“I’ve never felt that there could be one “perfect converter” because interface needs significantly vary from one user to the next, but after reviewing Symphony I/O Mk II, my feelings have changed.”
“The Apogee Symphony I/O MkII offers no surprises. It’s an astounding converter with incredible detail, superlative specifications and 24/7 reliability. If you buy one, your recordings will undoubtedly step up in quality, and along with the superlative outputs, give your mixes every chance to reach a new zenith too. The price and ‘one-trick-pony’ nature of a converter like the Symphony Mk II position it within reach of only those who rate quality conversion very highly. For such people, the Symphony I/O Mk II will by no means disappoint.”
“This is not a budget piece by any means, but a professional tool made by a group of folks truly passionate about audio recording. The highlights for me were the highly usable touchscreen, unbelievably low latency, and the pristine headphone mix I was able to get”
“…It was like we upgraded the speakers. It was more real. I felt closer to standing in the room when the band played…But only within the context of a real project was I able to appreciate the magnitude of improvement – in realism, depth, and dynamics – that comes with the Symphony system. These converters will upgrade your recording in a significant way.”
“We’ve been really happy with Symphony I/O here at The Hangar, and I feel like it’s not only a good audio investment, but that I’ll likely still be using it in ten years, which is not something that you can say about a lot of digital hardware, as it tends to become obsolete quickly. But Apogee has always been a step or two ahead of the curve sonically, and Symphony I/O’s versatile architecture leaves a lot of room for future options, expansion, and upgrades. If you’re looking for a high- end, versatile converter system, you really need to consider it.”
“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.”
