At 54.51$  that would be a neat little preamp.....I wonder how low noise it is?

This only runs on VAC.....not DC.

From their spec sheet:

SPECIFICATIONS 2MP & 8MP Preamplifiers:
Power requirement:     15-18VAC 7-20VA (2MP) 15-20VA (8MP), 50-60Hz
                                     External 230VAC transformer included (120VAC on special request)

I assumed the 7-20VA was what the transformer was providing. So what does VA stand for  ???  If it is AC fed through a mini plug, then I doubt it passes FCC regs for the US.

I've been shopping the inexpensive USB bus powered 2 channels like..

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2


Presonus Audiobox USB


M-Audio FastTrack Pro 4x4


Pretty sure after wading through a lot of reading that I will be spending my hard earned cash on the Focusrite. The M-Audio is more versatile but from what I understand doesn't perform too well as a preamp.

Has anyone tried either of these, Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 or Presonus Audiobox USB?  Hell for the money I might just have to check one out!

I'll be purchasing the 2i2 in a few days. Tho I'm no expert on how things stack against each other I'll do my best to compare against the UA-5 I'm borrowing.

I think the reason the RNP hasn't caught on for portable use is power consumption; its rear panel asks for a supply capable of >13W, and its manual states the unit uses six times the power of a typical class A circuit and that its case gets warm under use.  Figure one of the usual inamp ICs uses 6 to 10mA per channel, so maybe the RNP is using 60mA * 2 channels * 30V = 3.6W plus phantom and any other overhead (LEDs, etc).  Class A capable of driving 600 ohm will do that do you; the IC inamps all have class AB outputs.

Maybe worth a try if you are already committed to reasonable sized external battery solutions.

FWIW I can run the RNP, phantom on, with an external Li-On for 4hrs.  Not great, but not bad.  It's a pretty small package for a gear bag.

I emailed www.lake-people.de to ask for pricing on their 2 channel preamp, and they responded saying the  MIC-AMP C360 is 500 euro, excluding any VAT.
