    Can Someone Clear Up My Questions About the Conversion on the UAD APOLLO QUAD...

    I just am wondering whether the currect BLACK Apollo Quad has the same A-D AND D-A as the more high priced rack units? Or is their best conversion only on those units?

    Thanks
    Tom

    I believe it's the same as the Apollo 8 but not the Apollo 16, which has better DAC's than any other model.

    That's strange. So, if you don't need 800 inputs, they assume the little guys don't need the best conversion
    Thx though!

    it has same AD and whether you can hear the difference in the DA or not seems a matter of conjecture or skip all that and buy a dbox or something like that.

    800 inputs. Waaay cool. Can you imagine the size of that desk? It would extend all the way out to, and through the live room.

    It's actually the other way around. Your twin has the same converters as the $3000 rack units! Only the 16mkII has the upgraded DA
