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 collapsable 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.

Built like a tank and simply awesome

I have 2 of these racks full of 500 modules and I simply love them. They are the heaviest duty built racks I have ever seen, the power supplies are way over-speced and will run anything you throw at it. Connections are rock solid too. Everything about these racks is first class. These may cost a little more, but you are getting more for your money over cheaper racks in my opinion. I have other racks that VK sells as well, and while they are all fine and work well, I will say these are the best I have seen/used/own. I will not buy any other rack in the future if I need a new 500 LB. I like them so much I have considered selling my older racks and replacing with these... I like them that much. This is an excellent product that I am very happy with.

Excellent product by Rupert Neve Designs.

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!

Great Build. Lots of Power

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...
