    Apogee are more expensive, but does that make them better?

    Absolutely.

    Didn't you know? Everything that's more expensive is better. Geesh, where have you been?

    You're kidding, right?

    The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist...

    No, they're better because Apogee makes better convertors.

    In another post Massive Master classified converters like this...

    Reasonable - Here's where you get into the "real" stuff... Lucid, Mytek, Apogee, RME, Benchmark... More expensive, but this fits the "Good for the buck" category best. All are good performers and easily fit into a professional rig.

    After that, you get the really cool stuff... UAD, the higer end Apogee, Lavry (my personal favorite), Prism, etc. This is where the point of diminishing returns occurs - Every penny of better sound costs an additional ten bucks. Worth it for some, almost a waste for others.
    Note that Apogee falls into both the reasonable and into the really cool stuff, so perhaps this answers my question... the Mini-Me is about as inexpensive as the Apogee line gets.

    thats the first time i think i heard someone mention st audio in a way where they didnt ignore its existence or try to point people in the direction of maudio or echo or the others in that price range
