OUR PART # RND-5045
The Rupert Neve Designs 5045 Primary Source Enhancer is an amazing box that will assist mixing engineers where unwanted background sounds bleed into mics. Imagine inserting the 5045 over a podium mic, making a few adjustments to the very easy-to-use knobs on the front panel, and realizing how the intelligibility of that mic increases. Under the right conditions, more than 20dB of additional gain before feedback can be achieved. By simply reducing the background sounds relative to the main audio source, the additional clarity is quite stunning. In addition to that, the rich warmth that Mr. Neve's devices are known for is also present with the 5045.
Ideal for corporate A/V, panel discussions, houses of worship, broadcast and a variety of other venues and events, the Portico 5045 Primary Source Enhancer especially shines when used in a challenging environment such as with a lavalier or headset microphone.
The 5045' front panel features a Time Constant, Threshold and Depth knob for each of the 2 channels, as well as push button controls for Process Engage and RMS/Peak. Even when the channels are not engaged, the 5045 consists of two immaculate transformer coupled Line Amplifiers. Connections are simple for the balanced line ins and outs for each channel. The rear panel has 2 XLR input and 2 XLR outputs. Because of the transformers, the 5045 will accept any combination of either balanced or unabalanced inputs and outputs.
