Once Apollo used 1 capacitor, Apollo has no reason to sound like UA2192.
By the way, UA2192 is said it loses high freq and lose reverb.
Anyway, Why isn't there anybody who listened to Apollo yet?
I thought some of you have sneaked into factory or office of UA.
Some of you could have had some something with president’s secretary of UA.
I have to say I may be disappointed.

Listen guys... I have owned dozens of UA 2192's. I have used them to record hundreds of projects (some Grammy nominated, and winning).
Who is this person that you are referring to when you say "it is said"?? Because both of the things you are saying are utter nonsense!!! I know GS has become a place where people simply read and regurgitate without any actual hands on knowledge of the gear they are talking about it...... but if you think that's me.... Google me. It's not.
I stand by what I originally said about the 2192. I was told by a UA employee, the Apollo will lack the class a analog section of the 2192 (for obvious cost reasons), but that the converters are actually a step up.
Once again, please keep in mind... converters are the actual device that turn Voltages (how audio travels in analog after being created by a transducer-----a microphone) and amplified (by what most call a preamplifier) into Pulse Code Modulation (the digital code that computers and other digital audio devices can understand). These devices are usually built second party and how well they sound/work depends on a great many variables. Like... the analog path to and from, and most importantly how they are clocked, etc..
So... if you prefer to get your info from someone passing along urban legend that they read on a forum somewhere from someone who read it on another forum somewhere, and so on, and so on, and so on... then ok. Or... you can take it from people that have actually used the 2192.
