small, but good
Kar1l, 16.04.2018
I recently decided it was time to upgrade from the built in preamps in my Focusrite Sapphire to a 'real' external preamp. My budget was about 600 EUR. Afer a LOT of online research, I narrowed my options down to 6 preamps, in roughly the same price range. The preamps were:


ART Pro MPA II
Warm Audio TB12 Tone Beast
Black Lion Audio B173 Preamp
FMR Audio RNP 8380
Warm Audio WA73
Focusrite ISA One Analog

As I will be using the preamp mostly for vocals and bass, I tested both those signals.
I plugged my Ibanez 600 in passive mode into my BSS DI, into the preamp. For vocals, I hooked up my SM7B straight into the preamp, into Logic X. The results:

The FMR Audio RNP8380 is a dual channel preamp in a super small case (especially compared to the others on this list). It sounded great on vocals, with a lot of smooth, round gain. On bass I felt it lacking, clipping more easily, and sounding dull. Also, it doesn't have a lot of options. But it plays very well with an SM7B.

Beautiful transparent sound

I have owned this 2-channel pre-amp for just over a couple of months, and already have used it on vocals for several recordings. It is transparent, clean and sounds lovely both with a Shure SM7 & a Neumann TLM-103.
There are lots of similar products out there in terms of price and sound quality but I don't think I'll find another pre-amp with better sound and cost per channel.
Like the other FMR products, the 1/3 rack space is really useful for the smaller studio. If anything, clearer output metering would be useful but that is what I use my interface metering for.

FMR RNP 8380
Artur3768, 09.06.2014
As soon as i got an FMR RNP and wanted to test it out. The RNP can do pretty much anything pretty well. Being a guitarplayer, i think the RNP is a better choice for me. Sounded awesome and has a great build quality. I found the RNP 8380 to be an excellent all-purpose preamp, providing unhyped clarity without artificially glossing the high end. It is versatile on primary sources like vocals, guitar, keyboards, synths, piano, drums, bass, etc. It works well with all types of mics, it has phantom power for condensers. It has enough gain for ribbons and dynamics too.
After all and like the name says, it's a Really Nice Preamp.
Love The FMR RNP. It's the best pre I have and it's a huge improvement for me.

Superb quality
Bernobass , 31.08.2019
I have used the compressor from FMR for years and bought this to do some location recording. It’s simply the best for its price and size, works really well on ribbon mics that need lots of gain, silent and quality sounding
