• Apogee Rosetta AD 48K Converter •


Here's your chance to own a professional, studio quality analog-to-digital converter at a great price!

Apogee Rosetta AD 48K professional analog to digital converter. I used this to record some of my vinyl records and it was perfect for that application. With switchable gain from +4dB to -10dB and fine gain adjustments on the front panel, it was easy to dial in the perfect level for recording vinyl.

The Rosetta AD features analog inputs operating at pro or consumer levels, balanced or unbalanced. The highest quality Apogee 24-bit conversion drives two AES/EBU outputs so you can feed two machines at once. In addition, ADAT, TDIF, and S/PDIF coax/optical interfaces are all built-in, for the absolute maximum in quality and flexibility!

Apogee´s renowned Soft Limit technology allows you to record at the maximum level without overs, while our new high-resolution UV22HR process allows you to generate flawless 16- and 20-bit masters retaining as much of the original 24-bit resolution as possible. Apogee´s exacting analog and digital design assures top audio performance without compromise, including excellent stereo imaging and transparent sound.

The sound quality of Apogee converters is legendary. Their UV22HR 16 and 20 bit processing is used on many CD's for final mixes. Chances are, you own quite a few CD's that were mastered using an Apogee Rosetta AD converter.

The Apogee Rosetta AD makes a great master down-mix A/D converter to give your music extra clarity and punch that only professional rack gear can provide! It's also a great choice for capturing and archiving vinyl records and analog tapes.

In fact, this AD converter was used to capture the audio for some of my YouTube videos. To see and hear it in action, search for BSD2000 on YouTube and look for the Rush - "Big Money" and Diahann Carroll - "There'll Be Some Changes Made" videos.

Note: This item was originally owned by Frankie Spellman and was used for major film and TV productions. Own a piece of Hollywood history!

Professionals use Apogee conversion daily to make records in top studios. Give your DAW a major boost in sound quality!
