High-end 32-Channel 192 kHz AD Converter with USB, AVB and MADI.
RME’s new and improved premium 32 channel converters. Now being only 1 RU heigh these will fit extra snug into your studio rack. Mastering grade analog to digital conversion.
With the M-32 AD and M-32 DA, RME presented two independent 32-channel converters in 2010, which quickly became the industry standard thanks to their high quality, reliability and number of channels. 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 channel counts.
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 installations.
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.
