"I LOVE MY ADI-2 Pro FS R BE SO MUCH!!..."
"I feel like everything about this product was made just for me..."
"I just LOVE the sound!..."
"The ADI-2 Pro is like having music super powers!..."
I guess then that we in the Forum can assume that you're quite pleased with your new RME.
We are too!
Thanks for sharing your excitement, and know that your RME experience (ie: WOW!) is quite common!
You will find that this immense satisfaction is not short-lived, but rather it REMAINS Long-Term to benefit the user with more, and more enjoyable hours of listening...Year after year.
You'll forget about "Upgrades"
In my case, and as the Years add up on my ADI-2DAC, I still find myself thinking that...."I DON'T need to think about it!" The RME has everything in good order, and all I need to do is; Listen Our RME has simply proven itself as being a Trusted Associate with a Vital Role, and much less of an expendable, forgettable, and easily discarded Audio Toy.
That's a VERY High Standard, and serves as irrefutable proof that "The Emperor is indeed fully-clothed"!
This happens as a result of RME's proper engineering of the device from the outset, and a bit of good system integration effort from the User. No Voodoo Magic here.
Many happy years await You Mark!
*Mark, a matter that is frequently overlooked in these pleasant exchanges is one of Value
The RME sits high atop the performance ladder, and carries with it a Premium Price. Beyond the pretty box of Hardware is RME's strong Firmware support. Here, you will find that your Premium RME Product will remain a Top-Tier device well into the future. This protects your investment, lengthens it's useful life as a viable part of your audio chain, and enhances Value! That should mean something good to us all.
