The various sections of this preamplifier include microphone preamps, playback amps, record preamplifier and record oscillator cathode follower output.
Over the years they produced 2 different versions. The most common version included front panel bass and treble controls with bias adjustment.
The second one was the broadcast version with rear adjust bias adjustments, Mic & balanced line inputs, front panel headphone jack but no bass or treble controls.
The inputs of the RP 3 are quarter-inch headphone jacks which many users convert to RCA’s for modern use.
