UAD Apollo vs. Antelope Audio Discreet - GO!

I'm looking to upgrade my current soundcard (RME FireFace UC) and am mostly interested in the best sound quality - converters, clock/jitter, etc. Who has experience using both the latest Apollo X generation and Antelope Audio gear? Their Discreet 4 looks very appealing as I've heard their word clock is one of the best in the industry, and the D/A is supposed to be equally good - which should give me a major upgrade when using software instruments. But the Apollo has the benefit of the UAD processing built-in. I should say I have a very old UAD-2 Satellite Duo (FW version) so if I get the Antelope I could continue using this, but of course it's nice to have it all-in-one. Thoughts?

The Antelope Discrete is an all in one with all the following:

Discrete 4 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which is accessible in any DAW via the AFX2DAW Plugin.

Does that mean that now their plugins don't have to be routed through their mixer anymore? That was the case last I heard but I haven't kept up on their developments.
