RME ADI-8 DS by |-|

  • Sound Quality 4 out of 5
  • Ease of use 4 out of 5
  • Features 4 out of 5
  • Bang for buck 4 out of 5
  • Overall: 4

Got this running through the dual ADAT ports on my RME UFX. Running SMUX for 96k I/O and word clock, with the UFX as master.

Termination is happening through the UFX which is convenient.

Converters are very good, I wouldn't say stunning but they sound better than nearly all ADAT converters I've ever heard. I'm a bit spoiled by the UFX and my Waves MaxxBCL so that's saying a lot.

The only issue I have is I have to hit the DS button anytime I'm switching from 44/48 up to 88/96 or it won't clock properly and it's somewhat annoying to have to take this small step.

It can act as a format converter as well, which is extremely handy but I'm not using it for that.

Overall I'd give it a solid 4.5/5 with the DS button knocking off a few decimal points.
