Simplicity at first glance - Flexibility and reliability beyond

Integrating 16 analog inputs with a switchable sensitivity of up to +24 dBu per channel; 8 corresponding analog outputs; and an additional headphone output, the M-1610 Pro brings plenty of analog I/O to an studio setup.

With its coaxial and (optional) optical MADI, redundant AVB, four ADAT optical outputs, and redundant DC coupled outputs, the device represents one of the most versatile and highest-performing converters on the market.

Add Analog and AVB I/O to any existing MADI devices

At the request of recording engineers using a variety of analog effects and instruments in their sessions, RME have combined the outstanding performance of the M-32 Pro AD and DA converters into a single device, and at an unbeatable price-point.

When compared with the M-32 Pro series, which were designed primarily for fixed installations, the M-1610 Pro adds a selection of additional user-friendly features, for seamless operation in studio, live and broadcast. Input and output TRS jacks provide alternative connections for the D-Sub inputs (inputs 11-16) and D-Sub outputs (outputs 1-2), alongside redundant network ports, a headphone output for monitoring and trouble-shooting, and quick access buttons for source selection and volume.

The internal routing matrix provides visual control over all channels side by side - up to eight AVB streams (with a total of 128 channels); the coaxial and (optional) optical MADI ports (with each up to 64 channels); all analog I/O; and the ADAT outputs, for flexible routing between the 272 inputs and 298 outputs.

Lowest converter latencies and deterministic AVB networking with configurable network delay down to 0.3ms allow the M-1610 Pro to deliver samples, even from multiple devices, at incredible speeds - time-aligned with nanosecond accuracy across an entire network.

The AD and DA filters have been carefully optimized for different sampling rates, with a focus on accuracy and RME’s signature ‘transparency’ (nothing added, nothing removed). Together with SteadyClock FS, RME’s ultra-low jitter digital clock technology, the conversion to and from analog is state-of-the-art, at any level and across all digital formats. As a notable difference to similar devices, the three analog line levels per channel each offer the full
dynamic range of the converters.
