Apogee ONE

Recommended Posts

for $250 it will probably beat the snot out of stuff in the $200-400 category but I'd still save my paper route money and get the duet. It would be cool for on the go macbook listening as it seems much more compact than the duet.

Netbook running leopard and the apogee ONE :)

could be a great portable/college rig for under $700 all in

The built-in mic is nice. I wonder how good it is.

There's a video on apogee's site of ozomatli doing a recording with one, check it out.

I wonder if the internal DAC is as good as the DUET?

well it is most likely different given that the duet is 24/96 capable but I am sure they did a great job with it.

I don't think that necessarily follows, it could just be a USB driver choice. All current dacs can do 24/96, so it is probably just the USB reciever.

Actually, I've seen a couple come out that don't -- surprisingly. (HRT MusicStreamer being the one example I can think of -- I think the other was on here [head-case] somewhere.) So the ONE can't? Fail. I'll pass. Too bad it's black.

I was just talking about the dac chips. I'd be shocked if apogee chose to use a dac chip that didn't support 24/96. I'm guessing (and that's all it is at this point, a guess), that the dac portion of the circuit is the same as the duet, it's just that the usb chipset is 16/48 instead of 24/96 to simplify implementation.

Oh, okay, yeah, pretty much all current DAC chips can do 24/96 (isn't that what you said?), I see what you're saying now.

Looks like a great little swiss army knife, and it would be a good price if I already had a Mac. A reference quality built-in mic is a neat idea.
