Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

I just bought a new Adi-2 DAC. How can I tell what firmware version it came with?

Watch the display while powering on ...
V. XX

EDIT:

Alternative:

- install driver
- execute fut utility

it will tell you whether the device needs an update.

Thanks, I'm on V 34. What's the newest version?

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

See product page -> Driver

There you see under "Flash Update" in the file description:

Update to version MADIface XT: 191/56/42, USB: 25, Pro 73. OctaMic XTC: 47/26. ADI-2 Pro: 213/98, ADI-2 DAC: 27/34, Digiface USB: 14, Dante: 36, AVB: 219, UFX II: 20/11/7.

So v.34

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

Hi, just got my new DAC unit. It was on v33. Tried the update but now the screen is all white.

I tried factory reset (hold encoder one and volume whilst turning on) but this does not work for me.
Please help.

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

Hello,

if nothing helps, please return the unit to the retailer for a repair or exchange.

Hello. Has there been a firmware update for toggling between IEM and Phones output?
I only ask because of this: https://www.forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.php?id=28229

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

Couple of ideas for a future fw upgrade:
(1) i only realised “later” that bass, treble, loudness, eq, etc commands were NOT working ‘cos the frequency arriving from my Audirvana player was always (except DSD) 768KHz, and the RME cannot apply any filter over 384KHz. It would be nice to specifify on the device screen if you use a function that does not work. In my case Audirvana was oversampling whatever content to 768 and I had to max out the RME dac to 384KHz within the Midi settings.
(2) some more color combos for the eq (pmc/dsd)

Thanks

For the first one, I think in the menu the item is not available, and in the top screen (details top screen) the funtion is not diplayed as active. For me it is sufficient, especially that upsampling to 768 kHz is quite an exotic (and useless) use of the product.

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

Please excuse my horrible noobie question: I have had a ADI 2 FS DAC version 2 for about a year (since June 2020). Are there any firmware updates I should absolutely install? I am pretty undemanding user. Pretty much stream Qobuz leaving all eq flat to speakers. I do use the volume control.

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

Hard to answer to this if you don't give us the version you have... I would say that if you are OK today, no new firmware is absolutely needed...

But try to install the last firmware and you'll be fine too. If you are up to date no arm will be done. And if you are not, you will have the last one with new functions and some minor bug fixes included. smile

I did mention that I have a V2 with the more extensive remote.

The version of your firmware I meant wink You can see it when you turn it on or in the settings menu (see the manual).

I have V 34. Thanks for your help!

Re: Firmware Update ADI-2 DAC 27/33, Pro 213/97

I'm sorry to be so dumb about this: is there a post which explains which versions of the firmware need to be updated and also how to do it? I have to say finding out about the firmware updates of the dac is not an obvious process.

It is, you just started in the wrong thread. Latest firmware is explained here:

MC gave you the link for the last update thread: you can read there the benefit of the last FW version.
For the "how", the manual is always a good place to start. wink You'll see: it is a very simple procedure. See page 11 smile

Thank you. Even I managed to do it. I am not a pro user so not that up on this. I know it is an obvious point but in instructions nothing can be assumed: nowhere is it stated that the DAC must be connected by USB cable to your computer. I know that the device has no Wifi or Bluetooth connection, but nevertheless some might forget this, like me for example!
