Delivery Methods and Timescales

The delivery time scale is specified on the product page to indicate when you should expect to receive your order.

Orders received just after 2pm are also often dispatched the same day, but this cannot be guaranteed.

See below for delivery options:

Royal Mail – First Class Recorded Delivery*

  • Price = FREE
  • Delivery Time – We cannot guarantee delivery time via Royal Mail. Whilst items shipped using Royal Mail First Class usually take 1 - 2 days, please note this is NOT a guaranteed next day delivery service. If this is a problem, please select one of our courier service options.

*Only available on orders with a value of less than £50

Courier – Next Working Day Service

  • Price = Free (Orders of £50+) / £9.95 (Orders of less than £50)
  • Delivery Time – Next working day from date of dispatch (see above)

Courier – Pre-noon, Next Working Day Service

  • Price = £9.95 (Orders of £50+) / £19.95 (Orders of less than £50)
  • Delivery Time – Next working day from date of dispatch (see above)

Courier – Saturday Delivery Service

  • Price = £19.95
  • Delivery Time – The first Saturday following date of dispatch (see above)

Due to the nature of the products we sell, we operate a strict fraud screening process and therefore we are only able to deliver to the billing address.

In the event of a delay, we will contact you either by email or telephone as soon as reasonably possible.

While 99% of UK locations are valid for next day/Saturday delivery, there are a few remote locations which are not covered.

Synthax Audio (UK) cannot deliver outside of the UK and Republic of Ireland*.

*RME products cannot be shipped to the Republic of Ireland.

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.

Description

Overview

The RME ADI-4 DD is a highly cost-efficient AES to ADAT and ADAT to AES converter. Support for up to 96 kHz and a built-in jitter suppression are just two of several outstanding features.

The actual states of incoming and outgoing signals and ongoing operations within the unit are displayed by LEDs in an easily oversee-able way. SyncCheck®, already found in other RME products, not only shows if an input signal is locked, but also if multiple inputs are in synchronicity. Furthermore RME's SyncAlign® technology prevents accidental errors of ± 1 sample misalignment between the AES/EBU inputs. The AES output signal can be set to Professional or Consumer subcode. Channel 1/2 can optionally be received and output optically (TOSLINK).

RME's SteadyClock(TM) technology guarantees an excellent performance in all clock modes. Its highly efficient jitter suppression enables the ADI-4 DD to refresh and clean up any clock signal, and to provide the clock signal as reference clock at the word clock output. Additionally, Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) will maintain the last sample rate detected as valid in case of fault and loss of input signal. The device can be stacked without limit, all devices will be sample synchronous by using word clock. All settings are stored at power-off.


Features

The device basically consists of two converters: four AES-3 inputs to double ADAT outputs, and double ADAT inputs to four AES-3 outputs. The double ADAT ports enable full 8 channel support, from 32 kHz up to 96 kHz (S/MUX). The unit provides one XLR I/O directly. A DB-25 connector allows for a use of industry standard AES-3 I/O breakout cables. Setting an internal connector easily changes the DB-25 connector to meet the pinout of Tascam (Digidesign), Yamaha and Euphonix cables.

Application examples:

  • AES/EBU frontend for RME's digital I/O cards (ADAT optical I/O)
  • Serves as 8-Channel AES and ADAT I/O for all digital mixing desks with ADAT or AES ports
  • Allows to operate up to 4 SPDIF or AES devices
  • Converts between AES-3, SPDIF and SPDIF optical
  • Removes jitter from AES-3 and ADAT signals


Conversion modes (selection):

  • 8-Channel AES to ADAT optical converter (96 kHz)
  • 2-Channel AES to 8-Channel ADAT splitter (96 kHz)
  • 8-Channel ADAT to AES converter (96 kHz)
  • 2-Channel AES to 8-Channel AES splitter (96 kHz)
  • 4-Channel AES Double Wire to AES Single Wire converter (96 kHz)
  • 4-Channel AES Single Wire to AES Double Wire converter (96 kHz)
