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.

*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

RME presents the world's most versatile PCI Express audio interface - the HDSPe AIO. This card makes the dream of an All-In-One solution for every possible application come true. The Advanced-Input-Output interface shines with the latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters, with more than 112 dB signal to noise ratio. For the first time, all inputs and outputs are simultaneously operational, even SPDIF (phono) and AES/EBU (XLR).

Additional hi-quality analogue inputs and outputs can easily be added by favourably priced expansion boards. Of course TotalMix, the unsurpassed flexible routing mixer and SteadyClock, RME's sensational clock technology with maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals, are on board too. HDSPe AIO also supports the optional TCO for synchronisation to timecode (LTC/video). All this combines into a professional 'soundcard' that the world has not seen before.

HDSPe AIO is the newly developed PCI Express version of the HDSP 9632. A newly developed genuine PCI Express core consequently takes full advantage of the new format, achieving significant performance gains in multitrack audio and lowest latency. Thanks to RME's secure flash update technology, firmware improvements, adjustments, and bugfixes can be installed easily at any time.


Features

The HDSPe AIO provides unique features:

  • Balanced* stereo analog in- and output, 24-bit/192kHz, > 112 dB SNR
  • Optional analog expansion boards with 4 balanced in- or outputs
  • All analogue I/Os capable of 192 kHz, constant number of available channels
  • 1 ADAT digital I/O, supporting 192 kHz via S/MUX4 operation
  • 1 SPDIF digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 AES/EBU digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 Stereo headphone output, separate DA-converter and playback device
  • So up to 18 inputs and 20 outputs can be used simultaneously!
  • 1 MIDI I/O with 16 channels of hi-speed MIDI via breakout cable
  • DIGICheck, RME's unique metering- and analysing tool
  • TotalMix: 760 channel Mixer with 42 bit internal resolution
  • Native PCI Express - no PCI to PCI Express bridge used

* The HDSPe AIO ships in a basic version with analogue RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack). Therefore all analogue I/Os are unbalanced. An analogue XLR breakout cable is available as option (headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analogue into balanced mode.

HDSPe AIO includes SteadyClock (TM), RME's own clock technology, combining professional features like maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software controlled sample rates.

Included software

  • TotalMix FX: Comprehensive routing and mixing controller for all audio channels.

  • DIGICheck: Spectral Analyser, professional level meter for 2, 8, or 20 channels, Vector Audio Scope, various other audio analysis tools.


Settings

Just click on the hammer symbol in the systray of the taskbar and the settings dialog of the HDSPe AIO comes up. The clear structured, easy to understand window plus the unique informative status windows for input signal, clock mode and sample rate make your work with the card to a real pleasure.

When working with several digital sources it is not only necessary to know if these are properly locked, but also if they are totally synchronised. RME's exclusive SyncCheck© checks all input signals and displays their actual state, and thanks to RME's Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) concept you have all clocks and states under control - with ease.


Differences to HDSP 9632

  • PCI Express interface
  • S/PDIF and AES/EBU simultaneously operational
  • even lower latencies
  • independent phones out with
    additional DAC
  • direct support of HDSP TCO


Optional Add-Ons

Analogue Expansions
An easy to handle ribbon cable connects the optional AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO. These analogue expansion boards having one bracket with 4 stereo TRS jacks offer the same performance as the on-board stereo analogue I/O of the HDSPe AIO: up to 192 kHz, balanced operation and 3 different reference levels. With this a maximum of 6 analogue inputs and 8 analogue outputs can be achieved.

Word Clock Expansion
The optional RME Word Clock Module provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs via BNC jacks.

TDIF Expansion
HDSPe AIO can also provide a TDIF interface when using the TEB module. The TDIF Expansion has been discontinued.
