I'm not sure they would've "moved me" as easily if I were struggling to stand behind a more elaborate DJ rig.

The Universal Audio Apollo is an interesting audio interface in that it combines input/output functionality along with built-in DSP processing. That in itself is not unique, but being able to provide input monitoring with multiple plug-ins instantiated with virtually no latency is.
