With abundant power and versatile connections, the R10 delivers peace of mind for engineers who demand a higher degree of confidence in their 500 series racks.
Power-wise, the R10 has more than 150% the required current for a 10-space chassis to prevent the power rails from failing under a higher-than-expected load. To help monitor and troubleshoot problematic modules, the R10 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 R10 helps your modules realize their fullest potential.
The chassis is comprised of solid steel with sliding nuts to accommodate various manufacturers modules. All connectors and fittings are of the highest quality to ensure that the R10 will hold up to many years of use.
Because the R10 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 R10 has variable-position screw holes to help make the installation process as smooth as possible. The 500 series VCA buss link function can be enabled in pairs on the R6 using the link jumpers on Channels 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 or 9-10. Enabling link allows compatible compressor modules like the 543 to share VCA control when their links are enabled. Matching blank panels are also available to cover any empty slots.
If you want to get the very best performance out of your 500 series modules, the Rupert Neve Designs R10 is the serious rack for the serious sound you want.
To fill gaps in the R10, the 510: Blank Panel can be used to create a more seamless look.
