RME Fireface 802 60-Channel USB and Firewire Audio Interface with Jitter Suppression Technology

The RME Fireface 802 renews RME’s reputation built on the legendary Fireface 800. 60 channels of audio, high-end microphone preamps, reference class converters, a complete effects section and operation at up to 192 kHz are the base for many more features.
A Legend Reborn
Ultra-low latency operation with USB or FireWire, combined with the legendary RME driver stability and maintenance. Active jitter suppression, individually switchable reference levels for all inputs and outputs, full stand-alone functionality, RME’s unique DIGICheck metering and analysis toolbox, and identical operation on Windows PC and Mac. TotalMix FX, RME’s digital high-end mixer and signal router, driven by two powerful DSPs, with integrated EQ, Dynamics and Reverb/Echo effects at up to 192 kHz, plus a built-in monitoring controller. The full-blown feature set also includes optional Class Compliant mode and operation with TotalMix FX for iPad, RME’s app to fully control the 802 from the iPad, without any computer. The easy-to-use app includes metering for all 90 channels plus effects bus, different setup screens, and complete control of all features. The Fireface 802 is a highly integrated pro audio solution, a full-blown studio, all within a 19-inch enclosure. An interface designed for users who don’t want to make compromises in sound, stability, and ultra-low latency operation, and who long for an unrivaled professional feature set. Once again a milestone interface from RME, including the best of the best and even a bit more.
Inputs and Outputs
The Fireface 802 provides 60 channels of audio, 30 input and 30 output channels. All inputs and outputs can be used at the same time. Up to 12 analog and 18 digital channels can be recorded onto 30 tracks separately. The Fireface 802 has 12 analog I/Os. 8 balanced TRS on the back and 4 XLR inputs with Mic/Instrument preamps on the front. Two hi-power TRS stereo phones outputs provide high volumes even with hi-impedance headphones playback channels 9/10 and 11/12.
Sound Quality
Like other RME products before the Fireface 802 combines excellent analog circuit design with the latest digital conversion technology. All balanced TRS & XLR I/Os as well as the two phones outputs offer outstanding low noise and distortion values. In the best RME tradition and product philosophy converters and preamps don’t produce ‘sound’, they do not add or remove anything from the source signal, just capture it as it is. Equipped with the latest low latency A/D and D/A converter chips, all I/Os operate at up to 192 kHz and reach 118 dBA dynamic range on playback - even both headphone outputs. Their high-power technology delivers high volume no matter if high or low-impedance phones are used. Due to its efficient jitter reduction, RME’s superior SteadyClock guarantees state-of-the-art AD/DA conversion, even when clocking to an external clock source. Every input and output is individually switchable to these common professional studio levels, minus 10 dBV, plus 4 dBu, HiGain equivalent to plus 2 dBV, plus 13 dBu and plus 19 dBu for digital full scale. All outputs can be used for ASIO Direct Monitoring (ADM) purposes.
Professional High-Transparency Preamps
For Microphones and Instruments with Low Latency Conversion. The 802 has four high-transparency preamps, also with low latency converters. Microphone and instrument preamps of the 802 use the classic technology of the OctaMic II, a high-end preamp for supreme sonic demands and critical applications, like the professional recording of classical concerts. The symmetrical preamp design impresses with extremely low distortion, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and a perfect linear frequency response. A premium solution for transmitting and amplifying any audio input truly unchanged, be it high-level stage or typical studio signals, lower-level and high-impedance instruments, or dynamic, condenser, and ribbon microphones. The pot-controlled gain of up to 60 dB, adjustable over a range of 54 dB, is individually set for every preamp on the front of the 802. The four inputs on the front use balanced XLR/TS combo sockets and operate alternatively as Hi-Z inputs. Directly plug in up to four guitars or other instruments - no other hardware is required. Each channel can be individually switched to 48V phantom power or instrument mode. LEDs for signal, clip, TS operation, and activated phantom power provide an overview on the unit's status. The Fireface 802 follows RME's tradition of providing flexible and expandable audio systems. Adding additional preamplifiers or more analog inputs is easily done via the dual ADAT optical I/Os on the rear. The Fireface 802 has one professional AES/EBU I/O operating at up to 192 kHz.
