    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Notionally, the ADI-2 DAC is the ADI-2 Pro without the analog input and digital outputs. I've been really impressed with the care and thoughtfulness in the design of the ADI-2 Pro (which I have), and from what I read about the ADI-2 DAC, it's got the same but honed for the "home" use case - RCA...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Hi, it's really important to learn how to use the EQ function in these units, when you get it right it will be a revelation. (Disclaimer: I own the ADI-2 Pro not ADI-2 DAC, but this part is the same.) Regards

    Sorry I'm so slow. My image processing setup is a bit paleolithic. I had a good chat with this chap but I forgot the name... That is the V200 that Peter heard I believe.     Just a couple more, all I have for now. This is Wing doing a listening test of three different T1s. One of the issues...

From memory, the next-to-last stage in the chip produces a signal that according to one of their technical...

      I like having a big knob too. The remote still does work, if you get the right angle.
