2-channel Tube Preamp with Mic-limiting Technology

Capture high-quality audio with the 2-channel Aphex Dual RPA 500 microphone preamp. Inspired by the Aphex 207D and channel preamps, the Dual RPA 500 features a solid-state front end and a tube back end. You get the best of both worlds! With 65dB of gain, you can use your favorite dynamic, condenser, or ribbon mics without worry. Dual front-panel 1/4'' connectors are perfect for plugging in instruments like guitars and basses.

Never miss a take due to clipping

The Aphex Dual RPA 500 has a unique limiter (patent pending) in the front end of the preamp which limits the output level of the microphone by as much as 20dB. Hence the name, Microphone Output Limiter. This allows you to get maximum noise performance and also allows maximum resolution for an analog to digital converter, all without worrying about clipping. When you don't have a chance at a second take, you want the Dual RPA 500's mic-limiter technology. This 500 Series module also features phantom power, phase reverse, and a 75Hz highpass filter. Double your fun with the Aphex Dual RPA 500 mic preamp.
