Unlike other 500 series enclosures that are usually rack mounted, Radial Engineering's Workhorse Cube is designed to conveniently sit on the desktop, be carried around the studio or be recessed into the work surface. Two sets of screw-on flanges are supplied to either fully recess the Cube into the desktop or have it angled at 30 degrees for optimal viewing. For those who want to optimize signal-to-noise, a top-mounted carry handle makes it easy to move the Cube around the studio, thus allowing the engineer to position instrument and microphone preamps as close to the source as possible.
Mounting modules is easy. The Cube comes complete with Phillips screws to secure the modules as they slide into position via the 15 pin EDAC connector. This is wired following the original API standard while unused pins are used to feed the Omniport ¼ TRS connector. This innovative connection allows the 500 series manufacturer to personalize their modules by assigning the Omniport to perform a module-specific task. This could, for instance, be a key input on a gate, an instrument input on a preamp or an effects send and receive port should this be advantageous.
To add flexibility, the Cube is equipped with standard XLR i/os and is supplemented with ¼ TRS connectors. These can be used as multi outputs or for cross-patching. Once modules are inserted, an innovative feed switch replaces the old API patch cord system with an elegant solution that immediately sends the output from the first slot into the second and then to the third. And with three slots, the Cube makes it easy to create a channel strip by combining a PowerPre preamp, Q3 coil EQ and a Komit compressor-limiter. A second link switch advances the standard once again by replacing the old solder for stereo approach with a simple switch. Now any two modules that are designed to be stereo-linked can be arranged this way by simply toggling a switch.
To ensure maximum signal handling, the Cube comes complete with an 800 milliamp external power supply. This provides more than 250 milliamps per module via a pooled supply to allow high demand devices such as the Radial PowerTube to be comfortably supplied while still providing sufficient current to feed two other standard modules. Full AES compliant 48 volt phantom is of course supported and activated via the preamp’s usual phantom power on-off switch. The Cube's external switching power supply may be fed using 100V to 240V thus enabling the Cube to travel around the world by simply changing the electrical cable. And as with all Radial products, the Cube is made ultra roadworthy with a 14 gauge steel enclosure and top of the line connectors throughout.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
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.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
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.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
