Rupert Neve Designs has announced the new 545 primary source enhancer, a 500 Series version of its Portico 5045 analog feedback eliminator.
The 545 is a mono device for vocal or instrumental feedback reduction applications. According to the company, it “delivers the world’s most natural feedback reduction and adds focus to your primary sources” by effectively increasing the level of a live microphone signal before feedback occurs by up to 20 dB.
“Unlike more traditional devices in this market, the 545’s all-analog signal path does not utilize filtering or digital processing to achieve its benefits, and is also built around Rupert Neve Designs’ custom input and output transformers. This allows the 545 to provide superb control and sonic performance without compromising the integrity of the source material.”
The 545 begins shipping this month (June 2018) with an MSRP of $749 USD.
