New RME M-1610 Pro AD/DA converter
Posted on: Friday 25th of September 2020
First announced at NAMM 2020, the M-1610 Pro combines the outstanding performance of RME’s M-32 Pro AD and DA converters into a single 1U unit. A multitude of signal integration options offer professional studio, live and broadcast users extensive analogue and digital I/O connections, including AVB (Audio Video Bridging) network functionality, to match the audio quality in both directions.
A powerful on-board headphone output provides built-in monitoring for all incoming signals, with all analogue channels switchable between three different line levels (+13/+19/+24 dB). Finally, redundant power supplies offer automatic failsafe for live and ‘mission critical’ applications, making the M-1610 Pro one of the most versatile and powerful professional audio converters on the market.
Originally developed for the award-winning ADI-2 Series of converters, RME’s femtosecond clock is accurate to 10-15 (or one quadrillionth) of a second, reducing intrinsic jitter (when converting from and to analogue, over all digital formats) to a new all-time low.
With a flexible and user-friendly interface, the web remote provides extended control of the M-1610 Pro’s many features such as adjusting input reference levels; channel routing for all analogue and digital I/O; changing Word Clock and sample rate settings; and saving / recalling presets.
Connection to the web remote can be made via AVB, or via USB when not using the M-1610 Pro as part of an AVB network.
The M-1610 Pro expands RME’s growing line-up of professional AVB devices, as well as providing MADI-based systems with additional audiophile-level I/O for high-end multi-channel recording, mixing and monitoring. Alongside RME’s newly released RME 12Mic and RME AVB Tool, the M-1610 Pro demonstrates RME’s strength for innovation and developing ground-breaking audio solutions.
