Apogee has just released the new Symphony I/O MKII Connect 8 series! Apogee has essentially combined the now discontinued, 8x8 and 8x8MP modules into a single module; also available in 3 complete systems. This enables engineers to place more AD/DA converters and mic preamps on a single module board, allowing even more I/O capability with the second/available module slot on your Symphony interface!
The new Connect 8 series features 8x8 Analog I/O which is selectable between balanced line and microphone preamps. That’s the big point here with the new Connect 8 modules. You’re getting microphone preamps as well as line inputs from the same module. The Connect 8 also features 8x8 digital AES/Optical I/O. With the Symphony I/O MkII Connect 8 audio interface, you’re getting Symphony-quality sound with robust, high-performance AD/DA converters and Apogee’s Advanced Step Gain Architecture™ mic preamps. Each mic preamp is digitally controlled with selectable 48v phantom power, soft limit and phase invert.
Apogee offers three complete systems for the new Connect 8 series. The only difference between them is connectivity. You can buy the Connect 8 system configured for Thunderbolt, Dante + Pro Tools HD, or Pro Tools HD. The Connect 8 Module is also available if you already own a Symphony I/O interface and want to expand your I/O capability.
