Next-Level Clocking, Hi-Res Sampling

Designed to deliver studio-grade sound to any setup, the ADI-2 DAC from RME is the next step in digital-to-audio processing. Using AKM's highly regarded AK4493 DAC chip in a special circuit developed by RME engineers, the ADI-2 DAC delivers sample rates up to 768 kilohertz, as well as DSD and Direct DSD playback. Equally as impressive is what you aren’t hearing. The ADI-2 DAC’s innovative design achieves an ultra-low THD+N of -116 decibels, and -121 unloaded decibels for its IEM output. State-of-the-art SteadyClock FS technology reduces clock jitter to class-leading levels lower than a picosecond: a femtosecond. To fit the needs of any listener, the ADI-2 DAC features Class Compliant USB compatibility, balanced and unbalanced analog inputs and outputs, and an Extreme Power headphone output alongside its low-noise IEM output. It also comes with four-stage hardware output level control and a remote for convenient adjustments.
