32-kanals 192 kHz DA-converter med MADI og AVB I/O, 1U
Since then, not only the converter technology but also the
requirements of pro audio users have evolved in all kinds of areas -
professional studios, immersive sound installations, live sound systems
and even applications in the industrial sector requiring high analog
Solutions for modern productions
Redundant power supplies, more compact housings, network functionality -
these and other wishes were brought to us by our customers for a
revised 32-channel converter series. With the new M-32 DA Pro and M-32
AD Pro, RME meets the diverse requirements of current productions and
Reference in analog and digital
Based on state-of-the-art, high-resolution converter components and a
fully balanced analog circuit design, the new M series offers a
signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB(A) with extremely low THD values, which
places the converters in the reference class.
Linear and transparent
Each of the 32 channels enables AD/DA conversion with up to 192 kHz
sampling frequency. The internal filters are based on the recently
introduced ADI-2 Pro reference converter and allow a completely linear
frequency response (up to 0 Hz at the output).
AVB - The future of network signal transmission
In addition to the two fully equipped MADI I/Os including separate
signal routing, the new M-32 DA Pro and M-32 AD Pro feature an AVB
interface based on the open network standards IEEE 802.1 and 1722.1,
enabling transmission of the 32 analog channels at a maximum 192 kHz
sampling rate via a single Ethernet cable.
Combined with external AVB switches, the new M-Series converters can be
quickly, easily and reliably integrated into more complex network
structures thanks to the comprehensive time-synchronous signal
processing of the AVB protocol.
The open AVDECC 1722.1 control protocol as part of AVB allows users to
use external controllers from different manufacturers to control almost
all device functions. In addition, a web interface and a JSON API are
available - both via the network connection and the integrated USB port.
For maximum compatibility with a variety of analog hardware, the
individual channels of the M-32 AD Pro and M-32 DA Pro can be operated
with different line levels - each with full resolution of the
converters. Besides +19 dBu and +13 dBu, the new M-Series is one of the
few solutions available on the market that also allows working with the
SMPTE® recommendation of +24 dBu at 0 dBFS.
Everything at a glance
The combination of level displays and channel labelling fields conveys a
familiar analogue feeling but proves to be an almost indispensable
advantage in daily practice. Using the supplied transparent papers,
users can create individual channel labels and securely affix them
behind a magnetic cover. This always gives a comprehensive overview of
analog channel assignments.
