  • High-Speed USB 2.0 Mac Audio Interface
  • High-Quality Apogee AD/DA Converters
  • Four Analog Inputs with Mic Preamps
  • Monitor Control for Up to 3 Speaker Sets
  • ADAT/SMUX Digital Inputs
  • MIDI Input (USB-A Type Connector)
  • Six Balanced Analog 1/4" Line Outputs
  • Independent 1/4" Stereo Headphone Output

The Apogee Quartet lets you connect up to four mics, instruments, keyboards or line inputs - plus, you can plug in your MIDI controller or keyboard. Quartet is expandable, too, with up to eight digital inputs via Lightpipe. You can mix everything in stereo, and monitor through up to three sets of speakers - or even in in 5.1 surround. Designed to be the center of your modern Mac-based studio, Quartet will help you take your projects to the next level.

Quartet's four microphone preamplifiers incorporate cutting-edge technology, giving you seamless gradation throughout their incredible 75dB gain range. This lets you dial in your ideal level with the main controller knob (or from within software), while enjoying amazingly low noise and stunning, lustrous detail. Quartet's mic preamps play nicely with all dynamic, condenser and ribbon mics, letting you capture audio without compromise.

Much like its mic pres, the Quartet's AD/DA converters are the result of Apogee's no-compromise design, giving you the best possible audio and monitoring quality. Quartet's advanced circuitry and state-of-the-art components deliver a streamlined signal path.
