The name of Rupert Neve is synonymous within the recording industry. For more than 50 years Neve has represented the pinnacle of professional audio design and engineering.
In 1961, British electronics designer Rupert Neve formed the company that still bears his name. From the very beginning, Neve Electronics specialized in the finest professional audio consoles and systems, utilizing Class A designs and high-quality components to produce equipment unmatched in performance in the industry at the time.
This passion, expertise and quality continues today with Neve still producing some of the finest recording studio hardware available. Enter the RNHP. Initially designed as high quality headphone amplifier for the studio, it quickly became clear to us, that this was a special piece of equipment that also deserved to be in the home.
For much equipment, the headphone output is an afterthought. Most products with integrated headphone amps have large feature sets, small footprints, and relatively low price points. This leads to comprised power and audio quality of the headphone amplifier itself, which can lead to a number of issues in real world usage such as low headroom, unreliable performance, and a lack of focus. The perfect habitat for the RNHP!
High-power, high-headroom design can effortlessly drive high-impedance (up to 600 Ohm) headphones even during the loudest, most dynamic moments and the near-zero output impedance (.01 Ohm at 1kHz), direct-coupled amplifier design provides for excellent translation with any pair of headphones.
Machined from high grade aluminium and finished in anodized red, the highly damped and perfectly weighted stereo potentiometer is designed to give you precise level control and maintain perfect left-right balance.
The RNHP is designed with a wide range of inputs, which pretty much cover all bases. They include stereo RCA (Phono sockets), Stereo 3.5mm input specifically calibrated to work with mobile devices such as phones, tablets and laptops and a professional, calibrated +4dBu line input. The combo jack accepts either XLR or TRS inputs for balanced professional devices.
Finally, the RNHP is housed in a rugged, solid-steel chassis, built to a high industrial standard with an overhang at the back to protect the connectors and main level control. Shock-absorbing rubberized feet are fitted to the underneath to ensure optimum stability on any surface.
