AEA RPQ really necessary for R44?

I just picked up a pair of AEA RPQ's to dedicate to my R88 stereo mic (which usually lives on drum overhead). They sound great, but the best thing is definitely the flexibility with the eq curves and filters. Pretty happy with this setup.

The eq and filters seem really handy. It's on my to-get list.

The RPQ is a twin-channel pre. Wondering why you needed to pick up a pair of them (= 4 channels) to dedicate to a stereo mic? Do you have two R88s?

Should've been more specific -- I meant the lunchbox version of the RPQ (the RPQ500, to be exact).

Thanks for clarifying, that makes sense. I confess I'd momentarily forgotten that there's a 500 series version of the RPQ, hence my puzzlement.

Now that I added the RPQ500's to my lunchbox, they can be dedicated to my R88, which frees up my pair of MA5's for stereo room duties (or anything else). It's a pretty great combo I must say. And the RPQ/R88 combo seems 'made to order'.
