The ADI-2 Pro is RME's reference AD/DA converter, USB 2.0 DAC, USB 2.0 interface and high-end headphone amplifier.
It's design, unique specifications, user features and its ability to deliver crystal transparency, make it perfect for mastering and measurement applications as well as the ultimate tool for audiophiles everywhere.
The ADI-2 Pro boasts quality components and circuitry throughout its half rack design. With RME's fresh concept in Plug & Play, the comprehensive feature set is easy to set up and use. Based on your connections, the ADI-2 pro will automatically switch to AD/DA converter, USB interface or analog preamp mode. You can manually override the Auto Mode if required.
Analog or Digital - Options Galore
The ADI-2 Pro includes two servo-balanced analog inputs on combo XLR/ TRS jacks, two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs on XLR and TRS, two stereo 'Extreme Power' headphone outputs on the front, optical SPDIF I/O that also understands ADAT, and coaxial SPDIF (RCA) and AES I/O (XLR) via an included breakout cable. This universal set of I/O options offer quality and flexible connectivity to those who take a no-compromise approach to audio.
The USB 2.0 port is UAC 2 and is fully Class Compliant for connection with compatible iOS devices. and is also used for firmware updates. Including an external switched power supply with lockable connector, the ADI-2 Pro can be powered from battery easily, opening up mobile applications as well as galvanically isolated use cases.
Perfect Sound Capture and Reproduction
An integrated Sample Rate Converter solves any clocking problem between SPDIF and AES, with the help of RME's latest SteadyClock III technology. Thanks to the latest AD/DA converters and RME's own FPGA-based Class Compliant core, the ADI-2 Pro offers sample rates of up to a staggering 768kHz.
High Resolution Display Operation
RME's designers have incorporated many unique features, which are be found on any comparable devices, are controlled using the high-resolution display. The ADI-2 Pro includes 5-band parametric EQs for individual phone compensation, an adjustable bass/treble quick access, a binaural crossfeed function, adjustable loudness filter, selectable AD/DA filters and four analog reference levels.
Professional features such as M/S Processing, stereo width and phase reversal up to full control and storage of all settings are all included, as well as RME's famous Spectral Analyser, a 30-band bi-quad filtered analysis tool offering unprecedented musical visualisation, perfectly complementing the new IPS display.
"Extreme Power " Headphone Output
The ADI-2 Pro is equipped with a newly designed head-phone output stage, which excels with 0.1 Ohm output impedance, a maximum output level of +22 dBu, and a maximum output power of 2.2 Watts per channel!
The headphone output enjoys the 120 dB SNR performance of the DA converters used on the line outputs resulting in virtually hum and noise free listening.
