The best new, affordable high-end DAC for Pros and Consumers.

Artemis *Seven*, 21.04.2018
Initially I intended to purchase a 2nd interface for my secondary location, where I mostly just relax and do a little bit of work on the side. However, upon finding out that my favorite audio interface brand released something in between a pro and consumer DAC product it immediately caught my attention.

Having owned the RME UFX interface for a while now, I knew what I was getting - a very well made, very high quality and easy to use product. And I wasn't disappointed. I only had to wait a while for delivery as it's constantly getting sold out of stock - something of a testiment to the product's value.

For the pros:
- sound (obviously) is absolutely high-end and crystal clear (monitors)
- heapdhone amp, which after having owned multiple REALLY high end amplifiers I can honestly say I'm surprised by.... it gave a "new life" to my DT 770's PRO which I thought I knew in and out
- something as silly as a full "dark out" function for a total lack of emitted light (for those late night listens) but very important to quite a few people
- classic RME menu's and no-nonsense unit design, so RME users will feel right at home
- the ability to interface with other RME products through the support of ADAT protocol over it's TOSLINK input (unlike other DACs with SPDIF only)
- user manual is detailed, with reference photos to help
- PRICE (no, seriously) - having the technical specs and features typically associated with products at twice the price point

For the cons:
- not necessarily a con, however I don't imagine many people using IEMs for stationary listening, so I'd rather have another one of those incredible headphone amps instead of the IEM one to share my sound experience with another person at the same time
- digital encoders - some people may think they are low quality, because they are stepped ("clicky"), and would rather have smooth, stepless ones, but RME provides a very valid technical reason for the use of those going into their decision making and technical arguments extensively in the user manual
- technically, visually and otherwise operationally - I can't think of any (apart from the ones I had to come up with above to fill the con section with something)

I would whole-heartedly recommend this product to any consumer or professional in the world. RME outdid themselves again.

RME ADI-2 DAC - Perfect Desk-Based AIO

Imraan, 07.11.2018
Short and to the point review:

Wonderful All-In-One unit for use on a desk at home or in the office.
Easily transportable.
Works wonderfully with planar headphones, studio monitors and IEMS.
Could be all you need for control and monitoring in a home/project studio.
Incredible array of extremely useful features.
Lacks the AD stage of the pro version so not useful for measurements/recording.
Separate head-amp will add some (needed) musicality if listening for pleasure with headphones - this is an extremely linear and neutral device.

Highly recommended, would buy again.
