I bought the 16 last year soon after it was released, and I spent around 1400 bucks on plugins. The Apollo had been damaged in the factory and it arrived sealed, yet there was a gouge in the faceplate. They blamed shipping but the box was in perfect shape. They gave me a little voucher for plugins that I used but I was still pretty upset that I bought a new $3200+ that is damaged.
Then they put on a promotion that lets new users of the Apollo get a FREE thunderbolt card. I had been thinking about getting one but the price doesnt make sense. Its supposed to be a TB interface, but you have to spend $500 to get full use out of it. UA wont be getting another cent out of me until I get a TB card. If I could do it again I'd go Apogee.
