This is STRAIGHT from Universal Audio on their Facebook page...
"There seems to be some misunderstanding regarding our Apollo audio interface's Thunderbolt capabilities, resulting from a (now deleted) post on another audio company's Facebook page. To be 100% clear, Apollo's Thunderbolt I/O card was co-developed with Intel, and is absolutely providing "true" Thunderbolt. It is far beyond a simple hub. You can think of Thunderbolt as a big "pipe" — one that can carry data streams including PCIe, FireWire, USB, HDMI, DisplayPort, and more. The fastest and highest-bandwidth of these data streams is PCIe — which is exactly what we've implemented in the Apollo Thunderbolt I/O card.

I hope that puts that nonsense that was on BLA's Facebook page (which they deleted) about the Apollo not having a "true" Thunderbolt connection to rest.
Like I said in my previous post, watch the NAMM video on the Apollo where the INTEL REPRESENTATIVE explains the Thunderbolt connection on the Apollo... Not A BLA rep.
