The otherside of the coin is there are thousands of users Outhere who will swear by UAD.
However the UAD plugins are not better than native plugins they are on par, this is proven by a lot of native plugins now available on the UAD platform.
Lets face it UAD plugins are made on a computer before they are ported over to the card format, so anything on UAD can be made native.
and yes reducing the drain on CPU power is good, But you can buy a powerful PC for less than a UAD Quad card which i find rather odd, with todays powerful computers i think the card is a glorified dongle.
Again these are all my personal views after 10 years of using UAD, but there plenty of fanboys outhere who would happily put me in my place.
