Headphone-Zone-RME-ADI-2 DAC FS

A CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, ALL-ROUND DAC FOR A POWERFUL SONIC PERFORMANCE

Taking the ADI-2 Pro a notch higher, the ADI-2 DAC FS features an upgraded, high-end AD/DA converter with two outputs for headphones and IEMs each and an efficient remote control. The background noise and other forms of audio distortions are taken care of by the advanced analogue output stage. This all-around setup allows the ADI-2 DAC FS to function as a reference DAC and it has been acclaimed by critics for its sound, dynamics and technical features.

Headphone-Zone-RME-ADI-2 DAC FS

DESIGNED FOR AN ENHANCED AND DISTORTION-FREE AUDIO OUTPUT

The upgraded ADI-2 DAC FS uses AKM's AK4493 chipset, supported by a specifically created circuit that helps the chip produce a great performance. Noise levels are kept to a minimum of 123 dBA, distortion to a minimum of -120 dB, and THD+N to a minimum of -116 dB. The IEM output has the lowest noise through a headphone output in the entire globe at -121 dBu. The ADI-2 DAC FS further improves things by providing 4 dB of digital headroom, enabling you to listen to music at high volumes without experiencing perceptible distortion. The volume control is now only used to provide an output of an undistorted analogue signal. This DAC has a low dispersion feature with a new configurable digital filter.


OFFERING SUPER LOW NOISE OUTPUT FOR HIGHLY SENSITIVE IEMS

Modern highly sensitive IEMs often face issues like floor noise and other kinds of audio distortions. The ADI-2 DAC FS uses RME-powered IEM output which brings down the noise floor to an exceptional 10 dB. Even the output impedance is near zero ohms while the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) reaches new record lows. With click-free on/off and volume ramp-up option, you can use this DAC with any IEM without losing on the sound quality.

A BIT TEST TO ENSURE NOTHING HINDERS THE OUTCLASS PERFORMANCE

A bit test is utilised to ensure that the playback path does not alter the playback data unnecessarily. This test checks for proper channel assignment, left/right synchronicity and polarity. It also highlights cuts in bits, the presence of audio dither or other undesirable changes that can hinder the performance. The Bit test not only highlights these errors but also ensures that these errors are removed from the system for unrivalled performance.

Now this is what I was looking for

Having wasted lacs on 3 DACs at different spots of product range, I have finally got my end-game DAC.
iFi Zen Dac V2 - 13k odd. Nice for instruments but very very unnatural vocals.
iFi Neo IDSD - 65k odd. Very very good, at everything. I was impressed, I thought these DACs will only get better with more money spent. Decided to go really big.
Ordered Focal Arche to complement my Focal Stellia. Brand cancelled the order.
So I moved on and chose the Chord Hugo 2 - 165k. Pathetic. Shrill-mill. Instruments wise good, but very harsh vocals. This product is a con-job. Only thing great about it is the silver finish and colourful buttons.
Highly disappointed, but still requiring a DAC, I decided to make one last buy - do or die - so I went with a recommendation from Varun at Headphonezone.in.
The RME ADI 2 is extremely good all round, lacking nothing. Sweet sweet music and natural vocals. (Hate the black colour and bland design though) Finally happy.
Having said that the iFi Neo IDSD is the better value and virtually the same in terms of quality. Cracking looks and design too.

Lesson learnt - Expensive is not always better.

Great product. Good shopping experience

The DAC sounds great in its first hours of playing, and will hopefully only get better. A noticeable improvement on the M-DAC Mini, particularly in the low frequencies and overall clarity. Delivery time was shorter than expected and than had been communicated to me - an additional pleasant surprise.

Hey Jeremy, thanks for the positive feedback. We are so happy to hear that you had a great shopping experience with us. We hope to serve you again soon! Happy listening! :)
