The Rupert Neve R6 gives users one of the best tools possible for getting the most out of their 500 series modules: a competent rack with a straightforward design and loads of power. In addition to being built in accordance with 500 Series specifications, the R6 also boasts a plethora of connection options. Connections include 8 channels of balanced I/O (including XLR, TRS, and DB-25) that can be used interchangeably, making the R6 a portable and versatile option for housing 500 Series modules.
In terms of power, the R6 should have everything users need to house the allotted amount of modules. In fact, the R6 has more than double the amount of power required for a 6-space chassis, simply to ensure that the power rails perform optimally. The power supply itself is double-shielded to appropriately guard against magnetic induction. The chassis is constructed from solid steel and configurable for both horizontal and vertical applications. There’s also a collapsible handle for added portability.
Massive Connectivity: Interchangeable XLR, TRS, and DB-25 I/O connections are provided to ensure that you can connect wherever you go with the backpanel patchbay
Double Power: Even with modules that overdraw the 500 series specification, the R6 has the reserve power to maintain the voltage
Power Monitoring: 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
Channel 7-8 Thru Conversion: The channel 7-8 thru connections can be used as a way to quickly and easily convert your signal from/to DB-25, XLR, and TRS connectors
48V Phantom Supply: Provide rock-solid phantom power to your microphones with the R6's robust 48V buss
"Built For The Road" 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
