RME Audio ADI-192 DD

Nigel Lord 22 December 2010

 What is it?A fully ‘re-engineered’ successor to the ADI-8 DD, incorporating three 8-channel format converters with 24-bit audio resolution. DetailsThe ADI-192 DD’s three output formats – ADAT, TDIF and AES – independently access the three ADAT, TDIF and AES input formats. Thanks to free selection of inputs, signals can be copied and distributed between all connected devices – without the need to change cables. Four XLR AES/EBU inputs and outputs plus two ADAT and TDIF inputs and outputs allow full 8-channel operation even at 96 kHz/24-bit. At 192 kHz, eight AES channels are available plus four ADAT and TDIF channels. Switchable 24/192kHz sample rate converters allow 8-channel sample rate conversion and clock decoupling “of the highest quality”.  48 LEDs clearly display the current status of the incoming and outgoing signals and the processing taking place within the unit. RME’s SyncCheck technology indicates whether the input signal is locked and if all inputs are synchronised. AES  signals can be output in both consumer and professional formats and the first AES output (channels 1/2) is also available as optical TOSLINK. The ADI-192 DD supports Double Wire, Quad Wire, S/MUX and S/MUX4, making it compatible with all methods of sample rate increase by sample multiplexing on all platforms. The unit can also convert between these formats. If more than eight channels are required, several units can be cascaded and synchronized sample-accurately by word clock. The ADI-192 DD also features an automatic distribution mode. If only one of the four AES inputs is used, the device will copy these two channels to the other three AES outputs.www.rme-audio.de
