Rupert Neve Designs R6

Power You Can Trust

Power-wise, the 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 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 R6 helps your modules realize their fullest potential.

Connect Like Never Before

With a plethora of connections available, the R6 backpanel is practically a patchbay on its own. The R6 features 8 channels of balanced I/O options including DB-25, XLRand 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.

Solid Steel Construction

The chassis is comprised of solid steel with bumpers to support the unit in both horizontal and vertical configurations, and features a collapsable handle for portability. All connectors and fittings are of the highest quality to ensure that the R6 will hold up to many years of use.

A New Level of Confidence in the 500 Series

Because the R6 is built to 500 series specifications, it will work flawlessly with any properly-designed 500 series module you wish to include in it. To help accommodate modules that are slightly out of spec, the R6 has variable-position screw holes to help make the installation process as smooth as possible. The 500 series VCA buss link function can be enabled in pairs on the R6 using the link jumpers on Channels 1-2, 3-4, or 5-6. Enabling link allows compatible compressor modules like the 543 to share VCA control when their links are enabled. Matching blank panels are also available to cover any empty slots.

Optional R6 Rack Kit

To mount the R6 into a standard 19" rack frame, there is a rack kit available for R6 racks with serial numbers higher than 250 (shipped after June 2015). When the bottom feet are removed, the R6 takes up 3U of rack space.

500 series Blank Panel

To fill gaps in the R6, the 510: Blank Panel can be used to create a more seamless look.

Solid State Logic VHD Mic Pre

The SSL VHD Pre Module is an incredibly versatile unit that can deliver ultra clean recordings but also offers VHD at the flip of a switch all in a convenient 500 series format. VHD technology is now available for studios of ANY size, what could be better!
