The ADI-8 QS from RME is their top of the line, eight-channel analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter that balances excellent analog circuit design with the latest in converter technology. The combination provides conversion of the highest order along with a healthy supply of features.
The unit is outfitted with both balanced 1/4" phone input/output connectors, along with 25-pin D-sub connectors, the latter providing slightly higher maximum output levels. Conversion is available to/from AES/EBU and ADAT optical at sample rates up to 192kHz for the AES/EBU streams and 96kHz for ADAT.
Efficient jitter reduction via SteadyClock guarantees prestine sound quality while Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) will retain the last valid sample frequency in case of a loss of the input signal. SyncCheck ensures perfect synchronization and excellent detection of errors, allowing multiple units to be stacked and operated sample-aligned, using word clock. All settings are stored when the unit is switched off.

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.
Qualifying main centers include:
Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.
While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).
If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.
Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
