Vintage King Offers Trade-In Program For New Apollo Interfaces

Posted on February 22, 2016 by Eric There have been 14 comment(s)


Since the initial release of the Apollo Thunderbolt, the pro audio world has raved about the interface's sound and ability to streamline a user's workflow in the studio. With the recent creation of the next generation of Apollo Thunderbolts, Universal Audio has once again changed the game, improving the interface based on quality customer feedback.

To make life easier for Apollo owners who want to upgrade to the new interfaces, we have created an exclusive trade-in program*. We will be accepting the Apollo Duo, Apollo Duo with Thunderbolt card, Quad, Apollo Quad with Thunderbolt card, Apollo 16 (Silver) and Apollo 16 (Silver) with Thunderbolt card. Using the credit from trading-in these units, customers will be able to upgrade to the Apollo 8 Duo, Apollo 8 Quad, Apollo 8P Quad and Apollo 16 (Black).

To explain why the new Apollos are leading the charge of audio interfaces, we went straight to the source, Universal Audio. Check out the exclusive video below featuring UA's Director of Product Management Lev Perrey, as he explains the Apollo's upgraded converters, monitor functions, connectivity and more.

    So the UA trade in does not include the Appollo Twin. Does this mean I got the lowest end of the Apollo range?

    We were wondering if this was a free upgrade or not. I am guessing the upgrade from the quad to the 8p might be more expensive. If so, we might just consider the normal Apollo 8 Quad.

    We got the Apollo Quad, with the 4 mic pre's, about a year ago. It works great, and has done everything we needed it to. However if there is a possibility we can upgrade to the 8p, for 8 mic preamps, that would be a huge and beneficial upgrade.

    Thank you for getting back to us!

    Hey Josh, the upgrade isn't free, but we can give you a great deal if you do want to upgrade from the Apollo Quad to the 8P. It will be more costly to go with the 8P, but you're right, it is a big step forward and can really help your studio space.

    Trading in a rack-mount Apollo will get you the best savings on upgrading to a new Apollo interface, but we do except gear trades of all shapes and sizes. Feel free to fill out the form and someone from our sales team will let you know the trade value of your Apollo Twin.
