A / D converter and D / A, ADAT and TDIF. Operates simultaneously in both directions, of course ...


Used for 4 years, excellent conversion quality, especially when the "blister" on a clock quality, type bigben ... Here, we realize that convertos (AKM of it seems to me) are superior.
Thing that is remarkable converters of medium / high end is that the quality of conversion depends on the reference clock of your system. Good clock = superior performance of your converter. In this case, there is, in terms of conversion quality, at Apogee, Lynx, etc. ... For a price, after all, much less ... If you have a good external clock ... For if it is not the case, the price is comparable.

It is remarkable, though, that this converter, internal clock, bear comparison with Apogee, it would (but it is very subjective!) Even greater "neutrality" in the signal conversion. ..

In summary, for those blessed with Bigben, price / quality ratio not found on the market today ...

After, there are better, but it's so expensive ...

RME Audio ADI-8 DS
Ad da converters of high quality, to convert 44.1, 48 96 but also in smux (thus only 4 channels instead of 8).

8 inputs / 8 outputs TRS, ADAT I / O, worldclock


I used it more than 5 years at the studio, first with a direct-to-disk Alesis HD24 which I was really pleased with the converters and then with an internal sound card m-audio profire 2626.

Very easy to use, it has given me a whole lot better, we rediscover all its equipment.

RME is very famous for its converters and I will ever choose without hesitation.

To date, no longer having but a small studio workstation with an Apogee Duet 2.

Web-bros's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

RME Audio ADI-8 DS
This case, ddi mainly to professionals, to convert 8 analog inputs from 44.1 to 96 kHz. With the addition DIFFERENT ways of managing bits to ensure its use in all situations (ADAT, TASCAM ....).
It also allows the D / A conversion of 8 attractions, with the same CHARACTERISTICS for input.
It is noted that the signal to noise ratio of these converters are among the best in the market.
The connection says a little money "levquot; of such boxes, analog I / O, T-DIF and ADAT, Worldclock. It should be virtually any type of situation.


Having practiced MODEL 48 kHz for more than two years, I have not had a lot of surprise about the quality of MODEL 96 kHz, except for a little more dynamic ..... but there in a transparent and c is then c is happiness.
The quality of conversion is for me the main argument.
The report price is intrresant quality for those who want a good conversion and the flexibility in the peripherals that are can be used with (T-DIF and ADAT).
I remade this choice, giving me a MULITFACE and PCMCIA for my laptop ..........
