      It looks like a DAC well worth the price, but I for one would not have a clue how to gain advantage of it as it has so many options, I would get lost without an idiosyncratic explanatory manual written for laymen.

        Yes indeed, it seems to be great DAC and was positively reviewed. See also
        https://www.audiosciencereview.com/f...-review.13379/

        Somewhere in those reviews I read that one can get lost in all the functions the ADI-2 provides. But there seems to be a great manual shipped with it.

        There is also an RME user forum: https://forum.rme-audio.de

          The DAC is actually really easy to use. It is a plug and play option in the true sense. The beauty of this DAC is it's ability to appeal to both the casual as well as the professional listener.

            There was a time when I was very much interested in DACs. At one point exclusively in R2R DACs. With my former system I used to have an Aqua La Voce DAC (https://www.aquahifi.com/products.html). It was nice DAC, I loved it. But seeing what modern Delta-Sigma-DACs can do, I'd probably never go back to an R2R DAC. In that respect, the RME ADI-2 would be my DAC to go, I am sure of that.
            At one point I thought of a very simple design: a DAC with good volume control feeding active speakers. But I decided on the all-in-one Devialet box and I am very happy with it. But should my Devialet break down fatally, I'd jump on the ADI-2 and active speakers, preferably ATCs!

              I had a Metrum Adagio Pre / DAC (R2R DAC) before the RME ADI-2 DAC FS.
              It had 6 times the price of the RME, the RME sounds a little different, but i like it more now.
              Bass is a bit better (not stronger) and the highs and mids are the same quality for me (on SLOW Filter)
              I do not regret the change
