Analog-to-digital converter chips


I just read about different ADC architectures like for instance the fifth order delta-sigma ADC and became interested in knowing in more detail what chips they use in Apogee and RME converters, to get a better understanding of on what kind of level the ADC arhitecture is on commercial converters like the Apogee Rosetta 800 and the RME Fireface 800 and how they compare. These chip manufacturers seem to be the big ones in the league:

Cirrus Logic
Texas Instruments (Burr-Brown)

So have any of you opened your converter to find out what chip they use?!

It would be very interesting to know in more detail what kind of architecture differences there are between the chips in for instance the Rosetta 800 and the Fireface 800.

Best regards,
