What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Manufacturer's Description from Apogee

The all-new Rosetta 800 takes two of Apogee's most celebrated products and the latest in high-definition digital and combines them into one impressive package. The Rosetta 800 gives you eight channels of superior AD/DA conversion at sample rates of up to 192k, Apogees "SoftLimit", "UV22HR", and our advanced Intelliclock. The result is a premium digital recording solution that is built for the professional recording facility yet economical enough for the project studio.

SoftLimit: Maximize Levels, Minimize Overs One of the greatest difficulties in digital recording is getting an adequate level without clipping and unwanted distortion. With Apogee's SoftLimit, you can maximize digital output levels without overs.

UV22HR: Dither Down with 24-bit Detail UV22HR is Apogee's industry standard technology for reducing the word-length of a high-resolution digital signal to 16 bits for the internet and CD mastering. UV22HR is also being employed to produce dramatically improved internet and computer audio content without increased file sizes or data rates.

Intelliclock: Dual Stage Jitter Reduction Another essential for outstanding digital recording is maintaining an ultra-low-jitter, clock signal. To accomplish this, Rosetta 800 utilizes Apogee's Intelliclock. Intelliclock is really two clocks in one. A fast-responding "read" clock, with a wide locking range, fills a dedicated FIFO buffer, while an ultra-low-jitter write clock writes the data out of the buffer, and is used to clock the converters.

Legendary Apogee Conversion in High-Definition The most crucial component in the digital recording environment is high-quality conversion and the most trusted and desirable converters are made by Apogee. With up to 96k standard and optional192k sample rates, the Rosetta 800 combines Apogee's legendary conversion quality with flexibility that complements any digital audio workstation.

Firewire for Future Connectivity Rosetta 800 has room for expansion. With the optional Firewire card installed (available later this year), you'll be able to connect the Rosetta 800 natively to any Firewire input device, without the need for additional hardware.

About Manufacturer

Apogee was founded in 1985 and initially made its name designing filters. Later, Apogee's complete conversion systems pushed the envelope of digital audio quality and solved many of the early problems with digital audio technology. Apogee converters have become regarded as the reference standard for digital audio conversion. Products such as the award-winning Rosetta 800, AD16x and DA16x  have become the modern benchmark by which digital audio conversion is judged. A new generation of Apogee products including the revolutionary Symphony I/O, with its modular design and flexible connectivity,  promise to extend the Apogee legacy and further advance the art of digital audio.
