Publish date:

Ft. Lauderdale, FL - November 2016… Synthax, Inc., the Americas distributor for RME, a leading manufacturer of high quality digital audio solutions, proudly announces the introduction of the ADI-2 Pro High-end AD/DA converter. Delivering crystal clear sonic transparency, the ADI-2 Pro is ideal for mastering and measurement applications, plus hi-res audio playback—making it well suited to studio applications as well as use in theaters and performing arts venues where superior audio quality is essential.

The ADI-2 boasts high-grade components and intelligent circuitry throughout its half-rack design. Being Plug & Play compatible, the unit’s comprehensive feature set makes the ADI-2 Pro easy to set up and use. Based on the connections being made, the ADI-2 Pro will automatically switch to AD/DA converter, USB interface, or analog preamp mode. A specific mode can be set if required.

The ADI-2 Pro excels at connectivity. This premium converter includes two servo-balanced analog inputs on combo XLR/ TRS jacks, two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs on XLR and TRS connectors, two individual stereo ‘Extreme Power’ headphone outputs on the front, an optical SPDIF I/O that also recognizes the ADAT format, plus coaxial SPDIF (RCA) and AES I/O (XLR) via an included breakout cable. This universal set of I/O options enables the ADI-2 Pro to offer quality and flexible connectivity to those who take a no-compromise approach to audio.

The ADI-2 Pro’s USB 2.0 port is fully Class Compliant (UAC 2) for connection with compatible iOS devices and Mac OS computers. Windows 7 or up is also supported with WDM and ASIO by RME's own driver. With the included external switched power supply with lockable connector, the ADI-2 Pro can be easily powered via battery, opening up mobile applications.

The ADI-2 Pro excels at high-end AD/DA conversion, in both PCM and DSD mode. Utilizing SteadyClock III, RME’s unique jitter suppression technology that guarantees perfect sound quality, the unit supports sampling frequencies of up to 768 kHz and DSD256. Equally notable, the ADI-2 Pro provides an exceptional 5-band parametric EQ per channel and for all analog I/Os, offering efficient frequency correction of headphones and speakers.

Mathias von Heydekampf, Managing Director at Synthax, commented on the new RME ADI-2 Pro, “The ADI-2 Pro delivers crystal clear, sonic transparency for use in a wide range of audio applications. With all its connectivity, this converter is equally at home in a high-end studio, a performing arts center, or in one’s personal Hi-Res Audio setup. Like all RME products, the new ADI-2 Pro offers world-class audio performance combined with impeccable build quality. I’m confident audio professionals will find this new converter an outstanding choice for their requirements.”

The new RME ADI-2 Pro High-end AD/DA converter carries an MSRP of $2.299. Now available.
