Front Panel Touchscreen with Comprehensive Control
All of Symphony I/O Mk II’s essential input and output settings can be accessed from the front panel touchscreen. Change your input selection, monitoring levels, mic pre gain or calibrate your Symphony I/O Mk II to match the levels of the other analog gear in your system.
A high-resolution TFT display delivers all the visual feedback critical for recording and monitoring. Without looking at your computer, Symphony I/O Mk II lets you see metering for up to 64 channels of I/O, 32 IN x 32 OUT – signal levels, polarity, muting, phantom power and Soft Limit.
Dynamic Temperature Control
Symphony I/O Mk II features advanced controls to keep the unit running at an ideal temperature, ensuring the highest level of performance and reliability. The new temperature controls are complemented by an improved fan and chassis ventilation design, which allows adequate component cooling to occur quietly.
Apogee Engineering Advantage
For over 30 years, Apogee has consistently redefined the state of the art in digital audio hardware design. We never rest on the laurels of our previous award-winning products – we’re constantly evaluating the latest technological developments in analog and digital components, platform connectivity and user interface advances to design better performing, intuitive products that meet the needs of any audio professional.
As an example of the Apogee Advantage, Symphony I/O Mk II uniquely employs a fully differential op-amp as a fundamental building block throughout its analog circuits. The very latest iterations of this technology offer astounding performance – vanishingly low noise and distortion, lightning-fast slew rate and out-sized current output capability, all in a power efficient and small package. These components offer performance that’s orders of magnitude superior to what’s found in most competitive audio interfaces, and are an important factor in Symphony I/O Mk II’s ability to offer up to 32 channels of state-of-the-art conversion in one 2U package at an incredible price per channel value.
Audiophile-Grade Headphone Monitoring with Constant Current Drive
Symphony I/O Mk II features a single ultra high-fidelity DAC and headphone amplifier featuring Apogee’s Constant Current Drive technology, first introduced in the Apogee Groove. This unique approach to headphone amplification dynamically compensates for the nonlinearities of any connected headphones, providing massive power while maintaining extremely low distortion and linear frequency response.
