Finding a vintage digital AMS rack unit in top operating condition is becoming ever-harder; ‘cheap’ examples can be found online, but they can require a great deal of tech time, and sometimes fixes are simply not possible. When released, these were the cutting edge of digital technology; AMS designed and built these with great care and attention to detail and they swiftly became ubiquitous in studios worldwide. The RMX-16 can be heard on thousands of recordings from the 80s to now, and was certainly one of the core studio staples that defined the musical soundscape of the 80s. Today RMX-16s can still be found in regular use in top studios worldwide and their sound is still so coveted that Universal Audio have now collaborated with AMS to produce the UAD plug-in version.
Currently set to 240v operation.

Please Note: It is very important all vintage AMS RMX & DMX series rackmounts are powered for at least an hour at least every 6 months or risk of NVRAM battery leakage is greatly increased. It is highly recommended the battery is replaced every 5 years as routine maintenance on these units to avoid severe damage to the processor card.
