Rupert Neve Designs has announced the 5211 Two Channel Microphone Preamplifier. They tell us that each channel has 72dB of gain, sweepable high-pass filters, variable Silk output saturation, and the same dual-tap output transformers found in the company’s Shelford Channel. These custom output transformers are said to provide both high-headroom and -6dB low-headroom outputs, allowing the user to fully drive the output stage without clipping converters and increasing the unit’s possible tonal variations.

A spokesperson told us, "Simple and elegant, the 5211 is the natural evolution of what is arguably the most famous gear in audio recording history: Rupert Neve’s microphone preamps. The 5211 delivers a versatile, flattering, and uncompromising front end for any signal path."

Rupert Neve Designs’ first product was the 5012 Duo Mic Preamp, released in 2005; the new 5211 represents an evolution of the 5012’s features, circuit design and form factor. The company says that, aside from the 19” width, “Shelford” style faceplate color, new dual-tap output transformers, higher voltage +/-21V rails and internal auto-switching power supply, the addition of their much-loved variable Silk circuit “saturates the class-A output stage to dial the harmonic content up to and beyond that of Rupert’s classic designs, while still providing the option of a pristine, open and modern sound when disengaged.”
 
Pricing and Availability:
The 5211 is now shipping worldwide, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,995.00 USD.
