TRP Mic Preamp Review / EM
"But even with an assortment of expensive solid state preamps at my disposal, I still wasn't satisfied with the sound we were getting. Then along came the TRP. Right away I was amazed at the difference that this preamp made on [Julia Shirar's] vocal tracks. Although I had previously struggled to get this singer to cut through, the TRP positioned her effortlessly in front of the mix with clarity and detail... I thought I had sworn off buying new preamps, but the AEA TRP is clearly a must-have to supplement my mic closet. It is an excellent mid-priced, 2-channel preamp that works wonders without breaking the bank. A staggering 84dB of gain makes the TRP one of the most potent preamps and one of the few optimized for ribbon mics."
TRP Mic Preamp Review / Recording
"In a few words, this preamp makes ribbon microphones sound brighter and more detailed than a conventional transformer-input preamp."
R92 Ribbon Mic Review / Tape Op
"We tried a few different combinations of mics and preamps, and regardless of mic preamp, Justin consistently chose the R92 out of the mics we compared. Our final choice ended up being the R92 into a Pendulum Quartet II."
R92 Ribbon Mic Review / PAR
The AEA R92 is a wonderful microphone ... If anyone ever told me that a ribbon could capture high requencies the way the R92 captures high frequencies, I would have called them a liar ... Its top end is wonderfully pristine. You truly have to hear it to believe it.
R92 Ribbon Mic Review / EQ
"To sum it all up, this microphone exceeded all expectations that I had. The versatility, the design, the excellent wind-blast protection, the reduced proximity bass boost, the clean, the even frequency response, great high end, and very affordable price make this a must have for anyone looking for a real ribbon to add variety to their sound or to replace some finicky vintage mics."
