I have not worked with either the Prism or Mytek units you mentioned, however, I have been a user of Apogee products for years and can speak to their reliability and ease-of-use in production. I have been using the Rosetta 200 and 800 units for several years and have yet to test drive the Symphony, however, it appears to be a well-thought-out upgrade to the Rosetta 800.
Again, Apogee products on the whole are intuitive and very reliable in my work environment and don't require an esoteric knowledge of signal processing to achieve a good conversion.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] ADA converters
Just curious if anyone has had a chance to compare the ADA conversion of the new Apogee Symphony I/O with other products commonly used in audio preservation such as the Prism ADA16XR or the Mytek 8X192 8 Channel AD/DA or the Lynx Aurora? Or, even if you have not been able to compare them, has anyone been able to test drive the Apogee Symphony?
