Apogee’s Flagship - The Symphony I/O

Announced today on the Apogee website is the Symphony I/O, a modular converter system which is the result of Apogee’s 25 years of research and development and delivers a totally updated and optimized circuit design for next generation sound quality.


Modular design, scalable I/O architecture and future-proof connectivity to USB & Ethernet + all Digital Audio Workstations = a great long term sound investment. 

Symphony I/O, the top end:

Legacy Apogee
Symphony I/O builds upon the award-winning design approaches of Apogee’s X-Series* and Rosetta Series converters*, the Big Ben master clock and the Trak2 mic preamps. It also refines and updates these proven designs with fewer but more advanced components while optimizing their performance with efficient power distribution. These enhancements allow audio to travel through less circuitry, offering lower converter latency, more accurate clocking and even more transparency and clarity in your recordings.

*As of July 2010, Symphony I/O will replace AD-16X, DA-16X and Rosetta 800

Apogee Symphony I/O Overview:

  • Best sounding Apogee interface to date, with updated and optimized circuitry
  • Up to 32 channels of simultaneous analog and digital I/O per unit
  • Total I/O flexibility and scalability with 5 available Modules
  • Audio Interface Modes (AIM) allow you to quickly switch I/O between connected DAWS
  • Future-proof modular architecture
  • PCI, USB and Ethernet connectivity for emerging formats
  • Best cost per channel value of any high-end audio interface available

Analog design, the cornerstone of Apogee quality

Analog Design
Apogee’s engineers do not merely rely on specs and data sheets when selecting converter components, they listen. Each component is auditioned and carefully selected to best reflect the characteristics of the Apogee sound. Symphony I/O’s audio path design is elegant and efficient, incorporating the most advanced opamps that offer better performance than multiple parts used in previous designs.

This design improvement minimizes the audio path circuitry and maximizes sound quality. And in the tradition of the X-Series and Rosetta series, the entire audio path is DC coupled, resulting in ultra flat frequency response and extremely low phase error.
