Rupert Neve R6 500 Series Rack

Power-wise, the Rupert Neve R6 has more than 150% the required current for a 6-space chassis to prevent the power rails from failing under a higher-than-expected load. To help monitor and troubleshoot problematic modules, the Rupert Neve R6 is equipped with LED current metering to show how much power is being used. The internal power supply itself has been carefully designed and double-shielded to avoid significant magnetic induction in any of the channel positions. With such attention to providing and monitoring power, the Rupert Neve R6 helps your modules realize their fullest potential.

To ensure many years of use, the chassis is made of solid steel with bumpers to support the unit in both horizontal and vertical configurations, and features a collapsible handle for portability. And of course, all connectors and fittings are of the very highest quality.

Connect Like Never Before
With a plethora of connections available, the Rupert Neve R6 back panel is practically a patchbay on its own. The R6 features 8 channels of balanced I/O options including DB-25, XLR and TRS that may be used interchangeably. This versatility is especially handy when you are taking the R6 with you to another environment where you are unsure of the cables available, or if you need to convert DB-25, XLR or TRS connections to another format using the THRU functionality on channels 7-8.

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.

Link Jumper
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 gain reduction of two compressors (such as our 543 or 535 modules).

Current Meter
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.

Massive Connectivity
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.

Road-Ready Frame
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.
