Mikrofonvorverstärker RFZ KV80/1 Neumann Neve. Zum Verkauf kommen insgesamt 6 Mikrofonvorverstärker 2x RFZ KV80 und 4x RFZ KV80/1 aus einem RFZ MP4084 Mischpult. Das Mischpult ist nicht Bestandteil der Auktion!! Diese Mikrofonvorverstärker können sich mit API messen und schlagen Neumann Mikrofonvorverstärker deutlich! Die besten Ingenieure des Landes haben damals diese Technik entwickelt.
Sie sind aus den 1980ern und damit die Krone der Analogtechnik, bevor das kalte digitale Zeitalter in die Studios einzog. Habe die passenden Steckleisten dazu, was den Bau eines Racks deutlich leichter macht.
Den Schaltplan gibt es auch dazu im PDF Format. Habe sie gereinigt und in meinem Mischpult getestet! 2x KV80 and 4x KV80/1 RFZ mic preamps.
Coming out of a RFZ MP4084 studio console custom built for the GDR (East Germany) broadcasting and recording studios, this RFZ KV80 line/mic preamp with fader was built as the successor to the larger 700 series. RFZ is the east German Siemens/Telefunken! Their value will increase when people will have figured this out.
The KV80 has been compared to the famous Neumann V476b. Both have the same clarity, but the KV80 has a bit more overall presence and warmth and is more on the API side.
The Neumann V476b sounds rather cold and boring in comparison. Several people are using the KV80/1 preamps as line-amps before active-monitors or power-amps with excellent results. It has replaced expensive high-end hifi-preamps!This preamp as a lot of punch! It holds lot of gain for ribbon mics! I have the original edge connectors which helps putting them into a rack. The KV80 line/microphone-preamps have been developed by the R F Z(Central Bureau of Radio and Television, Berlin) in east germany.
This was a broadcast (research) authority of the GDR. The developments were concentrated and one of the highest priority in the GDR. Patent law was not an issue.
The RFZ developed most things by themselves, but also were interested in western-german developements. Adopted them and sometimes even improved them by an even more clever and to the point approach. Due to the production of LP's AMIGA= Pop etc. ETERNA=Classical which was a renommé object of the GDR, the highest claim was to reproduce music as truthful and natural sounding as possible. It was not enough to do all the measurements while developing for example a preamp.
They even had a listening group which consisted of people, with skilled ears, trained by constant visits of classical concerts. The RFZ is famous for their amazing quality mixing desks of the 700-series (V781, V741, V740).
Those preamps are known as absolutely fantastic sounding but they are very rare. Not much of them were made as they have been produced for professional purposes only and were very expensive (the price for a pair of two KV80 preamps was higher than the average monthly income of a GDR citizen from the workin-class at that time). With the 800-series KV800, KV80, FB80 etc. The RFZ fullfilled the need for more compact format consoles while maintaining the audiophile qualities or even exceed them.
