AXR4 or Apollo UAD X6 for CUBASE Pro

Trying to decide between these two interfaces.

Based on online queries, the UAD interfaces seem to be way more popular, and the inclusion of hardware based plugins is enticing, but the convenience of only using CUBASE and not another mixer app is very attractive.

I typically only record two tracks at a time so high quality preamps and fast, stable performance within a Windows 10 CUBASE Pro 10.5 environment is most important to me.
