Delivery Methods and Timescales

The delivery time scale is specified on the product page to indicate when you should expect to receive your order. If all item(s) are in stock and your order was placed before 2pm, subject to passing necessary checks, your order will be shipped the same day. Orders received just after 2pm are also often dispatched the same day, but this cannot be guaranteed.


Delivery Options

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.

16-Channel Reference-Class 
AD/DA Converter With
 Audio Networking Capabilities

  • Professional 16-Channel AD / 8-Channel DA Converter (plus headphone output) with audio networking capabilities
  • +13 dB / +19dB / +24 dB switchable gains on every channel


  • 6 x Balanced Line-Level TRS Inputs
  • 2 x Balanced Line-Level TRS Outputs
  • 16 x Balanced Line-Level D-Sub Inputs
  • 8 x Balanced Line-Level D-Sub Outputs
  • 4 x ADAT I/O
  • 1 x MADI Coaxial I/O (BNC)
  • 1 x MADI Optical I/O
  • 2 x AVB Audio Networking Connections
  • 1 x USB
  • 1 x Headphone Output
  • Remote Control With Web Interface
  • Dual / Redundant Power Supplies



Simplicity at first glance - Flexibility and reliability beyond

Integrating 16 analogue inputs with a switchable sensitivity of up to +24 dBu per channel; 8 corresponding analogue outputs; and an additional headphone output, the M-1610 Pro brings plenty of analogue I/O to a studio setup.

RME M-1610 Pro - Front Panel

With its coaxial and (optional) optical MADI, redundant AVB, four ADAT optical outputs, and redundant DC-coupled outputs, the device represents one of the most versatile and highest-performing converters on the market.

Plug'n'play - rapid user interaction

Control all device states directly from the front panel with an encoder and buttons for convenient, direct access to all features.

RME AVB devices can also be fully remote controlled via a web-interface on any network link (including wirelessly over Wi-Fi), allowing for the rapid creation of gain groups, phantom power switching, and routing of signals to headphones for monitoring.

The integrated routing matrix allows for quick routing of any analogue inputs straight to the headphone output, as well as all digital signals and AVB streams. As such, problem-solving of signals, clocking, connectivity or other issues is both simple and straight-forward!


Connectivity and Features

Add Analogue and AVB I/O to any existing MADI devices

At the request of recording engineers using a variety of analogue effects and instruments in their sessions, RME have combined the outstanding performance of the M-32 Pro AD and DA converters into a single device, and at an unbeatable price-point.

When compared with the M-32 Pro series, which were designed primarily for fixed installations, the M-1610 Pro adds a selection of additional user-friendly features, for seamless operation in studio, live and broadcast. Input and output TRS jacks provide alternative connections for the D-Sub inputs (inputs 11-16) and D-Sub outputs (outputs 1-2), alongside redundant network ports, a headphone output for monitoring and trouble-shooting, and quick access buttons for source selection and volume.

The internal routing matrix provides visual control over all channels side by side - up to eight AVB streams (with a total of 128 channels); the coaxial and (optional) optical MADI ports (with each up to 64 channels); all analogue I/O; and the ADAT outputs, for flexible routing between the 272 inputs and 298 outputs.

Lowest converter latencies and deterministic AVB networking with configurable network delay down to 0.3ms allow the M-1610 Pro to deliver samples, even from multiple devices, at incredible speeds - time-aligned with nanosecond accuracy across an entire network.

The AD and DA filters have been carefully optimized for different sampling rates, with a focus on accuracy and RME’s signature ‘transparency’ (nothing added, nothing removed). Together with SteadyClock FS, RME’s ultra-low jitter digital clock technology, the conversion to and from analogue is state-of-the-art, at any level and across all digital formats. As a notable difference to similar devices, the three analogue line levels per channel each offer the full
dynamic range of the converters.


Optional RME MADI SF Module (Optical)

Optional: RME MADI SFP Module

The RME M-1610 Pro's MADI I/O can be expanded via the optional SFP module, increasing the MADI channel count to 256 channels and offering MADI redundant operation.


SteadyClock FS - Reference class Digital Clocking

In digital audio, the clock frequency is an essential factor, as it creates the correlation between the audio bits and the time reference. Unfortunately, the clock frequency is not always as stable as desired. The M-1610 Pro offers full SteadyClock FS performance for lowest jitter and highest jitter immunity.

Excellent performance in all clock modes and High-Quality Analogue Conversion to hear your mix as it is. Digital format conversion in RME products are done without any loss or degradation, and SteadyClock FS ensures your sonic image will never experience degradation. This helps to optimize recordings and mixes because the soundstage has more depth and clarity.
