RM Series in general
TUBE-TECH RM Series
The RM series is the TUBE-TECH solution for the modern studio setup.
The RM series is a great solution for a compact, very high quality system for the modern studio or recording truck where space is an issue, but very high sound quality is imperative.
All TUBE-TECH RM modules are built to the exact same, very high standards and with same components as our 19" units. Absolutely no corners have been cut in the design of the RM Series, and one thing only has been scaled down: The physical size! The RM Series features three modules: The PM 1A Microphone Preamplifier/DI, the EM 1A Program Equalizer and the CM 1A Opto Tube Compressor. To accommodate the modules, there’s a choice of two racks: The RM 8 (8 modules) and the RM 2 (2 modules).
When looking at modular processors, there is always a danger that quality has suffered due to the limited size and price considerations. This is NOT the case with the TUBE-TECH RM series. As an example, the RM series differs from the 500 systems in that the PSU directly provides all the high voltages needed to operate tubes properly and no noise is introduced by the compact construction.
TUBE-TECH''s solution is expensive, but if you want tube designs to sound right, it''s necessary to deliver more power for the tube modules, than the 500 rack is capable of. It''s furthermore necessary to use the quality of the 19" rack units directly in the modular gear. Especially the transformers can not be down scaled versions.We have cut absolutely no corners in designing the RM Series!
