RME OctaMic II

Product Description
$1,255.00 $1,466.00
Maximum quantity available reached.
The OctaMic II provides 8-Channel 192 kHz / 24 bit AD conversion with eight hi-class microphone and line pre-amplification channels, featuring a combination of sophisticated components and approved RME technology.

Lowest distortion, excellent signal to noise ratio and perfectly linear frequency response transmit and amplify the microphone signals truly unchanged.

The OctaMic II includes some significant enhancements compared to the OctaMic:

    The balanced TRS inputs of the Neutrik Combo XLR jacks are phantom power-free and can be operated as real line inputs too. The improved design of the input circuits allows for a maximum input level of +21 dBu with a convenient gain range from 6 dB up to 60 dB.
    Improved signal to noise ratio (SNR) ADC 107.5 dB
    Improved THD, especially at higher gains
    Optimised heat dissipation by a new and larger housing with improved convection
    Internal wide range power supply with line filter, insensitive to voltage fluctuations
    Super-stable, short circuit proof 48 V phantom power

OctaMic II offers 8 balanced XLR mic / line inputs via Neutrik XLR/TRS combo jacks. Each channel contains switches for 48V phantom power, a low cut filter and phase reversal.
