Great portable interface
Szymon, 17.04.2018
I bought this interface to replace my Apollo One interface which I have sold due to the fact the breakout cable started falling apart and there was no dedicated monitor outputs.
Obviously there is a big differnece in price between Rode and Apollo but I must say I didn't expect this little Rode to be so good. First thing you notice when you hold it is the amazing build quality (I didn't know it's made in Australia) All solid metal enclousure! Another thing which suprised me is the weight of this little thing, it's much heavier than you may think which for me is a big adventage. Two plastic knobs feel very solid as well. Simply it's build like a tank. Bus powered with USB C cable (Good for new MBP users like me)
When it comes to actual sound quality I would rate it 4/5 just because monitor outputs are not giving me enough output to feed my studio monitors properly (Adam T7V)
Alternatively you can use headphone output which seems to be "louder". Other than that it's a amazing interface espescialy for the money. Highly recommended!
