INTRODUCING THE REALLY NICE PREAMP!The Really Nice Pre-amp, the RNP, is a 1/3 rack two channel mic pre-amp. FMR s objectives for this pre-amp were: Relatively neutral sonics Compatibility with the RNC/RNLA A Really Nice price!WHAT S COOLLots o headroom. These days, the trend is for microphones to increase their output signal levels while reducing their output noise levels. This means either employing a front-end pad and/or increasing the headroom of a mic pre. FMR decided to do the latter: at unity gain, the RNP 8380 has a clip point of +27.5dBu (almost 25Volts peak-to-peak)! Even with a hefty microphone output, the RNP8380 should take what your mics have to give.FidelityWhen designing a pre-amp, there are many ways to balance the sometimes conflicting operating constraints. Unfortunately, with the proliferation of integrated-circuit (IC) based mic pres in recent years, one of the typical casualties has been fidelity. At this point, I won t bore you with the geeky details, but I want to assure you that fidelity was not sacrificed in the RNP8380. Even though there are many mic pres that are quieter, there are very few that have the spurious-free (i.e., distortion-free) spectrum of the RNP8380. Now, more than ever, what you put into a mic pre is what you ll get out.Ugly boxIf you look beyond the RNP8380 s utilitarian ugliness, you ll see that we opted to throw the money saved in cosmetics into the quality of the audio electronics. Given the choice between something that so unds nice versus looks nice, the sound wins out everytime.Really Nice Compressor (RNC) insertsEach channel on the RNP8380 has an unbalanced send/receive jack that allow you to connect an RNC1773 using a single Tip-Ring-Sleeve (TRS) cable (per channel). With proper cabling, you could also use this feature to balance any other unbalanced piece of gear. In addition, with the right external configuration, the RNP can provide a separate +22dBu unbalanced output and a +28dBu balanced output sim

Each company has different design philosophy trade-offs. This company builds things that sound good in the real world (not the best specs available for noise floor), Are Sturdy and functional (rather than a fashionable and artistic box), and are lower cost (Knobs and readings that are sufficient, but not fabulous). If this is the type of equipment you like, you will be happy with this unit.
Otherwise, you'll find different preamps in the same price range or higher, that are suited to your needs.
It's a somewhat dark sounding preamp, but with the plethora of available EQ and exciter VST plugins, that's easy to overcome in a digital home studio.
$500 for a 2-channel preamp with channel inserts is a great deal, and the unit itself is rugged. It comes with a very good manual that gives you the ins and outs of using it effectively.
Besides the fact that I can't have infinitely variable gain, it does its job well
Not fancy, not pretty. A serious workhorse with great sound.
