The Power of Apollo X

Elite-Class AD/DA Conversion

Furnished with elite-class 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion, the Apollo x6 offers crystal-clear high-resolution recording and mixing. Boasting ultralow distortion (-119 dB) and a dynamic range of 129 dB, it delivers appreciable value to music creators, record producers, and postproduction engineers.

Switchable Headroom Setting

The switchable headroom setting facilitates proper level-matching with various audio equipment, ensuring flexibility in your recording setup.

Versatile Inputs and Preamps

Featuring two XLR mic inputs and two 1/4" Hi-Z inputs with Unison integration, the Apollo x6 provides precise UAD emulations of classic analog preamps. The six 1/4" line-level inputs on the rear panel allow for easy patching of external mic preamps or direct outputs from a console.

Efficient Signal Optimization

With a switchable low-cut filter, pad, polarity inversion, 48V phantom power, and stereo linking on each preamp, optimize your incoming signals effortlessly using the Apollo x6's face buttons.

Expanded Recording Channels

Record up to 10 additional channels by connecting ADAT- and S/PDIF-equipped external preamps to the TOSLINK optical and S/PDIF coaxial input ports.

Comprehensive I/O and Monitoring

The Apollo x6 offers ADAT optical and S/PDIF coaxial outputs, enabling routing of up to 10 channels from your DAW to various external devices. The BNC wordclock input and output jacks ensure accurate clock sync.
