2-Channel Mic Pre

SKU: rup5C Category:


Simple and elegant, the Rupert Neve 5211 is the natural evolution of what is arguably the most famous gear in audio recording history: Rupert Neve’s microphone preamps. With two channels of the classic tone you know and love, 72dB of gain, sweepable high-pass filters for precise control, and the power of Mr. Rupert Neve’s dual-tap transformers with variable Silk saturation, the 5211 delivers a versatile, flattering, and uncompromising front end for any signal path. In short, it’s everything a mic preamp should be.

One of the key features of the 5211 is the Silk / Texture control. The Silk circuit was initially developed for the original Portico series mic preamplifiers, and was only a single switch – on or off – that added a specified amount of musical, pleasing harmonic saturation to the unit’s output stage.

Taking this concept one step further, the Texture knob is designed to adjust the actual amount of harmonic content from the source material.

Rupert Neve 5211 Features:

  • 72dB of gain — enough for passive ribbon mics on quiet sound sources
  • Fully transformerless input stage optimizes signal clarity
  • Custom output transformers with variable Silk saturation
  • Highpass filter, continuously variable from 20Hz–250Hz
  • Phantom power provides 48V phantom power to microphones
  • Level meter displays -30dBu to +22dBu, with reference to the output
  • Polarity reverses the polarity of the input signal
  • Rear-panel -6dB Line Out: secondary split off the output transformer with lower headroom; lets you fully drive the output of the 5211 without clipping converters and other devices
