BRINGING TRUE STUDIO-QUALITY AUDIO TO YOUR HOME.
Since the late 1960s, Rupert Neve has been the most trusted name in sound. And chances are, most of your favorite albums from the last fifty years were recorded, mixed or mastered with his legendary studio gear. With the new Fidelice range of playback equipment, the classic sound of Rupert Neve’s designs is now available to bring true studio-quality audio to your home.
Shown for the first time at the 2019 CanJam London Show, Rupert Neve Designs is proud to introduce Fidelice - a new product range for the high-fidelity audio market.
The initial products include The Precision Digital-to-Analog Converter. The Precision Headphone Amplifier and The Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier, providing what has become the reference in world class studios to the audiophile and hi-fi communities. This brings Rupert’s designs full circle, as his first commercial endeavor was actually CQ Audio, a British Hi-Fi company.
We are delighted to be appointed the first UK Audio Specialist to demonstrate and offer the new Fidelice range
The Precision Digital-to-Analog Converter
The Precision Digital-to-Analog Converter is the new range’s flagship product, built around pure Class-A topologies with transformer balanced XLR outputs, and it “represents a new standard in digital accuracy from the master of analog”. In DSD mode, the DAC is capable of operating at the highest available standard of DSD512 (22.4MHz), and in PCM mode the the DAC is capable of reproducing 24-bit, 384 kHz files. According to the company, “Pristine clocking with the top-of-the-line AKM converter chips and highly customized integration make the precision DAC a true reference level product.” The Precision DAC’s rear panel also features digital filter sets to further adapt the sound for any system. The headphone amplifier within the Precision DAC elevates the award-winning RNHP, with an entirely new design featuring the inclusion of XLR balanced and Pentaconn balanced connections in addition to the ¼” unbalanced output. It also includes a high-gain switch making it capable of driving the most difficult-to-power headphones.
The Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier
The Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier is a new design based around the classic amplifier topologies that have made Mr. Rupert Neve’s microphone preamplifiers so sought-after for decades, and is intended to “elevate your turntable setup with the classic sound of Rupert Neve”. Purpose-designed low-noise JFET-based discrete Class-A amplifiers are implemented throughout the signal path for both MM and MC gain stages, “each painstakingly tailored for an enthralling listening experience with unparalleled accuracy, depth and expressiveness.” The Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier includes a switchable 18dB/octave rumble filter, and the MM signal path also includes selectable capacitance of either 110pF or 220pF to pair with a large variety of cartridges.
The Precision Headphone Amplifier
The Precision Headphone Amplifier is an updated version of Rupert Neve Designs’
award-winning RNHP, a 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier, complete with a
new aluminum & mahogany industrial design that makes it at home in any living
room or office. Each of its three sets of inputs is specifically calibrated for optimal
level and impedance, and it offers effortless, wide-open sonic performance and
abundant power to drive any headphones without compromise.
