-Your description of the sound quality of Symphony is quite unusual. Never heard anyone make those claims. And there are quite a lot of users out there. Wonder if you really heard a Symphony.
Had three recent albums in for mastering recorded using the Apogee Symphony.
All of em had a slightly closed, narrow and over cozy feel to them.
One of the albums had a couple tracks recorded before the recording eng got the symphony.
They sounded more open and were instantly easier to to work with at my end.
40 employees world wide is not that small for a pro audio converter co.
Are you talking direct employees?
I design for a leading guitar amp company and we have less direct employees than that.
I'm just not a personal fan of the Symphony sound.
I have other mix eng friends that have tried them and agree with my comments.
I also totally understand the current situation with components, etc.
I am, on the other hand, a big fan of the older, Dan Lavry designed Apogees!
