RME Interface & Clock Released at PL+S
RME DIGIFACE AVB
RME’s new Digiface AVB mobile audio interface is based on the AVB standard and enables the transmission of up to 256 network audio channels between a Windows computer and other AVB devices within an audio Gigabit network via a single USB 3.0 cable.
The 192kHz interface can be USB bus powered and operates using the open IEEE 802.1 protocol as part of the AVB standard of the Audio/Video Bridging Task Group. Users can adjust the channel sizes of streams between two and 32 channels as needed to ensure maximum compatibility with AVB audio devices available on the market.
The RME Digiface AVB features word clock I/O, a headphone output, the TotalMix FX mixer as well as an AVDECC controller. The controller enables detection of all AVB devices within a network and allows users to manage and monitor incoming and outgoing streams.
RME ADI-2 PRO FS
RME also introduces the ADI-2 Pro FS, an update of the ADI-2 Pro converter with the addition of a new femtosecond clock technology of the ADI-2 DAC. Also, the AutoDark mode from the new ADI-2 DAC has now also been implemented in the ADI-2 Pro FS.
Like the ADI-2 Pro, the ADI-2 Pro FS combines several devices in one: a high-end studio-quality AD/DA converter, a dual headphone amplifier, a multi-format converter (AES, SPDIF, ADAT) with monitoring features, a DSD recording and playback converter as well as an AD/DA front end for audio measurements with up to 768kHz sample frequency.
With the SteadyClock FS, the ADI-2 Pro FS features the latest clock and jitter rejection technology from the recently introduced ADI-2 DAC. Based on a femtosecond clock (a femtosecond is one quadrillionth of a second) SteadyClock FS reduces the intrinsic jitter of the ADI-2 Pro FS to a new all-time low.
