Russ Andrews has entered into a distribution agreement with world-famous pro-audio designer, Rupert Neve, to bring the company’s RHNP Precision Headphone Amplifier to UK audiophiles, enabling them to experience studio quality reproduction from their headphones.
Rupert Neve is a legend in the world of professional studio equipment. Having founded The Neve Company in the UK during the 1960s, he designed and manufactured mixing consoles for some of the world’s biggest names in the recording business, including George Martin and AIR Studios, London. Today these original consoles are highly sought after, with, for example, the console originally from AIR to be found in Bryan Adam’s Vancouver studio. Now residing in Texas, Rupert runs Rupert Neve Designs and continues to produce high-quality analogue studio equipment that is very highly regarded.
The Rupert Neve Headphone Amplifier has been designed for use in studios and homes for tracking, mixing and listening to music. Based on the headphone circuit in the company’s 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer, the RHNP is a dedicated 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier with specifically calibrated XLR/TRS +4dBu balanced line, unbalanced RCA and 3.5mm inputs. Suitable for use with a wide variety of sources, from professional mixing consoles, to DACs, to portable audio players and laptops, its effortless, wide-open sonic performance and the ability to drive any pair of headphones without compromise, allows users to enjoy their music with a new level of clarity. Rupert Neve Designs created the RNHP to accomplish one simple purpose: making any headphones sound their best.
The Rupert Neve RNHP is available now for £469, including free UK mainland delivery direct from Russ Andrews and is covered by the company’s 14-day home equipment trial and 12-month warranty.
