RME ADI-8 DS 8 Channel AD/DA Converter

RME ADI-8 DS
A high quality 8 channel analogue to digital and digital to analogue converter, which I use alongside my soundcard. RME have a very good reputation in the mid range of kit, not as good as the high range Apogee maybe, but much much less than half the price of an 8 channel Apogee unit.

The noise level is excellent and it is extremely easy to work. Capable of sample rates of 44.1 KHz, 48 KHz and 96 KHz (using SMUX) and various clocking options including external word clock input. Analogue ins and outs are on balanced 1/4" jacks, digital in and out is on ADAT optical or TDIF. The ADAT connections are made using two ADAT cables so that 8 channels of up to 96KHz can be dealt with. If operating at 48 or 44.1 then the spare output can be used to mirror or bit-split. The unit is standard 19" rackmount in a 1U space.

Highly recommended.
