RME ADI-2 DAC FS
HIGH-PERFORMANCE PCM/DSD, 768 KHZ
The updated ADI-2 DAC uses the ES9028Q2M from ESS in a special circuit variant developed by RME engineers that drives the chip to high performance. With a noise floor of 123 dBA, distortion of less than -120 dB or THD+N of -116 dB, the device delivers excellent measurements and lets the IEM output achieve a sensationally low noise floor of -121 dBu. Added to this is +2.5 dB of digital headroom, so high inter-sample peaks produce no audible distortion. The reserve in the volume setting means that even at a volume setting of +2.5 dB, the analog output signal is still undistorted.
There are no significant changes in operation, functions, and behavior compared to its predecessor, so neither appearance nor name have changed. All differences are explained in the detailed manual of the ADI-2 DAC.
SUPER LOW NOISE FOR IEM LOVERS
NEW EXTENDED MULTI-REMOTE SUPPORT (MRC)
The ADI-2 DAC comes with a remote that is not the usual cheap add-on. This nicely designed remote control has clearly labeled buttons, readable even in low light conditions without reading glasses, a nicely laid out button arrangement that is easy to remember, and perfect button ergonomics. Plus: It won't interfere with your ATV or other devices.
The ADI-2 DAC remote control provides buttons for standby on/off, volume, balance, bass and treble, input selection (optical, coaxial, USB), mute, on/off loudness, bass/treble and EQ.
In addition, there are four programmable buttons that provide access to 32 different functions and commands for maximum flexibility. There is no other converter or comparable device with such a sophisticated, easy to use and at the same time versatile remote control!
Note for owners of the previous remote: the new MRC is also available separately as an accessory. It can be used with all ADI-2 DACs, even older ones, if they are equipped with the latest firmware (at least version FPGA 27, DSP 33).
MORE PRO LEVEL PERFORMANCE WITH STEADYCLOCK FS
The ADI-2 DAC includes the improved SteadyClock FS, a fine-tuned to perfection analog circuitry, remote control, Extreme Power headphone output and a very special IEM output. It has all the bells and whistles that made the ADI-2 Pro famous, including its perfectly transparent sound signature and full DSP processing with Bass, Treble, Loudness, 5 Band Parametric EQ, Crossfeed and much more. With its simplified operation and stunning design it is the ideal center piece from home listening up to studio reference playback.
