Neve 88RLB 500 Series Microphone/Line Preamp

True Neve 88RS mic preamp in a 500-series format, with transformer-coupled Mic input, electronically balanced Line and DI inputs and Line output
MFR# 88RLB

Product Description

Considered Neve’s ultimate analog console, the 88RS is renowned for its clean, warm tone and high-quality components. The Neve 88RLB preamp combines everything you love about the original 88RS preamps with extra features like the REGenerate function, a sweepable high-pass filter, intelligent phantom power control and more in a compact 500-series format.

CLASS-LEADING COMPONENTS

The Neve 88RLB preamp features the same innovative design and class-leading components as the original 88RS console preamps to capture Neve’s legendary sound quality. The new Mic/Line/Combo jack makes it easy to quickly connect any device while working in the studio so you never have to break your creative flow. Additional 1/4-inch TRS jack Line and DI inputs on the rear easily integrate into your existing setup. And with a transformer-coupled Mic input and electronically balanced inputs and outputs, you can rest assured that your signals will always sound their best.

ALL NEW FEATURES

The Neve 88RLB preamp features innovative REGeneration technology, which allows you to feed Line and DI inputs through the Mic input transformer to inject any instrument with legendary Neve sound. A sweepable high pass filter from 31 Hz to 315 Hz lets you roll off low end with total transparency. The intelligent phantom power control protects your line level devices by only engaging when the microphone input is in use. And with useful features like a -20 dB pad and phase reversal controls, the Neve 88RLB preamp is studio workhorse.

LEGENDARY NEVE SOUND

For nearly 20 years, the world’s top musicians, composers and engineers have relied on the pristine sound of the 88RS console. Weighing in at nearly two tons, it can be tricky to fit a fully functional analog Neve console in a home studio. Now, with the Neve 88RLB preamp, you can capture legendary sound in any studio.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
