The Rupert Neve Designs 5012 Duo Mic Pre-Amp is a dual-channel microphone pre-amplifier built with Rupert Neve's custom input and output transformer circuits. The pre-amplifier is electronically balanced and designed to minimize the effects of hum, radio interference, and other dissonant noise from altering your sound. The vertical version of this module is a half-rack unit intended to be mounted in a vertical rack or a vertical rack that is itself mounted in a conventional 19" horizontal rack.
The microphone inputs use a Transformer-Like-Amplifier chip and a toroidal Common Mode Rejection low-pass filter to reject frequencies above 150,000 Hz. This prevents odd high-frequency harmonics from altering the sound quality of your recording signal chain. After the high-frequency rejection stage, the pre-amp uses an input transformer that provides +25 dBu of input signal at unity gain without the need for a pad. The combination of an electronically balanced circuit with a true transformer amplifier stage allows the device to retain the Rupert Neve's sound in a small form factor.
The back panel of the device features an XLR input for channels A and B, an XLR output for each channel, and 4 x 1/4" TRS connectors for connecting Portico bussing modules to the signal chain.
