regard you can’t go wrong with the Apogee Quartet with its great analog to digital converters and fantastic sounding microphone pre-amps.”

American Songwriter – Apogee Quartet Review

“Are you a performing songwriter and Apple devotee looking to upgrade your recording setup? Perhaps you have a one or two input recording interface and would like to capture your duo or band in a more organic live setting? Or maybe you simply have outdated gear. If so, make the new Apogee Quartet your command central and don’t look back.” – Apogee Quartet Review

“The results were nothing short of spectacular. After comparison with TC Electronic, Focusrite and NI interfaces, the Apogee dusted the competition and produced a much more natural, open sound. The stereo image seemed wider, yet tighter and the overall sonic quality was actually less fatiguing over long periods.”
