The RME ADI-2 DAC: A New Standard in Digital Audio Conversion

The Quest for Jitter-Free Audio: How SteadyClock FS Makes a Difference

In the world of digital audio, jitter has always been a notorious enemy. The RME ADI-2 DAC addresses this issue head-on with its SteadyClock FS technology. By virtually eliminating jitter, SteadyClock FS ensures that the conversion from digital to analogue signals is as faithful as possible, providing an audio output that is both clear and precise.

Connectivity That Adapts to You: Balanced XLR, Unbalanced RCA, and More

Whether you're an audio professional with a fully-equipped studio or an audiophile with a high-end home setup, the ADI-2 DAC has the connectivity to match. With balanced XLR, unbalanced RCA, and a dedicated phones output, this device offers the flexibility to fit into any audio chain with ease.

Not Just a Display, but a Control Centre: The High-Resolution IPS Screen

The high-resolution IPS display serves as more than just a screen; it's your control centre for navigating the ADI-2 DAC's extensive features. The intuitive menu structure and detailed metering for input and output levels make it a powerful tool for managing your audio.

Sound Customisation at Your Fingertips: The Five-Band Parametric Equaliser

Every listening environment is unique, and the ADI-2 DAC's 5-band parametric equaliser allows you to tailor the audio output accordingly. Whether you're in a studio requiring flat response or a living room with specific acoustic characteristics, the equaliser provides the flexibility to adjust the sound to your needs.

Auto Dark Mode: The Subtle Art of Monitoring

Not all audio experiences happen in well-lit rooms. For those who prefer a darker environment, the ADI-2 DAC's Auto Dark Mode provides a solution. This feature dims all the lights on the unit, leaving just one for essential monitoring, making it a thoughtful addition for various listening scenarios.
