i actually like the silver knobs in the pic a lot. they look all heavy and nice - like they provide a really sloooow, nice turn.

Sizes haven't changed, they are just a lot nicer.

Full technical detail etc to follow very shortly. We're working on it, and still anticipate shipping in April.

Ah, yes, I forgot about this part of it. And Tristan was also going on about how great the converters were. I told you I had a bad memory.

Same old questions .

Are you by any chance in the minority of RND haters?

simple question

It's a legitimate question unless you're a person that will purchase items on trend or brand name like many on this marketing site. The question comes up because there's a new team at RND.....

Hey Josh,

Love the Portico 5012. Sounds better than any of the vintage Neve clones


Please tell me, is Fidel a better sounding mic amp than Porti or just Porti with a few extra features?

I can't imagine it could happen since Porti is so nice.

I wear fuzzy slippers and toe mittens when I operate my Porti. Feels so nice.

Tristan and Craig Hutchinson indicated that the transformer was much larger than the Portico and quite different. Between that and the four Silk functions, it really does sound like it's going to be noticeably different from the Portico. Whether we all think that it's better sounding remains to be seen, of course, but it doesn't sound like it's going to be the same. This thing is really giving me GAS. This and the Nord Electro 3 were the most exciting things for me at NAMM. I can't afford either, so they're gonna hafta wait for a while!!!

Wow, I didn't realize how close the name of this pre and the last President of Cuba were until now.
Anyways, just in case, if I were you I wouldn't call it Fidel again. You don't know how's watching us now...

My mother lives down in Texas. Next time I am there visiting I think I'd like to scoot on over to RND and reach out my hand to the main man - I'd like to give Rupert a hand shake and say "you're a swell fella" for a job well done.

I tell you people, when I get on my fuzzy pajamas and my toe mittens and turn Porti's little-big red knob, I swear that God is rubbing my tummy.

It's exciting to think about the possibility that Porti has a big brother.

Viva Fidel !

Seriously, sometimes I think about people like that. Guys like Mr. Neve helped to shape two generations of music making. I mean, just look at this forum! This should be the 1073/U47 Slutz.

By the look on Rupert's face, Eleven asked for a free Fidelis.. Either that, or he just got done reading that awful thread on Neve vs Neve clones that Jules just closed.

So you're saying he's not all that? heh

Well, let's not cross that line. Is enough controversy to talk about Neve in this forum. Imagine mixing it with politics!!!


I'm going to come forward in this thread. The 1073 DPA (and other clones) have been in my wish list for too long. And I'm tired of letting great gear pass the first introduction price because is too new just to watch them get out of my budget. I want to know if there is going to be a "friendlier" price for the first buyers.
There, I said it!

Nice,


But gonna have to wait for the 2 channel with no conversion. I honestly have no need for a 4 channel. Red, Blue, White, Mr. Neve's favorite colors. How about some

" British Racing Green " on the 2 channel with white knobs like a distressor? heh and lastly with an impedance switch?

We already have the 5012. How much better could the sound actually get with this new mic amp?

Does this new mic amp have a wall wart?

How about if you're a person who actually purchases something based on the way it sounds?

The photo with me and Mr. Neve was taken at AES in 2006, so it must have been something else that was funny at the time!!!

I don't post here super often, so I actually didn't know that anything Neve was that controversial. Or trendy.

I have a couple of portico units: the stereo preamp and the stereo compressor.

RE: the preamp - I thought they used "TLAs" in the design (transformer like amplifiers) and that it is a transformerless design.

I would think a major difference between the blue four channel pre and the previous designs would be the INCLUSION of trannies....

correct information? (as we so rarely get around here).

FWIW:

use equipment to record. No one has ever been struck by the ironic beauty of a mic preamp. an instrumental solo or excellent lyric - well....

OK thanks...

All of the Porticos have Rupert's custom designed input and output transformers.
