LavryBlue or Rosetta 800 Digital Converters

LavryBlue or Rosetta 800

I've look around for this comparison and can't seem to find it. So I'm wondering is the Larvy that much better then the Rosetta? Seeing how I can get the Rossetta wich has 8 channels of A/D D/A for cheaper still then just two channels of the Larvy. Which I would only assume means the Larvy is in a much higher league then the Rosetta. Is this correct? My only Converting experience is with the 002, which I will soon change! Also as I'm sure you all know the Rosetta has Dithering as well. Please shed some light.

Lots of threads on the Lavry's around here......

I have a Rosetta 800 and it works fine for tracking and mixing. Its clocked from a 16X

If clarity is what you're after then go with Lavry, on the other if you want a converter with that analog interpretation(smeared sound) then go with the Rosetta 800. Don't get me wrong quite few people enjoy the Apogee sound. I'm a Lavry man myself coming from Apogee.

Yes I realize this, I've probably read 90% of the posts on both pieces a gear. But never found a Vs. post.
My Concern is I need 4 channels and 4 channels of the larvy will be about 5000CDN, while 8 of the Rosetta I can get for 2550. I have no problem investing the extra 2450 for a much better representation of sound. But if the difference is slight and all I will hear is a small coloration(that a lot of people don't seem to mind) it seems like I should get the Rosetta and invest the 2450 in some better comps or something... Unless of course any extra money I invest in better analogue gear, their benefits will be lost on the Rosetta.

The Rosetta 800 is an excellent unit, save your cash for something else. Lavry Blue is nothing special to my ears.
