  • 1Description

The RNHP Precision Headphone Amplifier from Rupert Neve Designs is a dedicated 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier that has a specifically-calibrated +4 dBu balanced line input, an unbalanced RCA input, and a 1/8" stereo mini-jack input, housed in a rugged VESA-mountable steel chassis.

The headphone amplifier is based on the output circuit in the popular 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer and has wide-open sonic performance with the ability to drive any pair of headphones up to 600 Ohms. The RNHP allows you to perform, mix, and enjoy your music with a new level of clarity. The 24V power supply is also included.

Precision Sound
Wide-open, extremely detailed sound quality allows you to get the most out of your headphones
Dedicated Power
High-power, high-headroom design can effortlessly drive high-impedance (up to 600 Ohms) headphones even during the loudest, most dynamic tracking sessions
Reliable Translation
The near-zero output impedance (.01 Ohm at 1 kHz), direct-coupled amplifier design provides for excellent translation with any pair of headphones
Precision Stereo Potentiometer
The highly damped stereo potentiometer is designed to give you precise level control and maintain perfect left-right balance
Professional Line Input
The calibrated +4 dBu line input is selected with the "A" switch. The combo jack accepts either XLR or TRS inputs for balanced professional devices
RCA Input
The unbalanced RCA input is calibrated for -10 dBV signals and is selected with the "B" switch. The RCA jack is commonly used with home stereo devices or prosumer equipment
1/8" Input
Stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) input is specifically calibrated to work with mobile devices like smartphones, computers, and digital cameras
VESA Mount
The VESA 100 compatible mount enables you to mount the RNHP wherever it needs to be. Common mounts are pole-mount arm for mic stands, pivoting multi-arm desk mount, and wall / surface mount for securing upside-down under a table, music stand, or other studio furniture
Steel Clamshell Chassis
The RNHP's rugged, solid-steel chassis is built to a high industrial standard with an overhang to protect the connectors and main level control from glancing blows, as well as shock-absorbing rubberized feet
24 VDC Input
The RNHP can be powered using either the included 6W power supply or a 24V, 0.25A min battery (sold separately)

    Rupert Neve Designs RNHP reviews

    RNHP Precision Headphone Amplifier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one headphone amp to rule them all! Stop reading this review. Just scroll to the top and buy it. The Rupert Neve RNHP headphone amp is nothing short of unbelievable. The RNHP is a desktop-sized amplifier based on the headphone amp circuitry in the 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer. Technical specs aside (you can go read those elsewhere), listening experience with the RNHP is phenomenal. The longer I've been producing music, the more important I think it is to use a proper headphone amp like the RNHP to drive your headphones or in-ears. I primarily use 64 Audio A10 custom reference in-ears and the biggest thing I notice when listening through the RNHP is an amazing clarity and smoothness to the sound spectrum. Comparisons with other devices or amps leave me with this primary take-away: there is so much power with the RNHP and such a low resistance that it's able to deliver both powerful transients and amazing detail immediately following any transients. The best way I can describe it is that I feel like there's no recovery period following a strong impulse, a recovery period where there's usually a loss of detail. The RNHP is able to deliver an incredible amount of detail, distance, and depth. My life is changed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has changed my life! First, I am an audiophile, composer, musician, and armchair recording engineer. I fully appreciate the fine details of great audio. This amp has changed my life! For years I've been listening through my Sony 7506 headphones directly from my computer, or through a Focusrite Scarlett Solo. I figured these were of high enough quality that I didn't think twice about it. I'm 66 years old and figured my ears were not as great as they used to be. Now matter what I listened to, I could hear and cringe at the shrill high frequencies. I got used to it and simply kept the volume down. I decided to see what a really good headphone amp would do. Maybe it wouldn't change a thing. Well, I got this Neve today and cannot believe my ears! The shrill is completely gone, and I can crank it up, no problem! It is so weird because I still prepare to cringe at the usual spots, and the shrill never comes! It'll take time to lose that reflex. The warmth is amazing, like a tube amp! My ears are fine, thank you! I love this thing! I can easily tell the difference in audio quality between various recordings. I'm going through a lot of DVDs and listening to my favorite music like I've never heard before! I may even upgrade my headphones to Sennheisers. Why not! My ears and new amp deserve it!
