“AEA’s RPQ2 gives me the high gain, high impedance tool that I need to open up the sound of my favorite ribbon mic’s with the added bonus of low noise and easy tonal control. Whether recording large string sections for television or intimate vocals for a record, my ribbon mic’s have never sounded better!”

-James Saéz

Los Angeles based producer, engineer, writer, and multi-instrumentalist James Sáez has worked on hundreds of recordings during his 25 years in the music industry with engineering and composition credits in pop and rock engineering as well as numerous films and TV shows.
