Fifty years in the making.

The Shelford Channel is the definitive evolution of the original technologies in Rupert’s classic console modules like the 1073, 1064, 1081 & 2254, thoughtfully advanced and refined for the 21st century studio.

The Shelford Channel is channel strip of the first order. It begins with Rupert Neve’s first new transformer-gain, class-A microphone preamplifier in over 40 years and continues with the “best-of-the-classics” inductor EQ section from the Shelford 5052. It features a tone-packed Diode bridge compressor, the analog power of variable Silk saturation and a new dual-tap transformer output stage for either maintaining headroom or allowing the full driving of the Channel without clipping standard converters.

  • Directly coupled transformer input with gain provided by the custom transformer itself—a first in over 40 years for Rupert Neve
  • Dual Tap Transformer Output with Variable Silk
  • Direct Input on front panel uses the same discrete class-A FET with transformer topology as the RNDI
  • Best Of The Classics 3-Band EQ section
  • Diode Bridge Compressor is based on the same topologies found in Rupert’s vintage designs
  • Double voltage power via +/- 24V rails versus vintage designs
