they boost lows and highs and seems a bit "distant" in the midrange etc.....



I would say as a general comment, that this is true.  

I have been using a Rosetta 200 for a while with good results but after spending some time with a Lavry Blue system, I'm switching to that.  I love how much much more responsive mids are.

To be fair, if I could keep both, I probably would.  It wouldn't be a bad color to have around for some material.  On the whole though, I decided the Lavry would be a better way to go.

Look, I know it's mean.  But sometimes the end justifies the mean.

What I really liked to know if anybody here uses high end audiophil stuff like Burmester, Mark Levinson, Accuphase, Wadia and so on.

There are some with variable analogue output you could use for monitoring.

That's an interesting question.  Now that you mention it, even though our monitoring is more in the Hi-Fi camp, the conversion still belongs to the pro market.  

The "pro" market converters are definitely more studio-friendly from a connectivity standpoint - balanced analog and AES digital.

The High End stuff like Burmester and others offer balances I/Os. For example  Burmester HiFi-Preamp 808 can be ordered with balances input and output modules. Every modul can be calibrated easily ....
A lot of features which are also useful for studios.

Just an example. I used Wadia in the nineties. It was one of the best 20 bit DA converter - strange that I don?t remember the name.
