RME's MADI line is now extended by hi-class multichannel converters with 16 and 32 channels.
The M-series converters have been conceived and optimized for professional studio, stage, and broadcast applications.
Packed into 2U height the M-32 AD offers a 32-channel AD-conversion to MADI and ADAT in reference quality.
The symmetrical analog circuit design is designed to guarantee S/N and THD specs across a wide analog level range.The device not only works up to 192 kHz, but also reaches a real-world signal-to-noise ratio of 116 dBA - on all channels, according to RME.
Further features are analog limiters for an efficient protection of the analog in outs against overload, three hardware reference levels up to +24 dBu, MADI and ADAT I/O, analog inputs via 6.3mm TRS and D-sub connectors, remote control via MIDI and MIDI over MADI, and operation across a wide range of mains voltages.
Both converters are also available as 16-channel versions. Except for the reduced channel count M-16 AD and M-16 DA are identical to their bigger brothers.
The converters of the M-series are expected to be available in May 2009.
