RME ADI-2 Pro 2-channel AD/DA converter
The ADI-2 Pro is the next generation of AD/DA converters in the RME range. It can also be used as USB 2 DAC, USB 2 interface, or simply as a high-end headphone amplifier for redefined crystal-clear audio. Whether you want to use the ADI-2 Pro in the mastering process, or whether you're an audiophile who just wants to enjoy its top-notch sound quality, prepare yourself for something spectacular. The RME ADI-2 Pro interface can automatically detect the type of connection and which mode is appropriate, based on that connection. This function can also be de-activated, if preferred.
Options, options, and more options
When you want the very best in audio quality, and don't want to compromise on any front, then this converter should be your first choice. Flexibility and quality come first, and a long list of features make it an attractive device indeed. You can connect sources to the S/PDIF I/O that also understands ADAT protocol, for instance. Via a break-out cable, you can utilise the S/PDIF over RCA and AES I/O via XLR. Furthermore, this interface is equipped with two servo-balanced analogue inputs, accessible by means of a combined XLR/TRS jack input. And finally, it features two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs via XLR and TRS, and two stereo high-impedance headphone outputs, making it a high-quality headphone amplifier as well.
Excellent recording and audio reproduction
The ADI-2 Pro is capable of making your recordings sound more lively and natural than ever before! Its integrated sample rate converter solves any clocking issues between S/PDIF and AES before they even start thanks to its SteadyClock III technology. With a maximum sample rate of a whopping 768 kHz, we're talking about the cream of the crop of AD/DA conversion! A unique feature of this device is the possibility of using a 5-band parametric equalizer and to adjust low and high frequencies wherever you deem necessary. You can even activate a binaural crossfeed function and there's an adjustable loudness filter, selectable AD/DA filters, and four analogue reference levels too. All of this information is shown on a high-res display for your optimal convenience.
