RME HDSP 9632 PCI Card

The RME HDSP 9632 PCI Card is the world's most versatile PCI Audio Interface making the dream of an All-In-One solution for every possible application come true. Equipped with the latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters with more than 110 dB signal to noise ratio, the HDSP 9632 transfers analog and digital audio data directly to a computer from practically any device.

The RME HDSP 9632 PCI Card is designed to be the top of the range of computer-based audio interfaces. As usual, RME has not made any compromises: Latest 192 kHz AD- and DA-converters with more than 110 dB signal to noise ratio, all inputs and outputs simultaneously operational, easy-to-install optional hi-quality analog expansion boards, the famous TotalMix, a newly developed sensational clock section with maximum jitter suppression of external clock signals - all this combines into a 'soundcard' that the world has been waiting for so long.

A PCI Express version, the RME HDSPe AIO is available as well.

The RME HDSP 9632 ships in a basic version including two RCA/phono breakout cables (headphone: TRS jack). Therefore all analog I/Os and the SPDIF I/O are unbalanced. XLR breakout cables are available as an option (headphone: Neutrik TRS locking jack), turning analog and AES/EBU into balanced mode.

The RME HDSP 9632 debuts SteadyClock (TM), a newly developed clock technology, combining professional features like maximum jitter suppression at full varipitch capabilities and software controlled sample rates.

Compared to the well-known DIGI96/8 series, the RME HDSP 9632 not only offers a further improved analog interface, but also all the features of the award-winning Hammerfall DSP series: All inputs and outputs simultaneously available, MIDI I/O and TotalMix, the DSP-based real-time mixer/router. Hardware updates through software and driver updates are risk-free thanks to the Secure BIOS Technology.

In short: The RME HDSP 9632 is the ultimate audio interface for PC or Mac, digital or analog.

Settings

Just click on the hammer symbol in the systray of the taskbar and the settings dialog of the RME HDSP 9632 comes up. The clear structured, easy to understand window plus the unique informative status windows for input signal, clock mode and sample rate make your work with Hammerfall DSP to a real pleasure.

When working with several digital sources it is not only necessary to know if these are properly locked, but also if they are totally synchronized. RMEs exclusive SyncCheck ® checks all input signals and displays their actual state, and thanks to our Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) concept you have all clocks and states under control - with ease.

What We Think

RME has solid drivers, and offers a very good sound for a great price. There are some interfaces that cost less for sure, but when you run RME for 3 years straight as I have with zero issues with hardware or software or drivers, you tend to stick with it. Totalmix is a very cool internal mixer for setting up headphone feeds, unbelievable flexibility...you can literally route any input or output anywhere at anytime.
