A difference you will hear
From the mic preamps to the AD/DA converters and the clocking, Quartet is best-in-class and cutting-edge Apogee technology. With components carefully selected in critical listening tests and a highly efficient circuit design, Quartet was built by Apogee engineers to make a difference you can hear.
Pristine, next generation
Quartetäó»s AD/DA converters are designed to deliver the purest recordings and best listening experience possible. Quartetäó»s efficient circuitry and state-of-the-art components provide a simplified signal path resulting in incredibly transparent recordings.
Smooth, detailed world-class
Much like the AD/DA converters, Quartetäó»s mic preamps feature the latest components and offer 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, either with the controller knob or from within software, while delivering ultra-low noise and smooth, crisp detail. Quartetäó»s mic pres are suitable for all dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones, allowing you to capture any sound without compromise.
Quartet is equipped with 4 combination input connectors (XLR and 1/4äó?) for connecting microphones, guitars and keyboards or your favorite external mic preamps, compressors and EQs.
Quartet also includes 8 channels of digital input via 2 optical connections (ADAT/SMUX) for connecting an additional analog-to-digital converter such as Apogeeäó»s Ensemble.
Quartetäó»s 6 balanced 1/4äó? TRS outputs offer an impressive range of possibilities. Listen and compare stereo mixes on up to three sets of speakers.
Quartet provides Word Clock OUT for synching an external A/D converter to Apogeeäó»s superior clocking technology.
Quartet provides a single USB MIDI connection for your CoreMIDI compatible keyboard, synth, or DJ
