RME Launches HDSPe AIO Pro 30-Channel 192kHz PCI Express Audio Interface Card

August 4 2020, 00:50
RME Audio introduced the HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express interface digital audio card, the successor to its popular HDSPe AIO card. The Pro version provides professional users in recording studios and broadcast with the same high channel count as well as analog/digital input and output variety of the HDSPe AIO. In terms of technical features RME says that it has "completely reworked the HDSPe AIO Pro, defining the current state-of-the-art in PCI Express cards."

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

The new HDSPe AIO Pro is based on the reference processors AKM AK5572 and AK4490 derived from RME's high-end AD/DA converter ADI-2 Pro. The analog input range also uses the circuit design of the ADI-2 Pro (+24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu). In addition, RME has enhanced the outputs with additional reference levels (balanced: +24 / +19 / +13 / +4 dBu; unbalanced: +19 / +13 / +4 / -2 dBu) which allows even more versatile integration into audio systems. The HDSPe AIO Pro features a dedicated attenuator in the output section, resulting in an increased signal-to-noise ratio and a lower output impedance at low reference levels.

Using also SteadyClock FS, the HDSPe AIO Pro features the latest clock and jitter rejection technology from RME. Based on a femtosecond clock, SteadyClock FS reduces the intrinsic jitter when converting from and to analog over all digital formats to a new all-time low.

A further highlight of the HDSPe AIO Pro is the newly developed, powerful and extremely transparent headphone output. Thanks to mute relay including switchable output levels, there is no unwanted crackling noise at the headphone output and the analog XLR and RCA outputs when switching on the computer.

The HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express audio interface card will be available from September 2020. The MSRP excl. VAT is 587.36 Euro. The card includes TotalMix Remote software for Windows and Mac, DIGICheck Spectral Analyzer, Vector Audio Scope, and various other audio analysis tools.
