Well, you pays your money you takes your choice. I upgraded from a UAD-1 to a UAD-2 solo because, for two hundred quid, I didn't want to lose the investment in UAD plugs I've made over the years and also the solo gives 2 and 1/2 as much power of the old UAD 1. And of course, they do take a little load off the CPU, which, regarding the solo, isn't really much by todays standard.
The plugins are great, no doubt about it but if I was starting from scratch I probably would give UAD a miss unless I could afford a quad, or at least a duo.
Just my 2 pence
