New for this year’s NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, we are pleased to announce two new products from Rupert Neve Designs: The RNDI-S Stereo Active Transformer Direct Interface, and the RMP-D8 8-Channel Class-A Remote Control Microphone Preamplifier.
The RNDI-S is a new stereo DI with the same topologies & tone made famous by the highly-regarded single-channel RNDI. Its signature sound is the product of custom Rupert Neve-designed transformers and discrete FET amplifiers, delivering a powerful, vibrant direct sound worthy of the Rupert Neve name. Featuring dual TRS inputs with THRU connections for mono sources and a stereo 3.5mm jack for consumer devices, the RNDI-S delivers the full harmonic depth of your basses, guitars, keys, and all stereo sources.
The RNDI-S will be shipping in late January 2018, with an MSRP of $599 USD.
