[Musikmesse] RME Multichannel Converters
RME will launch its new analog multichannel MADI and ADAT converter series at Frankfurt Musikmesse 2009
RME's MADI line is now extended by multichannel converters with 16 and 32 channels. The M-series converters have been conceived and optimized for professional studio, stage, and broadcast applications.
Packed into 2U height, the M-32 AD offers a 32-channel AD-conversion to MADI and ADAT in reference quality. The symmetrical analog circuit design is designed to guarantee S/N and THD specs across an analog level range. Using converter technology, the device works up to 192 kHz, but also reaches a real-world signal-to-noise ratio of 116 dBA — on all channels.
Nearly identical features are found in the M-32 DA, which offers a 32-channel high-end DA conversion.
Both converters are also available as 16-channel versions. Except for the reduced channel count M-16 AD and M-16 DA are identical to their bigger brothers.
The converters of the M-series are expected to be available in May 2009.
