Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 overview

  • 1Description

The Rupert Neve Designs RMP-D8 is an 8-channel Dante microphone preamplifier designed to deliver classic Neve tone, high-resolution A/D conversion, and reliable Dante network integration for recording and mixing engineers in broadcast, houses of worship, and live stage applications. The eight Class-A mic preamps, which offer up to 60 dB of gain in 1 dB increments, are paired with custom Rupert Neve Designs transformers. Mic or line inputs can be utilized via the eight XLR-1/4" combo jacks. Mastering-grade converters operate at up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution and feed digital signal simultaneously to dual Dante network ports and four 2-channel AES XLR outputs.

Each channel features selectable 48 VDC phantom power, polarity, a -10 dB pad, and an 80 Hz high-pass filter. RMP-D8 parameters can be viewed and adjusted locally via the large OLED display and front-panel controls, or remotely over the network. Built with touring in mind, the RMP-D8 boasts a reinforced steel chassis, redundant international power supplies, and latching IEC power cables.

Classic Rupert Neve Tone
The heart of the RMP-D8 lies in the modular mic preamp cards featuring Mr. Rupert Neve's custom transformer designs. Unlike other integrated Dante mic preamp designs that rely primarily on a single IC for gain & tone, each channel on the RMP-D8 has a fully-realized class-A microphone preamplifier feeding a custom transformer, maintaining the high standards of Rupert Neve Designs' standalone preamplifiers.
Mastering-Grade Conversion
Where converters are often an afterthought on combination devices, the 24-bit/192 kHz converters in the RMP-D8 are a product of years of careful listening. The precision-controlled internal clocking and enhanced jitter reduction enable capture of the full breadth of performance from the mic preamplifiers. Pull-up and pull-down rates are supported in addition to standard sample rates up to 192 kHz.
Fail-Safe Dante Integration
Two rear-panel RJ45 network ports accommodate primary and secondary Dante connections. When properly configured, device operation and signal transmission will continue in the event of a primary network failure. The selectable Gain Compensation mode mirrors the primary outputs with a -6 dB offset to deliver clean safety channels in case of clipping on the main Dante outputs. Additionally, the RMP-D8 is compatible with the Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via for direct computer integration.
Redundant Power Supplies
The dual power supplies are reliable and capable of operating anywhere in the world. The included IEC power cables feature a latching design to inhibit accidental disconnects.
Built for Touring
The reinforced steel chassis grants enhanced RF shielding and rugged reliability, making it ideal for use in challenging environments such as arenas, clubs, and concert venues.
Flexible Control
Operate the RMP-D8 locally via its large OLED display, easy-to-read meters, and convenient front-panel controls. Alternatively, configure and adjust the RMP-D8's parameters via the available software application, which can be used remotely over the network.
