Topic: Firmware Updates ADI-2 Pro 185 / 90 and DAC 26 / 25

Well, we were close! And the plan worked - releasing the firmware some time before Christmas we would be able to react early enough in case we overlooked something. Then, between Christmas and New Year, you could finally do what you always wanted to do - play around with the Pro and DAC and enjoy all its exciting and addicting functionality in full glory!

Which brings us to a small update, firmware 90 (Pro) and 25 (DAC). Here are the news:

- The new feature 'Do not Show Vol Screen' also made the Bass & Treble screen disappear. Fixed.

- Feature change: the PEQ's Q value can now be dialed up to 9.9 (instead of 5.0) in bands 1 to 3.

- DAC only: The Bit Test was shifted to the next level. Fixed.

Hi MC,

just updated the Firmware, RME ADI-2 PRO FS Black, and the chance to dial the Q in the EQ settings keeps being 5 as the maximum

May I be doing something wrong? :

No, you do it correct. The description is not accurate. The new option is only available for bands 1 to 3, mainly for bass room problems. This is a technical limitation and will not change. I will update the text.

Same reason why only band 1-3 can go below 200 Hz?

Hello Just need to find out the latest firmware version for the RME ADI-2 DAC.Form what I can see seems I currently have version V25.  I'm getting a second of sound or so cut off playing music. Not sure how to handle this.

Thanks

Hi. 

Can I sign up for email notification of next update RME ADI-2 DAC instead of checking here?

That is only going to create a subscription to this thread not to the forthcoming thread for the upcoming firmware.

Subscribing to the entire ADI-2 Pro & DAC forum should send a notification for any newly created thread (and possibly any other posts here) but that might be a bit much if one is only interested in the creation of one particular thread.

Re: Firmware Updates ADI-2 Pro 185 / 90 and DAC 26 / 25

True, sorry I forgot about this difference, in other subforums there is only one thread about fw upgrades.

Check this forum regularly in the next two weeks. A new firmware should be available until then.

Thanks guys. I didn't know it's coming soon. Can't wait smile

Re: Firmware Updates ADI-2 Pro 185 / 90 and DAC 26 / 25

Any plans to introduce computer based software for controlling the settings on the ADI-2?

Something similar to TotalMix : )

You can listen to a machine, but you won’t hear the music.

New ADI 2 DAC user here and i'm VERY satisfied with this excellent DA Converter BUT the UI/rotary encoder control system is very confusing... The above idea is brilliant! It would be useful if the controlling app released for ios/android devices also.

Another idea is to add 2 additional auto EQ Corrected SLOW/NOS Filters with additional equalization that kicks in only when the incoming signal is 44.1/48KHz

Best Regards

Hello, (Am french, sorry for my bad english...)

Thanks a lot for this GREAT product !

Well, I just upgraded my ADI-2 DAC to the latest firmware "v25", but now... I have "a new problem" :

I use the Device Mode "Mute Line vs. Phones".
It works great with the right EQ... But since this update, I CAN'T set my Headphone to "Hi-Power" anymore, in the Phones Settings.

I still NEED this feature with my Headphones, please.
Maybe I missed something in the latest firmware v25, or is it a bug ? I hope it's not a intentional limitation added in this version !

Thanks for your help...

Do you have Auto Ref Level disabled?

Re: Firmware Updates ADI-2 Pro 185 / 90 and DAC 26 / 25

Finally it's OK... I solved my problem :

Since I set "Auto Ref Level" to OFF (in Phones Settings), I CAN turn on Hi-Power. This is PERFECT !

jiw,
Thanks for your Help... That's right !
