So far so good
I own an Apollo and love the console app. I got the Arrow for my laptop and so far it has worked perfectly. The sound is flawless. Perfect for a simple or smaller recording setup!
Universal Audio Arrow
Remarkable! I love it!

Easy to use and great sound
I used an M-Box v3 for years and had to find another converter after updating to Catalina. I'm an audio engineering professor and the Arrow has options that I haven't even been able to dig into yet that might be great for remote teaching.
Great audio interface !!!
Best audio interface for the price !!! I love it !!!
My Apollo to road!
The Arrow sounds great and is A all in one solution on my desk that does all a need it to do.
COOL FOR BEGINNERS
DECENT INTERFACE BUT NOTHING COMPARED TO TWIN X OR APOLLO X6 IN ANY REGARDS.
First UA product and worth every cent. Flawless for my use of it.
Just like the Apollo but better
Why better? Because it is smaller, faster, bus-powered and less expensive. There are a couple things I wish for though, an on/off switch and the ability to stack it with the Apollos I already have.

Gratamente sorprendido por la calidad del interface. Minima e inapreciable latencia y una gran calidad. Muy sencillo de usar. Muy recomendable.
Little issue I need help
I love he device but I can't get rid of the static sound it gives during playback of any file. How do I fix that issue? I'm sure its a few buttons to press and features to switch but how do I stop this noise?
Why didn’t I buy that long time before??
I have owned and used several desk top audio interfaces over the years. I ordered this one because I found I most often only need one or two inputs at a time, I liked the idea of a bus powered interface and a much cleaner set up on my desk. Turns out it sounds great, l the plug ins are really fantastic and it integrates seamlessly with Logic ProX. I miss having a second headphone jack once in a while but that's an easy problem to solve. I highly recommend this interface for anyone who wants a simple bus powered set up our who does most of their recording alone with one mic and an instrument. Singer songwriter's bedroom stdio geeks and the like should all love this unit.
Not for Windows
Great build and features I wanted this to work for Windows. I spent a week and a half jumping thru hoops trying to make this work in Windows 10. I even bought a laptop from there suggested and approved list. I could not get rid of the crackle in playback and recording. I know this works great on the mac platform. Just couldn't get to work on Windows. I don't think the company is really vested in the Windows platform. When I asked tech support to give me a specific Windows Laptop I could get that would work they just referred me to list in which I had already used without success. I believe the list was just outdated. Bottom I believe it's a great product with great features just not for Windows.
Arrow - Fantastic Sound from a small Buss Powered Device.
The build quality is just top - Bus Powered via Thunderbolt 3 - No messy AC cables - Small fits right on the desk - portable - Just a brilliant entry device into the UAD world.
Conversion is top notch, really Brought my Axe Fx II to life.
everything is good
Simple, Robust, Useful
Simple design, well constructed with the essential controls at your finger tips. Easy way to extend your Apollo set up. It runs hot, but that is typical of the UA inyrtfaces. Excellent value for money.
Great Sound, Clunky Interfaces
The sheer audio quality, the latency (or lack of), the native preamp emulations, are all breathtaking for a TB3-bus-powered little box, and, at that price, mind-boggling. Buy this, no-brainer, buy it.
Having said that, I'm quite annoyed with the design of the Console app and the Meter & Control Panel. The fact that the mixer has a skeuomorphic design is fine, but please don't reinvent the wheel with the app's user interface. We're already using the OS UI that we've configured to our liking. No need to impose a dark-grey-on-darker-grey aesthetic on the user, with a menu and the settings hidden behind various push-buttons, where you have to click again for each function. Aargh. Some of us don't want a different workflow and non-standard window architecture in every app.
What I would like: The pure mixer elements in a mixer window, configurable either as a desk layout, or as one super-slim channel&bus&master strip, to squeeze next to the DAW window. All the other settings (including the Meter & Control Panel settings) in a multi-tab settings window, all the view options in a standard menu bar View menu, all the edit options in the Edit menu, File, Help, ... You get what I mean. And the added option to make the mixer a float window. That would be heaven. Yes please.
Apart from the interface, the hardware is amazing. Clean, lovely, portable, great value. Buy it.
