RME ADI-2 Pro AD/DA Converter and Headphone Amplifier
High-End AD/DA Converter and High-End Headphone Amp with USB2.0 Connectivity
RME's Anniversary reference AD/DA converter is a USB 2.0 DAC, USB 2.0 interface and a high-end headphone amplifier. Its design, unique specifications, user features and its ability to deliver crystal transparency, make it perfect for mastering and measurement applications as well as the ultimate tool for audiophiles everywhere.
The RME ADI-2 features premium components and intelligent circuitry across its half rack design. With RME's innovative advancement in Plug & Play technology, the comprehensive feature set is simple to set up and use. Based on incumbent connections, the ADI-2 Pro will intuitively switch to AD/DA converter, USB interface or analogue preamp mode. A precise mode can be set if required.
The ADI-2 Pro offers two servo-balanced analogue inputs on combo XLR/ TRS jacks, two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs on XLR and TRS, two stereo 'Extreme Power' headphone outputs on the front, an optical SPDIF I/O that also translates ADAT, plus coaxial SPDIF (RCA) and AES I/O (XLR) via an integrated breakout cable. This universal set of I/O options delivers premium and adaptable connectivity to those who take an uncompromising approach to audio.
The USB 2.0 port is completely Class Compliant (UAC 2) for connection with matching iOS devices and is also utilised for firmware updates. Including an external switched power supply and lockable connector, the ADI-2 Pro can be easily powered from battery, opening up mobile applications as well as isolated use cases.
An included Sample Rate Converter and RME's latest SteadyClock III technology mitigate any clocking problem between SPDIF and AES. Thanks to the most modern of AD/DA converters and RME's own FPGA-based Class Compliant core, the ADI-2 Pro offers sample rates of up to a mesmerising 768kHz for both AD (2) and DA (4) channels of conversion.
