The latest update to RME’s ADI-8 series - the ADI-8 DS Mk III - is an 8-channel high-end AD/DA converter with a truly unique feature set. The device combines excellent analog circuit design with the latest generation of outstanding low latency AD/DA converter chips. Along with its integrated SteadyClock, the ADI-8 DS Mk III offers not only AD and DA conversion of the highest quality, but also digital format conversion and distribution features for full digital connectivity.

Like RME’s successful predecessors ADI-8 Pro and ADI-8 DS the ADI-8 DS Mk III provides outstanding specifications, and delivers professional quality and features for a fraction of the budget you usually would have to spend.

The ADI-8 DS Mk III comes as a standard 19” one rack unit device offering Intelligent Clock Control (ICC), SyncCheck, SteadyClock, AES/EBU and ADAT I/Os, four hardware reference levels up to +24 dBu and 192 kHz sample rate, word clock I/O and double 8-channel level metering. The DS Mk III incorporates lowest latency conversion with less than 12 samples delay, which turns digital monitoring into analog-style monitoring.

In addition to the high quality AD/DA link to the analog world the ADI-8 DS Mk III interfaces all digital studio equipment with ADAT or AES/EBU in- and outputs, being the perfect match for RME’s HDSPe AES and HDSP AES-32. It provides both cards with 8 analog I/Os in reference conversion quality at up to 192 kHz. Using multiple MK III the HDSPe RayDAT could be fitted with up to 32 analog I/Os via its 4 ADAT I/Os.

The new DS Mk III also includes a digital patchbay with free choice of source and destination setup. ADAT can be converted to AES, AES to ADAT, cross-converted at the same time, ADAT passed on to ADAT while monitored analog, and many more. The ADAT outputs also feature a copy mode for connection of two different ADAT devices. These powerful and easy to use modes add significant value to the already outstanding conversion quality.
