AEA RPQ500

The AEA RPQ500 is a ultra-clean, high-gain preamp in a 500 series module. Featuring 81dB of gain and the AEA Curveshaper, capture every nuance of ribbon microphones new and old. This pre amp is designed to get the best out of your ribbon microphones so you know you will be getting the best performance possible every time. 

The RPQ500 module, designed after the successful RPQ preamp, provides the same ultra-clean, high-gain signal path that has earned AEA preamps their great reputation, in a 500 series package. The RPQ500 has been enhanced with additional features, turning it into a workhorse tool for your API 500 compatible rack. The preamp delivers the bandwidth and quietness needed for high resolution recording. JFET circuit topology provides all the dynamics, subwoofer bass, and fast transients that your microphones can record. The input impedance of 10,000 means the RPQ500 will not load down a mic and change its sound. Low Energy Storage™ circuit design instantly recovers from overloads for superior dynamic performance.

Features

  • One channel with 81dB of sweet and quiet JFET gain for all mics
  • High frequency CurveShaper™ EQ and low frequency proximity control
  • Mic and line inputs for mixdown EQ versatility
  • Switchable phantom power, polarity, line/mic, and EQ inserts
  • NoLoad™ 10k Ohm high-impedance circuitry providing better overall transients, frequency response, and higher output sensitivity
