I tried to upgrade to the newer Apogee Duet but was having so many issues with it muting on and off for no reason at all. I went back and forth with Apogee but they could not resolve the issue so I had to return it. However this older interface has never failed me. It feels indestructible. I have had it for several years now with absolutely no issues. I also like that it is compatible with the break out cable box. Great audio interface for small home studios and extremely portable.
I don't really need an interface until I get some studio monitors and I don't plan on buying some for a while. I guess any interface would do but i'd like something simple, small and fairly cheap. This would do I guess.
