The MADI Converter converts MADI digital audio streams from optical format to coaxial and from coaxial to optical. The compact 19" housing with 1 unit height contains six fully independent bi-directional converters. The MADI converter is an ideal companion to RMEs MADI Bridge. Its six coaxial inputs and outputs can be converted to optical, which is advantageous in live and installed setups, and for longer cable lengths. The device can be placed underneath the RME MADI Bridge ideally; the coaxial in- and outputs of the two devices will be right next to each other vertically, and can be connected with short patch cables easily.
