Very Good Product

08.02.2017
I'm really happy with the new sound card. Sound quality is amazing.
The control panel is easy to use and has a cool interface. It does crash from time to time, but it doesn't make the soundcard stop.

Overall it's perfect for a small home-studio :)

Best quality in the price range!

WOZS, 13.05.2018
I bought the item 24 for use in the home studio. To be honest I did not expect a big difference to my old Scarlett 2i2, but the Element 24 convinced me especially with the output quality. Everything about monitors and headphones sounds much more detailed. It should be noted that great emphasis was placed on the quality of the headphone output, which also operates headphones with very high impedance easily.

Apogee's excellent integration with macOS is incomparable to competing products and, despite the lack of rotary encoders, interacts seamlessly with the interface through the software. I prefer control over the software as it is much more practical and adds to the rugged and high quality interface design.

In addition, the previously unused DSP chip will soon be used by the DualPath FX Rack Plugin. Although I could not test it yet, I wanted to mention it briefly, because it is a coveted feature that is hardly talked about.

CONCLUSION:
For the price, in my opinion, there is nothing that comes to the quality (both of the processing and the sound). Clear purchase recommendation!
