RME launches the new RME ADI-2 DAC with remote control. The ADI-2 DAC is a further development of the ADI-2 Pro AD/DA reference converter. Its input options include a coaxial SPDIF connection, an optical SPDIF/ADAT connection and a USB2 port. After DA conversion the analogue signals are available at the stereo XLR and stereo RCA outputs, or at the TRS standard and mini jack outputs of the headphone amp. The DA converter has a USB recording function for incoming SPDIF signals. The ADI-2 DAC can therefore work as an ideal two-channel USB audio interface, capable of recording at sample rates up to 192 kHz and playing back up to 768 kHz, both PCM and DSD signals.
Headphone amp with IEM output – the powerful headphone section is suitable for connecting high-impedance studio and HiFi headphones through an “Extreme Power” output, and modern high-quality in-ear systems. These generally have particularly high sensitivity, revealing the intrinsic noise of an amplifier stage in an unpleasant way. But the ADI-2 DAC’s signal-to-noise ratio of up to 120 dBA and extremely low distortion should meet the needs of the most demanding studio professional or audiophile.
ADI-2 DAC provides impressive internal signal processing options thanks to a powerful DSP processor. Among other features, it offers a 5-Band parametric EQ, user-friendly bass/treble adjustment, Crossfeed playback, and an innovative loudness control for the analogue stereo outputs.
