How can you improve on perfection?

The RME Fireface 800 has been setting the bench mark for audio interfaces for over a decade now. Winning too many awards to name, producers and engineers worldwide have made it the cornerstone of their studio thanks to its powerful sonic performance and low latency, no fuss operation.
Now RME have exploded into 2014 with the RME Fireface 802! Don’t worry the 802 still has the heart of the 800 with 4 analogue preamps giving you that pure, completely transparent sound but now appears in a new, fresh, clean design. And it’s not just the outside appearance that gets a reboot, check out the new upgrades:

  • The very latest AD/DA converters are employed with a better signal to noise ratio
  • 192 kHz support and a 118 dBA dynamic range on playback
  • reference level control on individual channels
  • 2 more analogue channels in and out
  • full support for the Advanced Remote Control

We are relieved to say that the RME Fireface 802 – 60 Channel Audio Interface really does live up to its predecessors reputation and raises the bar yet again!

Here's what RME say about the RME Fireface 802 Firewire Interface

The 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:

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” 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.
