Re: Prove to me the new Apogee Duet 2 is better quality sound than Duet 1

Seems that they are saying they've done quite a bit to improve the audio quality.


What's New?
- Completely redesigned mic preamps and converters

Better sound quality.
A difference you will hear.
Using the very latest technology and drawing upon the experience of developing Apogee’s new flagship audio interface, Symphony I/O, Apogee engineers rebuilt Duet to achieve a difference you can hear.

From the mic preamps to the AD/DA converters, Duet 2 offers the best of everything Apogee, allowing you to capture your audio with even more clarity and dimension than the original Duet. This is professional sound quality you can take anywhere.

Smooth, detailed world-class mic preamps
The Duet 2 mic preamps feature a new design, all new components and seamless click-free transitions as the gain increases and decreases throughout the incredible range of 0-75dB. This unprecedented feature allows you to dial in the perfect level while delivering ultra-low noise and smooth, crisp detail. Most importantly, the Duet 2 mic preamps are optimized for any sound source, so no matter what you are recording you’ll capture every detail.

Pristine, next generation AD/DA converters
Much like the mic preamps, the Duet 2 AD/DA converters are an all-new design and deliver the purest recordings and best listening experience possible. This totally new design takes the personal studio to the next level with state-of-the-art components and next-generation conversion.

It seems fairly clear that they are saying the key audio electronics have been redesigned and improved. Of, we are mostly talking a few per cent improvement - you're unlikely to want to throw away your existing Duet and get a Duet2 and notice a world of difference. However, improvements are improvements, and presumably the original Duet will be discontinued.

Or are you saying that doing better, and improving your product is pointless in general? Or are you just calling them liars? :shrugs:
