    Apogee Symphony I/O 8x8 Configuration
    I have been an Apogee user for I would say 15 years for sure. I started off with the Ensemble and the Big Ben and wanted to up my sound quality and how I did things so went out and bought the Symphony I/O 8x8 configuration . I have had this unit for a few years and never did a review on it because the room I was in was not treated so my review would have not been very accurate. Well it is treated now so here goes. First off Apogee and Apple are like peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I have both in my studio. I have always said the this two products are like streaming audio, works very very well. The quality of sound is way up there. What I hear coming from my acoustic guitar mic only and then through an acoustic amp is what I hear coming from my monitors. Apogee has always been number one in my book. The nice part about the Symphony system it is modular. As your studio grows so can the Symphony system. I have never ever had a problem with any of the Apogee products I have owned. If you own a piece of gear that is not in your recording desk and is in the shop getting fixed best look at Apogee. Pay for what ya get , Apogee delivers.
