the Apogee has this awesome warmth, kinda hazy but actually sounds nice to me. I like lots of clarity but more so, I like coloration. The 192 sounds thinner and cleaner
I much prefer how Apogee makes their converters sound
the HD I/O is very, very nice, I like making records with them. They kill the old 192's by a long mile,
but the Apogee's make love to my ears,
that's just how I am hearing it...
That's exactly how I hear the old 8000, but for some reason the Symphony doesn't make as much love to my ears. It certainly doesn't hurt either, but the 8000 has a truly musical euphonic effect which the Symphony can't match although providing more real estate. To me.
