    Qualified Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapters

    The following Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapters have been tested for compatibility with Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt.

    Note: The adapter connects between the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port on the computer and the Thunderbolt-equipped Universal Audio product.

    Startech Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter (Product ID: TBT3TBTADAP)
    Kanex Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter (Product ID: K170-1051-BK6I)
    Apple* Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter (Product ID: MMEL2AM/A)

    Qualified Adapter Notes

    *The Apple adapter is incompatible with hot-plugging the adapter into the computer’s USB-C port. However, the adapter is compatible with hot-plugging the Thunderbolt cable into the adapter.
    The qualified Thunderbolt 3 adapters are compatible with connections to external Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 devices.

    I have the same problem: Apple USB-C adapter with Dell XPS 15 doesn't work. Did you manage to work? If yes, with which adapter?

    Thank you!

    Like to know that also... Apple adapter doesn't appear to work on my Dell Prescision 7510 laptop either.
    I have only been trying it with my OWC Helios enclosure so far. Haven't had a chance try my Apollo SF with TB1 card.

    OMG this is getting expensive. So I do need

    - Startech USB 3.1 C to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter
    - AND a Thunderbolt 2 Cable

    I just ordered the 8 Quad because I like the Quad Satellite for free offer. I don't want to switch to Apple, so I also ordered a HP x360 Spectre (Kaby Lake) with 2 USB-C Thunderbolt Ports.
    Hope this setup will work well.
    Windows 10 - HP Spectre x386 i7500U, 16 GB RAM; Apollo 8 QUAD; Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 Connector (StarTechcom)
