The TRP3 from AEA achieves unprecedented sound clarity with a combination of updated, modernized circuits and a tonal warmth embedded in every design.

The TPR3 may be a half rack, but it packs powerful punch that provides unmatched levels of clean gain and open, natural sound. The TRP3 offers all the classic features of its predecessor with more straightforward control markings and a responsive high-pass filter that reproduce even the smallest details of microphones and other sound sources.

Equally well-equipped for ribbon, condenser and dynamic microphones, the dual-channel TRP3 delivers all the gain power with a compact half-rack package.
