RME ADI-2/4 Pro SE - New High Performance Converter

Meet RME's new top of the line AD/DA Converter

The ADI-2/4 Pro SE is a 2-in/4-out AD/DA converter up to 32-bit/768kHz and 123 dBA signal-to-noise ratio. With a newly developed circuit board, improved tech specs and faster DSP for an outstanding transparent sound signature. RME offers the new dual Extreme Power headphone amplifier, including IEM power settings, super low noise 4.4 mm Pentaconn balanced connection, a trigger out function for powering on/off external devices and a RIAA mode for directly digitizing vinyl discs in the highest quality.

Also, the powerful DSP adds all kinds of useful audio processing, including 5-band parametric EQ, fast Bass/Treble adjustment, Crossfeed, and a new concept in Loudness sound control.

Reference Class Tech Spec
If you shell out for high-end headphones, you need a headphone amplifier that won't disappoint and the RME ADI-2/4 Pro SE is certainly worthy. RME's developed Extreme Power dual headphone amplifier now pushes out more powerful headphone outputs via 2.1 Watts unbalanced, or 3.4 Watts balanced at 32 Ohms, per channel. With a dedicated IEM mode, the Lower noise Extreme Power design adds additional IEM power states (High power, Low power, IEM) for full IEM compatibility.

The ADI-2/4 Pro SE's feature-packed headphone outputs boast mute relay, overcurrent detection, DC protection, and plug detection, along with DSP control that provides auto-assigning volume, volume ramp-up, auto-balanced mode, dual-phones mode, user interaction at overload detection, and low-impedance level-meter auto-scaling.

The ADI-2/4 Pro includes two servo-balanced analogue inputs on combo XLR / TRS jacks, two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs on XLR and TRS, two stereo Extreme Power headphone outputs on the front for easy balanced operation of all headphones, including IEMs via Pentaconn connector. The available set of In/Out connections (optical and coaxial SPDIF I/O, RCA and AES (XLR)) offer superior quality and flexible connectivity to those who take a no-compromise approach to audio.

Impressive Elements
A high resolution IPS panel displays graphical functions provided by the DSP, namely Peak level meters, a 30-band analyzer in DIGICheck biquad filter technology (for metering, testing measuring and analysing) and a State Overview screen listing the current states of SPDIF, AES, USB and digital clock (SteadyClock FS).

The Class Compliant USB 2.0 is supported by iOS, macOS, Linux and Windows 10 and is used for firmware updates. Including an external switched power supply with lockable connector, the ADI-2/4 Pro can be easily powered from battery, opening up mobile applications as well as galvanically isolated use cases.
