Ultra-fidelity PCM/DSD 768 kHz AD/DA Converter

Last year RME celebrated their 20th year anniversary, with the German manufacturer announcing no less than four new products at Musikmesse 2016.

One of those new devices was the RME ADI-2 Pro, a feature-packed update to the RME ADI-2, featuring incredibly precise audio quality, powerful headphone amplifiers, plus a host of innovative features that will appeal to both mastering engineers and high-end audio aficionados alike.

With the ADI-2 Pro proving popular in both pro audio and Hifi circles, RME have chosen Musikmesse to unveil their new RME ADI-2 Pro Anniversary Edition.

Strictly limited to 500 units worldwide, the RME ADI-2 Pro AE features the same sound and functionality as its namesake, but comes decked out in an all-black housing, matching the style of audiophile-level HiFi setups.

Connectivity



Differences between the RME ADI-2 Pro and the RME ADI-2 Pro AE

  • Three orange LEDs illuminate the PCB and the components.
  • Unique see-through top The plexi's inside print (scratch protected) states 'Anniversary Edition, 20 Years of RME'.
  • The rear TS double socket has gold-plated contacts, to match the front panel headphones connections.
  • An additional metal shield optimizes crosstalk suppression between the left and right XLR inputs. The shield is similar to the one preventing crosstalk from the TS outputs to XLR R input, which is a features of all RME ADI Converters.
  • The four rubber feet have been replaced with four stylised Hi-Fi feet with brushed chrome design.
  • The four holes on the side of the original, designed to allow for rack ear mounting, have been removed.
  • A special sleeve and manual (with additional text and matching photo).
