Rupert Neve Design R6 - Six Space 500 Series RackRegular price £575.00
The Rupert Neve Designs R6 is a powerful and versatile 6-slot 500 series rack.
The Rupert Neve Designs R6 delivers an impressive 150% of the power required by 6-slot chassis to avoid any modules being starved of power even with power-hungry modules. In addition, the R6 features LED current metering designed to monitor the current being used and troubleshoot any problematic modules. The Power supply of the R6 itself has been carefully designed to avoid significant magnetic induction that could affect the performance of modules.
Perhaps more interestingly, the R6 offers a wealth of connectivity with 8 channel of balanced I/O options including TRS Jack, XLR and db25, which can all be used interchangeably. Not only is this great to ensure the R6 fits into your studio immediately, it also allows you to use parallel processing. Another advantage is that the R6 can be used to change the type of cables from db25, XLR or TRS using the THRU functions of channel 7 and 8. A link jumper lets you pair modules 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 together for stereo operation.
The R6 is built like a tank from solid steel and features bumpers on the side to let you position your chassis horizontally or vertically. A collapsible handle is also included to make it easy to transport your chassis anywhere. Built to the 500-series specs the R6 will deliver optimum performance with well-designed 500-series modules and features variable screw holes to accommodate some modules that may be slightly out of spec.
SIX CARD SLOTS WITH SERIOUS POWER
Each card slot is designed to fit a standard 500 series module. Even with modules that overdraw the 500 Series specification, the R6 has enough reserve power to maintain proper voltage.
There are three link jumpers, which can be individually set to allow linking on Channels 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. The link function is typically used to link the VCA circuitry of compressors (such as our 543 module).
An LED meter monitors the R6 current usage to ensure that you never run short on power. This meter can also be useful for troubleshooting a module that is severely overdrawing its allotment.
BULLETPROOF +48V PHANTOM SUPPLY
Provide rock-solid phantom power to your microphones with the R6’s robust 48V buss.
Interchangeable XLR, TRS, and DB-25 I/O connections are provided to ensure that you can connect wherever you go.
CHANNEL 7-8 THRU I/O
The channel 7-8 thru connections can be used as a way to quickly and easily convert your signal from or to DB-25, XLR, and TRS connectors.
A solid steel enclosure, two sets of rugged rubber feet for horizontal and vertical mounting and a collapsible handle make the R6 completely portable and ready for the road.
UNIVERSAL VOLTAGE IEC INPUT
The IEC power input accepts 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz input with a 50 Watt draw.
