8-channel AD/DA low latency converter, 192 kHz, 4x AES/EBU I/O per D-sub, 2x ADAT I/O (8-channels at 96 kHz, 4-channels at 192 kHz), Word clock I/O, 2x 8-channel level metering, digital patch mode.
The RME ADI-8 DS mk III is an eight-channel AD and DA converter.
Housed in a 1U 19″ chassis, the ADI-8 DS MkIII offers eight channels of AD and DA conversion with a latency of less than 12 samples, with the great features and build quality found throughout the range.
The ADI-8 represents the most high-end converters available from German manufacturer RME. It provides analogue I/O over 1/4″ TRS and DB25, as well as conversion to ADAT and AES/EBU.
The latest update to the ADI-8 line, the DS mkIII, increases the available sample rate to 192KHz, providing eight channels over AES/EBU and up to four over ADAT. This welcome upgrade cements the ADI-8 as one of RME’s top-of-the-line converters and an extremely well respected industry standard.
