Bullseye for Arrow
I've been going through a LOT of interfaces through the years. Starting with a PCI-based E-MU, onto the brilliant Impact Twin from T.C Electronic, to the not so great Scarlet from Focusrite, via the unstable and unreliable Apogee One and Duet. All before I finally landed in UAD-land and felt like home.
I chose the Arrow over the Apollo Twin mostly for the Thunderbolt 3 native support and also the portability via the bus-powering. This ironically turned out to be the only downside to the interface. The quality and stability of the Arrow is second to none. It never ever fails. BUT, the headphone amp is a little too weak. I work mostly in my bedroom studio and therefore mostly with headphones, and the Arrow just can't drive anything above my ATH-M40x with sufficient power. My DT 770 Pro 250 ohms and ATH-R70x's run out of headroom really quick with the Arrow.
But, I would still recommend this interface every day of the week, just be aware of the headphone amp.
