RME Audio - ADI-2 Pro FS

rme audio adi-2 pro

768kHz 2-Channel ADAT.SPDIF.AES/EBU AD/DA Converter RME’s reference quality AD/DA converter is a versatile device with a number of seriously impressive features, in one sleek unit, whilst remaining simple and intuitive enough to hit the ground running straight out of the box. The ADI-2 Pro FS boasts seriously impressive tech and components, unreal sonic clarity, transparent sound signature, and dual headphone outputs with massive power behind them.

Ultra-Fidelity PCM/DSD 768 kHz AD/DA Converter

rme audio adi-2 pro

Loaded with the finest tech The ADI-2 Pro FS is the most versatile converter on the market, offering balanced/unbalanced analogue I/O’s, dual ‘Extreme Power’ headphone outputs, ‘SteadyClock III’, 4 stage hardware input and output level control, DSP-based signal processing, external power supply operation, Class Compliant USB compatibility, sample rates upto 768kHz and also DSD record and direct DSD playback (256/11.2mHz).

Analogue or Digital - Options Galore

rme audio adi-2 pro

A Truly versatile AD/DA converter The ADI-2 Pro FS has two servo-balanced analogue inputs on combo XLR/TRS jacks, two separate outputs on XLR and TS (both balanced and unbalanced), two stereo ‘Extreme Power’ headphone outputs on the front panel, an optical SPDIF I/O that is also ADAT compatible, coaxial SPDIF (RCA) and AES i/O (XLR) via the included breakout cable. Such an array of I/O options make this truly versatile, with such flexibility in connectivity, this is for those who will leave no stone unturned in their quest for the highest quality audio.

The USB 2.0 outlet if class compliant (UAC-2) for connectivity with iOS devices and is also the point of connection for downloading the latest firmware updates from RME. For use as a computer interface, the ADI-2 Pro features a stereo (2 in 2 out) and a multichannel mode (6 in 8 out), it is compatible with Mac devices straight from the box, whilst Windows use uses RME’s MADIface series driver, for full WDM and ASIO compatibility and peak performance.

Perfect Sound Capture and Reproduction

rme audio adi-2 pro

Flawless performance RME aimed for nothing short of the reference sound when designing the ADI-2 Pro FS. As such, every detail in the ADI-2 Pro FS is calculated and is there to serve a purpose. The main PCB is a magnificent 10-layer design with custom copper thickness, ensuring the finest and purest sound as well as ample, but separate power for the phones outputs. Internal power supply stages and precise regulators use an ultra-low noise design as to not degrade performance through the power rails.

Selected SoundPlus operational amplifiers maintain the highest SNR, the lowest THD and high slew rate under any and all conditions. The entire analogue circuit design is completely symmetrical and balanced across the whole circuit, and is DC coupled. The 4 channel AD-converter, which fully supports 786kHz sample rate and DSD recording is used in a dual mono design, with a 3db improved signal to noise ratio. Two premium DAC’s are used for two separate stereo outputs. Internal audio processing such as EQ’s, crossfeed and spectral analyser is taken care of by a high-performance DSP with 2.17 gigaflops, delivering enough computing power to work at sample rates all the way upto 768kHz.

For ease of operation, a high-quality Sample Rate Converter has been added, with the option to choose between AES or SPDIF input, which solves any clocking problem between the two. RME’s latest SteadyClock III technology ensures faultless jitter reduction and stability in clocking.

High Resolution Display

rme audio adi-2 pro

highly informative display RME Audio have packed so many features and tech into the ADI-2 Pro FS that it’s staggering, you won’t find features like this on any comparable devices on the market currently. Features like the 5 band parametric EQ’s for fully individual phones, adjustable bass/treble controls via quick access, a binaural crossfeed function, adjustable loudness filter, selectable AD/DA filters, four discrete I/O reference levels, auto reference level setting, auto balanced headphones mode and much more. The display is not only used to control the unit and display information, but also shows warning and guidance messages.

'Extreme Power' Delivers Extreme Quality

rme audio adi-2 pro

DUAL Headphone outs The ADI-2 Pro FS price tag is justified by the headphone amplifiers themselves alone. Every shred of ADI-2 Pro’s quality D/A conversion translates so well to the headphone outs. Thanks to the ‘Extreme Power’ design, you’ll enjoy 0.1-ohm output impedance, a +22dBu maximum output level, and 1.5 watts of output power per channel. The two headphones outputs are completely separate, featuring balanced operation and boast the same 120dBA signal-to-noise ratio as the ADI-2 Pro FS’s line outs.

A Visual Overview of The ADI-2 Pro FS

20 years of RME AUDIO The ADI-2 Pro FS arrives on the 20th anniversary of RME Audio. This reference AD/DA converter is a perfect way to mark such an anniversary. No matter if you choose to use it as a straight up converter, USB DAC, audio interface or headphone amplifier, you needn’t have any worries that the ADI-2 Pro FS is going to deliver the quality that we’ve come to expect can only come from RME Audio.
