HDSPe AIO Pro

30-Channel 192 kHz PCI Express Audio Interface Card

RME introduces the HDSPe AIO Pro PCI Express interface card, the successor of the popular HDSPe AIO. The Pro version provides professional users in the fields of studio 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 has completely reworked the HDSPe AIO Pro, defining the current state-of-the-art in PCI Express cards.

SteadyClock FS

All inputs and outputs are simultaneously operational, even SPDIF (phono) and AES/EBU (XLR). Of course TotalMix, the unsurpassed flexible routing mixer and SteadyClock FS, RME's sensational clock technology with maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals, are on board too. HDSPe AIO Pro also supports the optional TCO for synchronization to timecode (LTC/video).

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 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.

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.

HDSPe AIO Pro -The completely reworked successor of the popular HDSPe AIO.

 


The HDSPe AIO Pro provides unique features:

  • Balanced* stereo analog in- and output, 24-bit/192kHz
  • All analog I/Os capable of 192 kHz, constant number of available channels
  • 1 ADAT digital I/O, supporting 192 kHz via S/MUX4 operation
  • 1 SPDIF digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 AES/EBU digital I/O, 192 kHz-capable
  • 1 High Power Headphone Output, separate DA-converter and playback device
  • 1 MIDI I/O with 16 channels of hi-speed MIDI via breakout cable
  • DIGICheck, RME's unique metering- and analysing tool
  • TotalMix FX: 760 channel Mixer with 42 bit internal resolution
  • Native PCI Express - no PCI to PCI Express bridge used
  • Outputs with Mute Relais
  • +24 dBu I/O Levels


* The HDSPe AIO Pro ships in a basic version with analog RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack). Therefore all analog I/Os are unbalanced. An analog XLR breakout cable is available as option (headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analog into balanced mode.

Word Clock Module (WCM)

Wordclock Module

The Word Clock Module (WCM) provides a galvanically isolated word clock input and two word clock outputs (BNC connectors). Both outputs have their own driver stages, providing an extremely low jitter signal. A push switch activates 75 Ohms termination for the hi-impedance input. SteadyClock, part of the PCI card, guarantees an excellent performance in all clock modes. Its highly efficient jitter suppression refreshes and cleans up any clock signal, and provides it as reference clock at the two outputs.

Installation is done in a convenient manner using the supplied bracket. No PCI slot on the motherboard is required. The module is internally connected via a 10-pin connector and a flat ribbon cable to the PCI card. Thanks to several LEDs (power, termination, LOCK) and the highly integrated concept of installation, first operation and usage are simple even for the inexperienced user.

More information could be found in the HDSP 9632 WCM manual.
