I haven't heard the rosetta, but a over 10 year old piece being better than the X line as far as D/A strikes me as kind of ridiculous considering that was the main selling point of the X line.

I have read instances of people preferring the X to Lynx Aurora mk1, Avid hd i/o and MOTU as far as D/A. So I don't think anyone can confidently say Rosetta 800 is an "upgrade" as far as DA to the X
