Rupert Neve Designs R6 6-Slot 500 Series Rack

Six-slot 500 Series rack
MFR# R6 Six Space 500 Series Rack

Product Description

With abundant power and versatile connections, the R6 delivers peace of mind for engineers who demand a higher degree of confidence in their 500 series racks.

Power You Can Trust

Power-wise, the R6 has more than double the required current for a 6-space chassis to prevent the power rails from failing under a higher than expected load. To help monitor and troubleshoot problematic modules, the R6 is equipped with LED current metering to show how much power is being used. The internal power supply itself has been carefully designed and double shielded to avoid significant magnetic induction in any of the channel positions. With such attention to providing and monitoring power, the R6 helps your modules realize their fullest potential.

Connect Like Never Before

With a plethora of connections available, the R6 backpanel is practically a patchbay on its own. The R6 features 8 channels of balanced I/O options including DB-25, XLR and TRS that may be used interchangeably. This versatility is especially handy when you are taking the R6 with you to another environment where you are unsure of the cables available, or if you need to convert DB-25, XLR or TRS connections to another format using the THRU functionality on channels 7-8.

Solid Steel Construction

The chassis is comprised of solid steel with bumpers to support the unit in both horizontal and vertical configurations and features a collapsible handle for portability. All connectors and fittings are of the highest quality to ensure that the R6 will hold up to many years of use.

A New Level of Confidence in the 500 Series

Because the R6 is built to 500 series specifications, it will work flawlessly with any properly designed 500 series module you wish to include in it. To help accommodate modules that are slightly out of spec, the R6 has variable-position screw holes to make the installation process go more smoothly. The 500 series link function can be enabled in pairs on the R6 using the link jumpers on Channels 1-2, 3-4, or 5-6. Matching blank panels are also available to cover any empty slots.

Please note: Slots 4-6 are intentionally produced slightly smaller than slots 1-3 in order to accommodate off spec modules. As a result, the R6 is unable to accommodate two 2-slot (double-wide) modules.

Love it!

Works great looks great. Great price

By Adam R on May 25, 2020

I like the R6 very much as I track PT HD at home and mix local talent at a local music store for youtube/facebook streaming. Most of the time I'm mixing streams on low end mixers such as Presonus and the R6 allows me to take my Pres out into the consumer world and get great results. Also, Vintage King rocks in my book. Never unhappy or even close to dissatisfied with their assistance.

I have 2. The connectivity and the power supply is doing well. I had an API w/dSub in 2013. Decided to go with the Neve'y!!!!

WoW

Great box. Love it.

By Glenn M on December 8, 2019

love it! I'm currently only running a Neve 1073lb in it, so lots of open space... another cool product to offer with this rack would be covers based on how many preamps are in it, covers that can screw onto the front (for quality and aesthetic reasons). Something to think about!

By Brianna A on March 11, 2019

Built like a tank. The connection variants are perfect for use on the go.

By Tonstudio G on March 6, 2019

A fantastic investment if you are serious about your 500 series gear. Simply will not run out of power and is built like a tank. The Neve name means something and this is no exception. Get one and start making quality music!

By Mark B on February 20, 2019

Just ordered mine. This is one of the best 6 rack 500 power supplies out there. Plus, there is a power button on the front which makes it easy to power down. Great price point for investing into the 500 module realm. Many thanks to my Audio Consultant Matt Knobel. Told me the benefits of this device!

By Jonathan on October 30, 2017

This thing is pretty solid. The wide range of connection options is a plus too. I feel confident that the R6 can power any module I throw at it. Now, if only there was a rackmount version...

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.
Phil T.
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!

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.
Michael D.
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.
Thomas W.
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.
