Apogee Symphony vs Quartet Single-Channel Preamps
Old 20th December 2016
Apogee Symphony vs Quartet

So I owned a BLA tweakhead modded Digi 002 rack that just sounded beautiful. But because of mac updates the 002 just became too much of a pain. So I purchased an Apogee Symphony (1st gen) 2x6 which just sounds fantastic. (Slightly bigger low end and smooth top end but not as wide as the BLA mod) Anyway, I planned to expand the apogee with modules but since then I have moved and am no longer planning to expand at this point.

SO, I am thinking of selling the Symphony and considering the Quartet. Now, I watched the Apogee video with Matt Chamberlain 4 mic set up using the Quartet and it sounded great. But of course it is Matt Chamberlain but still…

Can anyone with experience using Symphony and Quartet comment on this. Would I notice a huge difference in the AD/DA department? Would I miss the Symphony? Anything equivalent/better(but not apollo) for under $2000? I am still using a MAC PRO 2009 which has no thunderbolt so that is not an option at the moment.

I am just looking for some insight that might sway me to pick one up and try it out.

JUST FOR INSIGHT THIS IS MY SETUP CURRENTLY: SCA N72 and A12, Warm Audio 76, Warm Audio EQP-WA, Symphony, RNDI and MAC PRO (2009…still rocking)

Thanks in advance.
