Introducing the RSE TPC-IC - the newest addition to our line of audio recording equipment. Our goal has always been to make high-quality gear accessible to everyone, and with the TPC-IC, we've achieved just that. This device is designed to compete with our lamp devices but at a fraction of the cost.

While the TPC-IC may not have vacuum tubes in its design, we've made sure that it doesn't compromise sound quality or compression. The circuit features the same compressor and signal detector assembly as our older models, so you can trust it to handle the same types of signals. Plus, we've kept the input and output transformers to saturate the signal with harmonics and give it a livelier feel.

We've used high-quality operational amplifiers to achieve low noise levels, making the TPC-IC delicate when working with even the most insensitive microphones. The device boasts 74dB sensitivity, but if your microphone doesn't need that much boost, simply activate the pad on the back of the unit to remove 24dB.

We're confident that the RSE TPC-IC will be an indispensable addition to your set of studio equipment for recording and processing music. Don't let its lower price tag fool you - this device is a powerhouse that delivers exceptional sound quality.
