However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

RME Fireface 802 60-Channel 192 kHz USB/FireWire Audio Interface


The Fireface 802 comes packed with two headphone outputs on the front, rather than one. Apart from this, the overall design is similar to the Fireface 800, but with a more modern, soft and clean look. Inside the unit, SteadyClock technology provides perfect sound quality just like in the Fireface 800, although nearly everything else has been changed. The very latest AD/DA converters have a better signal to noise ratio, 192 kHz support and a 118 dBA dynamic range on playback, which also applies to the headphone outputs. The high power technology offers high volume whether high or low impedance phones are used.

The RME Fireface 802 has 4 analogue microphone preamps with manual gain settings, enabling ultra fast access and a speedy setup. The four inputs on the front use balanced Neutrik XLR/TRS combo sockets and also work as Hi-Z inputs for direct recording of guitars or other instruments. Reference level control is found on individual channels along with 2 more analogue channels in and out, and full support for the Advanced Remote Control and a whole range of other improvements.

FireWire 800 has been dropped in favour of USB 2, but the Fireface 802 still provides FireWire 400. To prevent connection issues to modern computers with FireWire, it has a 6 pin and a 9 pin socket. The Fireface 802 mixes 60 channel super low latency conversion with low latency operation via USB or FireWire and RME's driver stability and maintenance. It also includes active jitter suppression, professional reference level support and complete stand-alone functionality of all core features.

Loaded with the latest TotalMix FX, the RME Fireface 802 adds Class Compliant compatibility and can act as a professional interface for your iPad, in addition to being fully controllable by RME's TotalMix FX for iPad app. TotalMix FX offers a digital high-end mixer and signal router, driven by two powerful DSPs, with integrated effects and built-in monitoring control. All input and output channels come with luxury feature sets in comparison to a full-scale digital console. Effects include 3-band parametric EQ, adjustable Low Cut, Auto Level, Compressor, Expander, MS Processing and phase reversal. The Reverb and Echo effects unit is available to all channels. The RME Fireface 802 offers all these effects even at 192 kHz operation. TotalMix FX is also a perfect monitor controller with its integrated talkback function and much more. The control room features are available in the software or via the optional Advanced Remote Control. Fully flexible management lets you assign any physical output as Main or Phones output. Talkback, Listenback, Mono, Dim, Recall and External Input will then work automatically and as expected on the assigned outputs.

Fireface 802 lives up to the reputation forged by its predecessor, being a highly integrated pro audio solution, a full-blown studio, packed in a 19" enclosure. It retains the look and feel that made the Fireface 800 well-known, but with RME's latest technology inside that continues to rock musicians and producers around the world. The RME Fireface 802 is uncompromising in sound, stability and ultra-low latency operation, and offers an unrivalled professional feature set with identical operation on Windows PC and Mac.
