I have tried my UCX and my best friend's Mytek in a treated room with the same speakers, two fabolous Geithan.
I can say only about DA converter, i have not yet compared AD.
The difference is very notable just at the first note, about clarity, detail, stereo image accuracy.
Listen to classical music, a good recording, and the difference is from night to day.
other thing to my ear RME converters they are not too neutral and detail is poor.
I use RME because their rock solid drivers. I use in real time softwares as csound and max, and it is phenomenal. So great card, poor converters, at least i speak about acoustic music.
i find mytek conversion mastering grade.
Which Mytek do you have? The 8x192 has a new ADC upgrade for $400 that's supposed to trump even the Stereo192 ADC.

Chebon, the Director of Marketing says he prefers tracking through the new ADC upgrade of the bx192. Has new capacitors, Smooths out the mids, has less artifacts, cleaner, etc.
