Being able to interact with the interface through the console app it installs is super amazing, especially when you're in the middle of a shoot and only have access to a mouse and you need to up the gain on someone's mic. VERY NICE!
It's a very premium product that I was very happy to display on my desk. It didn't get super hot, but definitely got warm to the touch. I love this thing so much.
Unfortunately, I had to return it because it didn't have enough inputs for me. You can only record 2 inputs, regardless of the 2 xlr and 1 line in on the device. line 1 takes over xlr 1 when something is plugged in. I had to spring up for the x4 which I love equally as well. I know it's a ton of money, but boy is it peace of mind knowing that the problem is never with my Apollo. I'd highly recommend you also sprout for the x4 if you have the money, so that you can easily grow and have something that easily fits on your desktop and looks good (as apposed to the x6 in nearby price range). If you see yourself as a one person band that sings and play guitar though, this will perfectly serve you. Just know that you'd have to add something like a piano via midi through garage band or logic pro which can suck if you love the sounds your roland keyboard makes :DDD
and once you are there, the market is divided by very few players, like UA, RME, Avid, and PreSonus, and you can certainly expect top-notch AD conversion from any of these. However, when it comes to value for money, an Apollo X is a steal. You get about the same 32 Bit AD DAC circuit used in much more expensive studio gear that easily sells for double or triple the price of an Apollo X.
Beyond the pristine audio quality, the UA plugins are, well, UA plugins. I don't even know what I would do without the Neve 1073 let alone the SSL400 or any of the other channel strip plugins. Let's face it, either you have the all money for the expensive studio gear or you get an Apollo X.
Yes, you need proper cables for the Apollo and for sure it makes a meaningful and audible difference, and yes Windows 10 is certainly less than stellar for Audio, and yes, UA could certainly include a Thunderbolt cable in the box, but you know what, the Apollo X is still an amazing piece of hardware and I would buy it any given day because the value and audio quality you get at that price level is just unbelievable. When you listen to the plain output for the first time, you may get a bit underwhelmed; However, just add any of the Chanel strips, a parametric EQ, or whatever plugins suit you and adjust whatever enhances the sound at hand and you will have a hard time to go back to anything less than what the Apollo X produces.
Apollo X truly means high-end studio quality in a small and affordable form factor.
Overall, very disappointed. For almost $1000, I should be able to use this device with no software, especially no kernel extensions. I would not recommend this product to anyone who plans on using it with a mac, as similar audio quality can be gotten from other audio interfaces without these drawbacks.

But as I plugged in the XLR cable into the port given at the back the speakers started giving loud hissing noise.
And as I turn on the 48V phantom power the hiss was even louder say about 5db.
Same happened with the second XLR port.
I checked with XLR cables 1 from Hawk and 2 from Neutrix(sonic plumber)
There is definitely defect in the XLR ports,maybe some sort of current leakage within the body of apollo twin X I received.
