Elite audio conversion with new HEXA Core processing and surround sound monitoring.
Built on UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo x16 distinguishes itself with the widest dynamic range and lowest THD+N available on any interface in its class.

In addition, Apollo x16 features optimized level compatibility with professional +24 dBu gear, as well as an integrated monitor controller and a built-in talkback mic.
