From Our Research Team:
Extraordinarily Flexible 2-channel High-end AD/DA ConverterThe RME ADI-2 is a both compact and extremely flexible 2-channel Hi-End AD/DA-converter. The small 9.5" RME ADI-2 offers top notch AD/DA-conversion from/to SPDIF, AES and ADAT, at up to 192kHz. Its ability to use SPDIF, AES and ADAT format provides outstanding compatibility.
RME ADI-2 at a Glance:
Balanced inputs and outputs
The ADI-2 is equipped with a balanced stereo line input via two Neutrik XLR/phones combo jacks, a balanced stereo line output with XLR plus separate and simultaneously active phone jacks, as well as an adjustable headphone output.
The analog inputs and outputs use the same circuit design as RME's famous ADI-8, guaranteeing outstandingly low noise and distortion. Three different settings for the input and output levels each provide perfect compatibility on analog domain. A further highlight is SteadyClock, a proprietary clock technology for maximum jitter suppression. SteadyClock guarantees superb sound quality completely independent from the quality of the current reference clock. The ADI-2 uses the latest generation of AD/DA-converters capable of up to 192kHz sampling frequency at a S/N ratio of 110dB.
The RME ADI-2 has more to offer than tremendous sound, it also gives you exciting digital connectivity. The RME ADI-2's transformer-balanced coaxial (RCA) SPDIF I/O has switchable Channel Status to make it fully AES/EBU compatible. The optical TOSlink I/Os can handle up to 192kHz and also serve as ADAT I/Os with up to 96kHz sample rate. You can even use the RME ADI-2's SPDIF input and ADAT output or vice versa in AD/DA mode.
Clear Layout and Distinct Labeling
The clear layout and the distinct labeling of the RME ADI-2's front panel with its functional buttons, the informative status displays, a six-LED level meter as well as the tidy functional back panel make the RME ADI-2 easy to operate the ADI-2 right out of the box. Protective rack handles and a strain-relief for power cord and audio cables are further useful details that make the ADI-2 even more unique.
Wide Range Of Power
Following the 'Universal Power Supply' philosophy of RME's Digiface, Multiface, QuadMic and OctaMic, the ADI-2 comes with an external switching power supply. Its additional internal switching power supply has been specially designed and optimized for audio applications. It accepts any voltage from 7 to 30 V, be it AC or DC, and even runs on batteries and rechargeable batteries.
