Missed Deliveries

If you are not in to receive the order at the time delivery is attempted, a card will normally be left to notify you of the missed delivery attempt. This will allow you to either telephone the courier company to arrange a re-delivery at a more convenient time or collect it from your local courier depot or Royal Mail sorting office. For security reasons, all items require a signature.

If for any reason the item is returned to us (e.g. incorrect address specified, multiple failed delivery attempts), then we will inform you immediately by email as soon as we receive the item. From this point forth, you will be given a choice whether you wish us to re-dispatch the item or cancel the order. Please refer to our Cancellations & 14 Day Returns Procedure for more details. For items where delivery failed through no fault of Synthax Audio (UK), you will be liable for the original shipping charge, any courier surcharges and any subsequent delivery charges.

Late Deliveries or Dispatch

We are able to ship almost every order in the specified timescale. However, in very rare circumstances there can be an unforeseen delay. If this does happen, we will make it our priority to get your order dispatched from our warehouse as soon as reasonably possible.

There are also rare cases, beyond our control, when the delivery company itself has a problem which causes a delay in transit. In these situations we will do our utmost to liaise with the relevant delivery company to ensure delivery is completed as swiftly as possible.

Consequential Loss for Late Deliveries

If a delivery is late, then we will provide a refund of any delivery fee that we charged you. We do not provide financial compensation to cover consequential losses, e.g. for time taken off work to receive a delivery, or if the item is intended as a gift and you have to purchase the same item from a more expensive retailer.

Expand your RME AVB Device with MADI Optical I/O

The RME MADI optical SFP module expands compatible RME devices with an optical SFP transceiver. Up to 64 additional audio channels can be sent to and received from other MADI devices.

The MADI SFP module can also be used to provide a redundant (backup) MADI stream when used in tandem with an RME device's MADI coaxial I/O.


The SFP Module is compatible with the following RME devices:

RME 12Mic


RME M-1610 Pro

Multimode / Singlemode

The module is available in Multi-Mode and Single-Mode variants, which is clearly indicated on the module itself (as 'MM' and 'SM'), as well as the packaging.

Since the light transmission and required cabling differs, Multi-mode modules can only be used reliably with other multi-mode MADI devices. The same applies to Single-mode, which is less common in MADI systems.


The RME MADI SFP module accepts fibre optic cables with LC (Lucent Connector). As the majority of MADI devices requires SC (Square Connectors), this module comes with an adapter cable and SC-SC coupler. This allows the use of existing MADI cables.

Package Contents

The SFP Module box contains:

• 1 pc. SFP Module with LC connector

• 1 pc. 2 m (6.3 ft) fiber optic cable

• 1 pc SC (female) to SC (female) couple
