AEA RPQ Ribbon Mic Preamp

The AEA RPQ is a 1U rack-mountable two-channel ribbon microphone preamp with tone-shaping curves, excellent response and noise figures.

All ribbon microphones exhibit a strong bass proximity effect, so the AEA RPQ pre-amp comes equipped with Curve-Shaping to let you overcome this when you are working up close to your sound source. You can boost the top end with the HF control and trim the bottom with the variable LF control, for best response.

Clean, quiet and efficient in operation, the RPQ comes equipped with phantom power for ribbon mikes that need it, although the same exemplary performance is available for whichever microphone you put through it.

Like all the products from AEA the RPQ has gathered rave reviews from users across the entire spectrum of sound recording - as you'd expect when you create the perfect tool for the job.
