Sound & Recording – Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Review

„Was die Aufnahme-Qualität betrifft, liegt das Apogee One ganz klar vorne. Selbst bei vollem Gain, der immerhin 8 dB über dem der Konkurrenten liegt, ist keinerlei Rauschen zu vernehmen. Für diese Leistung muss man zwar weit tiefer in die Tasche greifen, bekommt allerdings auch gleich ein hochwertiges, eingebautes Mikrofon dazu.“

Amazona – Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Review

„Das Apogee One Audiointerface stellt eine echte Bereicherung des Handheld Bereiches dar. In Sachen Zusammenarbeit, Optik und Haptik ausschließlich dem Apple Konzern zugewandt, schafft es Apogee, seine große Erfahrung in Sachen Wandlerqualität in das Produkt einfließen zu lassen.“

Audiofanzine – Apogee ONE Review

„While the sampling rate of the first version was limited to 48 kHz, this new version can presently handle up to 24 bits at 96 kHz. But even more interesting is the fact that it allows us to manage two inputs, which gives us many more possibilities than before: we can record the instrument and the mic inputs at the same time, or the instrument input and the internal mic, or both mics at the same time. To cut it short, apart from iOS compatibility, this is clearly the greatest evolution of the interface“

Men’s Journal – Apogee ONE Review

„Paired with some great headphones, the ONE makes a difference. We heard details in the rumbling bass line of St. Vincent’s “Digital Witness” that got lost on the CD tracks. Its DAC improves MP3 files and streamed music, too. Listening to the War on Drugs’ “Under the Pressure” on Spotify, we heard deeper bass and sharper cymbals compared to listening through the headphone jack of the iPhone 5S.“

Tone Audio Magazine – Hi-Fi Playback and Recording on the Go

„The sound from the ONE is absolutely stunning. It has no trouble driving the headphones well beyond my comfort level, doing so with plenty of headroom to spare. The ONE has a, dare I say it, ruler-flat response. Its performance is on par with some desktop DAC/amps that are many times more expensive…With the help of the ONE, I can listen to high-quality music files from my iPad – and it sounds great. It’s a no-brainer for audiophiles who travel a lot and don’t want to lug around their MacBook. Not a road warrior? Not a problem. The ONE also works great as an audio engine for a clean and simple rig on your bedroom nightstand – or anywhere.“
