TRP Mic Preamp Review / PAR
"[The TRP] is destined to become a first choice preamp for engineers who use ribbon mics with quiet sources...In other words, it's the first universal mic preamp for non-phantom powered mics! ... Since the Millennia Media preamp is such a standard around the world for classical recording, I'd consider that putting the TRP in the same category as the HV3C is giving it some pretty high-class company to keep."
TRP Mic Preamp Field Test / Mix
"Several shoot-outs and tests against other preamps went about as expected: None had the flexibility for reliable, stable settings, nor had the kind of overall gain structure or repeatable results found in the TRP ... With such a smart blend of technology, it's difficult to tell where the beauty of the ribbon microphone experience ended and the preamp began, but the unit's lack of coloration and built-in features more than kept up with—and perhaps exceeded—the quality of the microphones I used."

"The AEA TRP is an impressive preamp whichever way you look at it."
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."

"In a few words, this preamp makes ribbon microphones sound brighter and more detailed than a conventional transformer-input preamp."
