I have an original Apollo (the new one was a friend's). We were at his place, so no side-by-side comparison. I thought it sounded great, but then, I don't hear any nasty midrange with mine.

I'll see if we have time to do a comparison the next time we get together, but time is short and it's usually about recording music, not comparing gear. Sure was nice to have the 8 mic pre's!

What sample rate were you using?
I don't think there is a MKII 1073 - We used the Unison 1073, the grey LA-2A (the new one), the Fairchild (collection), and the EMT140. We were at 44.1.
