RME OctaMic II is an 8 Channel Mic Preamp and AD Converter with ADAT and Analog Outputs.

Pure, simple and very portable 1RU rack unit. Great sounding RME Preamplifiers at an amazing price point.

Lowest distortion, excellent signal to noise ratio and perfectly linear frequency response transmit and amplify the microphone signals truly unchanged.

The OctaMic II provides 8-Channel 192 kHz / 24 bit AD conversion with eight hi-class microphone and line pre-amplification channels, featuring a combination of sophisticated components and approved RME technology

Each channel contains switches for 48V phantom power, a low cut filter and phase reversal. Amplification can be set between 6 and 60 dB. LEDs for signal, clip, and activated phantom power give a complete overview on the unit's status.

The balanced line level output signal is available at the back of the unit via 8 stereo TRS jacks.

The 8-Channel AD-conversion of the OctaMic II operates at up to 192 kHz. The digitised signal is available simultaneously at the double ADAT output (S/MUX, up to 96 kHz), and at a DB-25 connector (4 AES/EBU outputs, up to 192 kHz). The digital part can be clocked internally (master) and externally via word clock, AES/EBU and SPDIF.
