Rupert Neve Designs RNHP Precision Headphone Amplifier

24v reference-quality headphone amplifier

Product Description

Whether you’re tracking, mixing, or just listening to your favorite music, your headphone amplifier is just as important to the final sound output as your headphones. Yet, there are so many headphone amps with compromised sonics, headroom, and power supplies. To address these shortcomings, Rupert Neve Designs developed the RNHP Precision Headphone Amplifier.

Based on the iconic headphone output circuit found in the 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer, the RND RNHP is a dedicated 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier with the specifically-calibrated +4dBu balanced line, unbalanced RCA and 3.5mm (1/8”) inputs for optimum level and output impedance, housed in a rugged VESA-mountable steel chassis. With effortless, wide-open sonic performance and an overall ability to drive any pair of audio headphones without compromise, the RNHP helps allow you to perform, mix, and enjoy your music with a new level of clarity.

Dedicated vs Integrated Amplifiers

For many pieces of pro audio equipment, the headphone output is an afterthought. Most products that offer integrated headphone amps provide large feature sets, small footprints, and at relatively low price points. This leads to compromised power and audio quality within the headphone amplifier itself, which can cause a number of issues with real world usage such as low headroom, unreliable performance, and even a lack of focus.

The Rupert Neve Designs RNHP Precision Headphone Amplifier was made to accomplish one simple purpose; help make any headphones sound their best. As a dedicated design, the RNHP is tailored to deliver extremely high quality, powerful amplification with precise calibration for any source input. As a result, this exceptional level of quality can inspire a musician to give their best performance, help an engineer make better choices for microphone placement, allow a mix engineer better judgment on EQ and dynamic adjustments, or let any audiophile appreciate the full depth and detail of a recording.

Specially-Calibrated Inputs For All of Your Devices

In addition to being able to control a wide variety of pro audio headphones without sacrificing performance, the Rupert Neve Designs RNHP is also capable of receiving a wide array of audio signals with its three inputs, calibrated for optimum level and impedance.

Here are some common device examples: Input A: +4dBu Line (XLR or TRS) Devices

  • Studio Audio Interfaces (Line or Monitor Out) * Headphone Mixers (Line Output or HP Out)
  • Mixing Consoles (Line, Aux or Monitor Out) * Professional Turntable Mixers (Line or Monitor)
  • Professional Stereo Digital to Analog Converter
  • Professional Cameras * Studio Monitor Controllers

Input B: RCA Devices

  • CD / DVD Players * Stereo Tuners
  • Preamplified Turntables * Prosumer Recording Devices / Cameras

Input C: 3.5mm (1/8”) Stereo Devices

  • Mobile Phones * Portable Music Players
  • Computers * DSLR Cameras
  • Handheld Recording Devices
  • Any 3.5mm headphone output

VESA-Mountable Design

The RNHP is designed for mounting with any VESA 100 compatible mount. These may include pole mounts, wall mounts, table mounts, or articulating arm mounts. These mounts can help to ensure the RNHP is always in the perfect position.

Multiple-Line Feed

In some situations where you only have one set of outputs but need to simultaneously feed the RNHP and another device such as speakers, a second headphone amplifier, or a 2-track recorder, we recommend using splitter cables from the Left and Right line outputs to feed both devices from the same stereo pair.

Built like a tank, excellent form and function. Exactly what it says in the description, the headphone section from the Neve Centerpiece. Not sure what else to say. You can do cheaper, but you can't do much better.

Sounds great and very well built. Pot feel great and the switches are noiseless.

Made a difference

I don't know how I lived without a dedicated headphone amplifier. And nobody does it better than Rupert Neve, certainly not at this price point. Very cool and couldn't be happier with my choice. Now I might have to get another one for the live room.

By Dave P on October 21, 2019

Transparent and a lot of power. Works equally well with 300 ohm Senns and 32 ohm planars.

By Justin S on June 12, 2019

The clarity this provides along with my Adams headphones is incredible!!! I can mix solely on my headphones and know it will sound amazing.

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.

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.
