Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Ger­man man­u­fac­turer RME Au­dio has re­leased the RME ADI-2 DAC, a two-chan­nel high-end dig­i­tal-to-ana­logue con­verter de­signed with fea­tures tar­geted at ap­peal­ing to both stu­dio pro­fes­sion­als and au­dio­philes alike.

The RME ADI-2 DAC is a fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of the renowned 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 D/A 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. ‘ Us­ing the lat­est 32-bit/768kHz ref­er­ence con­verter RME SteadyClock tech­nol­ogy for ex­cel­lent jit­ter sup­pres­sion and a pow­er­ful DSP pro­ces­sor, the ADI-2 DAC of­fers zero-com­pro­mise con­ver­sion and play­back of dig­i­tal sig­nals into the ana­logue world,’ said Bill Barsby, of In­no­va­tive Mu­sic Aus­tralia, which dis­trib­utes RME in Aus­tralia. ‘ The D/A con­verter fea­tures two high-per­for­mance head­phone out­puts, in­clud­ing a ded­i­cated in-ear con­nec­tion.’

The RME ADI-2 DAC in­cludes a DSP pro­ces­sor that of­fers 5-band para­met­ric equal­i­sa­tion, bass/tre­ble ad­just­ment, a cross­feed di­rec­tor and a loud­ness con­trol. It also has a USB record­ing func­tion for in­com­ing S/PDIF sig­nals, able to record at sam­ple rates up to 192kHz and play back at up to 768kHz, both PCM and DSD sig­nals. ‘ To en­sure that users have quick and in­tu­itive ac­cess to the wide va­ri­ety of in­put and out­put op­tion and pro­cess­ing func­tions, the ADI-2 DAC has an er­gonomic user in­ter­face and high­res­o­lu­tion IPS dis­play, where users can ac­cess such tools as the in­ter­nal anal­yser, based on the fa­mous Spec­tral An­a­lyzer from the DIGICheck anal­y­sis tool,’ Barsby told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine. ‘ The sup­plied re­mote con­trol makes us­ing the DAC even more con­ve­nient with 20 dif­fer­ent func­tions that can be in­di­vid­u­ally ac­cessed and/or as­signed to four ad­di­tional pro­gram­mable but­tons.’
