Topic: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 26 / 30 - Remote it!
Remote it! ADI-2 DAC is ready for programmable remotes
Our latest two ADI-2 DAC firmwares, see
included an undisclosed, new functionality. We thought with DSP 29 we already nailed it, but found a small display bug when adjusting Balance, so we are forced to release version 30.
And here we go: RME's ADI-2 DAC enters remote paradise!
Users that own a freely programmable remote, either as part of a home automation system, or self-build with infrared transmitters, or a programmable remote from renowned manufacturer Logitech can now use their remote to control the ADI-2 DAC. RME released a document listing all the supported remote commands and codes:
And Logitech added all these commands/codes to their data base for the RME ADI-2 DAC:

The new, extended remote support covers more than the original 11 buttons of RME's handy inclusion. Users now also have direct access to the 31 'remap' actions/commands, with no remapping necessary. The infrared code list also includes Bass +/-, Treble +/-, and Balance Left/Right control - yes, these functions can now also be remoted if you have a programmable one with enough buttons
Furthermore, we found that programmable remotes often do not support a long press on the power button, which is necessary for the DAC. Not only that a short press interrupts the AutoDark mode, we also prevent an accidental switch-off this way, exactly as with the Standby button at the unit. Therefore RME added a specific power-off code that turns off the unit immediately, making it possible to use a third party remote also for switching the unit into standby.
RME's total remote approach allows to set Polarity, DAC filters, Dim, AutoDark, Crossfeed, Loudness, display control and many more features and functions, comfortably from the preferred listening position, or automated through custom remote solutions.
Included in this firmware update
- Fix: State Overview warning Emphasis did not fit the screen
- Improved: Warning messages Emphasis and Non-Audio newly referred to inputs optical or coaxial
As always with RME the firmware update is free for all owners of an ADI-2 DAC, and very easy to perform.
