Is the Apogee PSX-100se the ultimate "analog" sounding converter?

I haven't heard one, but the description of the 100se sounds like what I need/want. Is there anything in this price range that would compete with the 100se for that "analog" sound? I'm not looking necessarily for a transparent converter, ala Mytek, but one that apparently does what the 100se does.

I know it's older technology, but isn't it a great technology worth keeping/buying?

I only need 2 channels, and this description sounds perfect. What do you all think?



"The end result noticed most by owners is improved sound quality, including better imaging, tighter bottom end and a smoother high mid range.

Special Edition listeners generally find that audio imaging is more clearly defined and sounds more tightly localized. Instruments sound more sharp and focused, while mixes have additional depth and spatiality. Sounds with powerful transients such as drums and percussion are presented with greater attack and realism, while low-frequency information is rendered with more confidence and fullness."

The Apogee Rosetta 200 sounds a LOT better in my experience, and does super cool sample rate conversion, etc.

$1700 or less new.

dont buy old converters, i say, unless you are on a tight budget
