TubeSoundJim, 22.05.2017
I use the satellite in my proffesional studio in Athens.
I had the previous version which was the sattellite quad core Firewire.
With the firewire one, i had speed problems as the increase of the plug ins, so if the cpu of the unit was 100% for example i had delay problems, even if i had the delay compensation on, in my daw (which happend to be Avid's Pro Tools 11.
Pros:

Now back to the Octo core Thunderbolt satellite, all i can say i'ts perfect!! When i hit the switch button to turn in on within a few seconds it's clocked with the system (Host indicator on the satelite) and runs perfectly without any issues or delay problems beacuse of the thunderbolt technology, not to mention the headroom i have because of the eight cores, which means that if i full the eight cores and i still have problems on my mix, then sure the satellite it's not the case. Great features such as 2 thunderbolt ports for daisy chain with other uad thunderbolt devices makes it very user friendly and gives me lots of options.
Cons:
I can't find any cons except that is a bit pricey.

A great unit for any professional studio without any issues!

Powerfull addition to your UAD network

Gregzor, 27.06.2017
If you are like me, and you like plugins and like to have headroom in your workflow working with UAD plugs, this is a perfect upgrade. Might aswell go the extra mile to get those 4 extra processors compared to a quad unit.

The unit itself is smaller then I expected but looks & feels great. Sturdy & clean.

The sides can vent quite a bit of heat so make sure you place it somewhere with space to breath.

Also if you are buying this to complement your apollo twin interface, you have too route the thunderbolt cable from your apollo twin to your sattelite, then to your workstation.
So make sure to have long enough thunderbolt cables to connect everything.

Only thing negative I could say about it is that it doesn't come with a thunderbolt cable.
