RME has announced the HDSPe AIO Pro, a new 30-channel PCI Express sound card based with reference-class AD/DA conversion derived from the award-winning RME ADI-2 Pro Series.


Featuring level conversion, a powerful new headphone amplifier, and SteadyClock FS, the new HDSPe AIO Pro is based on the reference processors AK5572 and AK4490 derived from the high-end AD/DA converter ADI-2 Pro.

The Pro version provides professional users in the fields of studio and broadcast with the same high channel count, as well as analogue/digital input and output variety, of the HDSPe AIO.

In terms of technical features RME has completely reworked the HDSPe AIO Pro, defining the current state-of-the-art in PCI Express cards.

The HDSPe AIO Pro features a total of 30 channels (14 input, 16 output), each with a maximum of 24 bit/192 kHz. This PCI Express audio interface is an all-in-one solution, offering analogue stereo inputs and outputs, an additional headphone output, plus ADAT, SPDIF, AES/EBU and MIDI I/O. Like its predecessor, all in- and outputs can be used simultaneously.
