Loaded with RME's ultra-stable femtosecond clock, the ADI-2 Pro FS offers world-class conversion. With it, you can tackle sample rates up to 768kHz, convert between multiple digital formats, and record and play back DSD audio. You can also use the ADI-2 Pro FS as a top-tier double headphone amplifier. Keeping an eye on your levels and parameters is a breeze, thanks to a high-resolution display. Beyond that, you can use the ADI-2 Pro FS's USB port to create a high-end AD/DA front-end for your Mac, PC, or iOS device. Great for engineers and passionate audiophiles alike, the ADI-2 Pro FS is an exceptional AD/DA converter.

Ultra-stable SteadyClock FS technology
RME's SteadyClock has earned many accolades, by virtue of its flawless, low-jitter clocking. This technology has always been RME's secret weapon, ensuring that the internal clocks on their devices sound exactly the same as using an external one. The ADI-2 Pro FS's SteadyClock FS takes self-jitter even lower, improving its analog PLL circuit and referencing both Direct Digital Synthesis and PLL to a low-phase-noise quartz crystal. In fact, the ADI-2 Pro FS's self-jitter reaches levels that are usually only available in master quartz clock mode, even while running in PLL mode. Thanks to this updated circuit, the ADI-2 Pro FS reaches jitter specs as low as a femtosecond. Just to put it in perspective, that's 1/1,000,000,000,000,000 of a second!

Quality construction that translates into world-class sound
The ADI-2 Pro FS is among the finest AD/DA converters and it all starts with quality construction. Its main circuit board features a 10-layer design with custom copper thickness. Its internal power supply employs a low-noise design that delivers separate power to its headphone outputs. In use, the ADI-2 Pro FS exhibits an exceptional signal-to-noise ratio, minimal harmonic distortion, and a high slew rate via selected SoundPlus op-amps. Its entire analog signal path is fully symmetrical, balanced, and DC-coupled. The only capacitors in the ADI-2 Pro FS's signal path perform DC protection at its analog input sockets and have been carefully selected to avoid any sonic impact.

A myriad of analog and digital I/O options
Whatever signal you feed the RME ADI-2 Pro FS, it can take it. A pair of servo-balanced XLR/TRS combo analog inputs makes connecting your studio gear a breeze. Two separate balanced and unbalanced outputs on XLR and TS are also on tap, as are two Extreme Power headphone outputs. The ADI-2 Pro FS's optical S/PDIF I/O also accommodates ADAT and AES signals. Connect your Mac to the ADI-2 Pro FS's USB port to use it as a 6-in/8-out audio interface no drivers required. Or use it under Windows with RME's rock-solid MADIface driver for full WDM and ASIO compatibility. Its USB port is also compatible with your iOS devices.

Loaded with unique features for unparalleled performance
The ADI-2 Pro FS has more features than your average AD/DA converter. You get access to Bass/Treble controls, a binaural crossfeed function, adjustable loudness filter, selectable AD/DA filters, four discrete I/O reference levels, auto reference level setting, auto balanced headphones mode, and more. Professional engineers will appreciate the ADI-2 Pro FS's onboard M-S processing, stereo width, and phase reversal parameters. You also get a spectral analyzer and 30-band bi-quad filtered analysis tool. Best of all, everything is easily visible on the ADI-2 Pro FS's high-resolution display.

Extreme Power headphone outputs deliver top-quality sound
The ADI-2 Pro FS is worth the price of admission for just the headphone amplifiers alone they sound that good. Every ounce of this converter's quality D/A conversion translates to the headphone outputs. Thanks to RME's Extreme Power design, you'll experience 0.1-ohm output impedance, a +22dBu maximum output level, and 1.5 watts of output power per channel. Each headphone output is completely separate, features balanced operation, and boasts the same 120dBA signal-to-noise ratio as the ADI-2 Pro FS's line outputs. Even with sensitive headphones, hum or noise won't spoil your listening experience. The Extreme Power design also incorporates current limiting, power surveillance, overload detection, and DC protection. Low power and high power modes are also provided to match your headphones.

RME 20 years of innovative audio solutions
The ADI-2 Pro FS marks 20 years of RME, and their reference AD/DA converter makes a fine addition to their world-class line of products. Whether you use it as a converter, USB DAC, audio interface, or headphone amp, you can be confident that the ADI-2 Pro FS will deliver the quality that can only be achieved after two decades of research, development, and innovation.
