The Rupert Neve Designs R6 is a versatile and robust 6-space 500 series rack with several notable features and technical specifications:
Power You Can Trust:
The R6 provides ample power, with more than 150% of the required current for a 6-space chassis to prevent power rail failures under high loads. It includes LED current metering to monitor power usage and a double-shielded internal power supply to minimize magnetic induction.
The R6 features 8 channels of balanced I/O options, including DB-25, XLR, and TRS, which can be used interchangeably. This flexibility is useful for various environments or when converting between different connection formats using the THRU functionality on channels 7-8.
Solid Steel Construction:
The chassis is built with solid steel and includes bumpers for support in both horizontal and vertical configurations. It also features a collapsible handle for portability, and all connectors and fittings are of high quality for durability.
500 Series Compatibility:
As the R6 is built to 500 series specifications, it works seamlessly with any properly-designed 500 series module. Variable-position screw holes accommodate modules that may be slightly out of spec. VCA buss link functionality is available on Channels 1-2, 3-4, or 5-6, allowing compatible compressor modules to share VCA control when their links are enabled. Matching blank panels are available to cover empty slots.
Optional Rack Kit:
An optional rack kit is available for R6 racks with serial numbers higher than 250 (shipped after June 2015). Removing the bottom feet allows the R6 to fit into a standard 19″ rack frame, occupying 3U of rack space.
Interchangeable XLR, TRS, and DB-25 I/O connections on the back panel ensure easy connectivity in various situations.
The R6 can provide sufficient power even for modules that exceed the 500 series specification, maintaining stable voltage levels.
An LED Meter on the R6 monitors current usage, helping prevent power shortages and assisting in troubleshooting modules that draw excessive power.
Channel 7-8 Thru Conversion: Channels 7-8 can be used to convert signals between DB-25, XLR, and TRS connectors quickly and easily.
48V Phantom Supply:
The R6 offers a robust 48V phantom power supply for microphones.
“Built For The Road” Frame:
The R6’s solid steel enclosure, rugged rubber feet for both horizontal and vertical mounting, and collapsible handle make it portable and suitable for on-the-road use.
DC Voltage to Units: +/-16VDC and +48VDC for phantom power.
Max Current: 1000mA for modules, 150mA for 48V phantom power.
Power Requirements: 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz, 50 Watts.
Weight: 9.5 lbs.
Dimensions: 13″ long x 7.5″ wide x 5.5″ high.
