Not the smallest, but the sound and build quality are pretty much as good as I expected. Except for the headphone output sound quality, which is absolutely abysmal. The surface material is prone to scratches, so unless you keep the plastic on it, you'll get a lot of those.
This thing is sturdy, you can adjust the sound of the monitor to hear your DAW & vocals clearly through the device while mixing with your phantom power microphone!
I recommend it really nice good quality excellent for every thing don’t waist your money in Apollo or anything else this is the one.
You are not going to beat this DI for the price. It is very quiet and well made, has a ton of features and come with software. I am very pleased with purchase.
Great audio interface. I had some issues with playback from my computer (Spotify in particular). However, later I figured how to fix it - make sure that sample rate is 44.1kHz, and Spotify works fine.
