Apogee has announced a time-limited offer for owners of its Duet FireWire and Ensemble FireWire interfaces to upgrade to the USB or Thunderbolt version of each interface and claim a free Apogee Groove or ONE for iPad & Mac.
Following the release of Mac OSX El Capitan, and Apogee’s
decision to cease support for FireWire on this new version of the operating
system, Apogee is offering its FireWire users the opportunity to upgrade to the
Duet for iPad & Mac, Quartet for iPad & Mac (both feature USB connectivity)
or Ensemble Thunderbolt and, by returning their FireWire interface to Apogee,
will receive an Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac or Apogee Groove DAC &
Headphone Amp completely free!
This offer is only available until the end of October, and
only purchases of new products from authorised Apogee UK dealers will be
eligible for a free ONE or Groove. Once a new Duet, Quartet or Ensemble has
been purchased, end users simply visit http://www.apogeedigital.com/firewire-trade-in
and fill in their details in order to arrange the return of their FireWire
interface to Sonic Distribution in the UK. Once the unit has been received by
Sonic, the end user will then be sent an Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac or
Apogee Groove DAC & Headphone Amp free of charge.
Ensemble FireWire and Duet FireWire users updating to Mac OS X El Capitan can expect the same performance as with previous OS versions. Although Apogee is ending official support of these products on OS X El Capitan and beyond, they will continue to make the current installer packages available on their website.
If you purchase an Apogee Duet or Quartet, you will be
eligible to receive a free Apogee Groove, if you purchase an Ensemble
Thunderbolt, you are eligible to receive either an Apogee ONE for iPad &
Mac or an Apogee Groove.
