Rosetta 800:Are there differences between the 96K/192K other than the sample rates?

Its very hard to tell any difference between 96-192k, whereas there is a MUCH bigger difference from 44.1-48 and 88.2-96K with a converter that has a well designed power supply and analog input stage like the Rosetta. My opinion is that there's no point to 192K with a GREAT converter, I-M-E. It just wastes hard drive space. 96K makes sense to me, but 88.2 makes even more sense mathematically for hi resolution that will fold down to [still high resolution] 16 Bit 44.1 for digital distribution.

Either way, the Rosetta is a great converter, that gets even better when you clock it from the c777.

Thanks Adam, but my question pertained to OTHER upgrades to the electronics when Apogee moved from the 96K version to the 192K version. Was anything else changed/updated? In other words, is the only difference between these versions the fact that the 192K version can achieve higher sample rates?

no that I know of. I believe the only difference is 96k-192k sample rates.
