Edirol UA-4FX vs. Apogee Ensemble

hey, I know this is a question with a clear answer, but I have to ask it anyway. I've been producing for 5 or 6 years, have invested in everything other than an audio interface because I'm working with windows so I wanted to wait until I made the switch to Apple before upgrading to what seem to be the clear cut best audio interface (apogee ensemble). Although I have yet to make the switch to a Mac, I was wondering how much of an improvement it's going to make in terms of quality, specifically for the purposes of mixing and mastering. Thanks!

Never used the UA-4FX, but I did upgrade to a Ensemble from a Firepod a couple years ago and there was a definitely a noticeable improvement. The pres are better and you will probably hear a difference with the improved AD/DA. Everything seamed much clearer through the Ensemble. Great unit that I bet will be a nice improvement over what you have now. Although the person using the gear makes the biggest difference.
