The RME ADI-2 DAC FS is a two-channel digital-to-analog converter for the discerning audiophile or engineer. It offers 32-bit conversion up to 768 kHz, making it compatible with high-resolution PCM formats and even DSD256. Additionally, the ADI-2 is compatible with iOS devices with apposite adapters, so you can enjoy audio streamed off your tablet or iPhone in a high-quality manner.
For connections, the ADI-2 DAC FS offers stereo RCA outputs, stereo XLR connections, a 1/4" headphone output, and a low-noise IEM output. You can feed digital signal to the unit over USB, S/PDIF coaxial, S/PDIF Optical, or ADAT.
The built-in headphone amplifier provides low THD values even with 32- or 16-Ohm headphones, ensuring a transparent and crystal-clear sound. Onboard DSP allows you to dial in crossfeed, or instantiate a precise EQ for your exact predilections. This DSP also offers other features, such as a loudness contour reminiscent of old HiFi systems, and M/S encoding or decoding.
A high-resolution graphical operation surface makes operating the unit a breeze, as do the three push-button encoders and four dedicated-menu buttons. Included with the ADI-2 DAC FS are a remote control, an external power supply, a power cord, and a USB cable.
