ADI-8 QS 8-channel Hi-End AD/DA Converter description:

The RME ADI-8QS 8-channel hi-end AD/DA converter. High performance in every detail, at an unbeaten price/performance ratio.

The RME ADI-8QS is an 8-channel hi-end AD/DA converter with an unrivalled bunch of features. The ADI-8 QS combines excellent analog circuit design with outstanding low latency AD/DA converter chips of the latest generation. Along with the integrated SteadyClock, the QS offers an AD- and DA-conversion of the highest quality. Analog and digital limiters, 4 hardware reference levels up to +24 dBu, AES/EBU and ADAT I/O (optional MADI I/O) at up to 192 kHz, remote control via MIDI, digital input and output trimming for full level calibration, volume control for all 8 analog outputs, either separately or globally, digital thru-mode, operation over a wide voltage range and many more features make the QS truely unique. The ADI-8 QS is RME's reference - highest performance in every detail, at an unbeaten price/performance ratio!

The main features of the RME ADI-8QS include:

  • 8-channel AD converter, fully symmetrical design, 117 dBA
  • 8-channel DA converter, DC-coupled signal path, double balanced output, 120 dBA
  • Low latency conversion: only 8 samples of delay!
  • 4 x AES/EBU I/O via D-sub, 8 channels @ 192 kHz
  • 2 x ADAT I/O, 8 channels @ 96 kHz
  • MIDI I/O
  • Word Clock I/O
  • Digital input/output trim, range 6 dB per I/O
  • Analog and digital limiter for AD-conversion
  • 16 LED level meters with 7 LEDs each
  • Included remote control for store/recall, volume and DIM
  • SyncCheck, unique technology to check clock synchronisation
  • All settings are stored permanently
  • Fully remote controllable
  • Optional MADI I/O (I64 MADI Card) - provides the QS with a 64-channel MADI input and output
