Carrie and the team excel once more! On price, efficiency and speed of delivery. 4 days door to door while local suppliers advised it could take a month to get stock and cost a hundred dollars more.
Apollo is a great interface with some great flexibility. As we all know, a musician who is bored and has the cash will upgrade anything. This Card fits and works perfectly and now I have one less cable to plug in. My life is complete!
