High on quality, high on gain, low on noise. The RPQ is a perfect clean canvas for any microphone, condenser or dynamic.

  • 80 dB of sweet JFET gain via Grayhill 71 switch
  • Phantom & non-phantom inputs
  • CurveShaper EQ and low frequency proximity control
  • Switchable 48v, polarity and EQ
  • Gain: 80 dB @ 1kHz, balanced-in to balanced-out
  • Noise: < 2 dB, EIN: < -128 dBu (A-weighted)
  • Impedance: > 10 kOhms in
  • Rotary potentiometers detented at mid-way point

The RPQ is a great preamping tool for providing ultimate cleanliness and complementing moving coil, tube and FET microphones. The RPQ differs from AEA's TRP model in that it offers separate phantom and non-phantom powered inputs, whilst under the hood a special JFET circuit design helps build up to 80dB of crystal-clean gain.
