it's pretty cool that they took the time to come up w/ a solution for their older products, unlike some other company i can think of. it's nice to know that if you spend the fairly hefty amount of cash on apogee, that you'll be able to enjoy unsing it while technology around it moves forward. as opposed to 'instant obsolescence'

Has anyone used/demo'd thunderbolt audio devices yet? j/w what your initial reactions are.?
