German manufacturer RME has released the ADI-2 DAC, a two-channel high-end digital/analogue converter in a 9.5-inch/1HE housing.

RME ADI-2 DACWith proprietary SteadyClock technology (using a 768kHz 32-bit reference converter for jitter suppression and powerful DSP processing) derived from the ADI-2 Pro AD/DA reference converter, the ADI-2 DAC offers conversion and playback of digital signals into the analogue domain. It converter features two high-performance headphone outputs, including a dedicated in-ear connection.

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 stereo XLR and stereo RCA outputs, or at standard and TRS mini jack outputs of the headphone amp. The headphone section is suitable for connecting high-impedance headphones through an Extreme Power output, and modern high-quality in-ear systems

In addition to its 120dBA signal-to-noise ratio, the ADI-2 DAC provides internal signal processing, which includes five-band parametric EQ, user-friendly bass/treble adjustment, crossfeed playback and a loudness control for the analogue stereo outputs.

Adding to its versatility, the converter has a USB recording function for incoming SPDIF signals. The ADI-2 DAC can therefore work as ideal two-channel USB audio interface, capable of recording at sample rates up to 192kHz and playing back up to 768kHz, both PCM and DSD.

An ergonomic user interface and high-resolution IPS display provide intuitive access to the wide variety of I/O options and processing functions, including an internal analyser (based on the Spectral Analyzer from the DIGICheck analysis tool). The display‘s background and label colours can be inverted for sensitive eyes or environments. Even less obtrusive is the AutoDark Mode, which will automatically switch o the display and all the LEDs after ten seconds.

The supplied remote control serves functions including volume up/down, playback source selector and equaliser on/off. In all, 20 different functions can be assigned to four additional, freely programmable buttons.
