What is it?A mic preamp and equaliser built to the exact specifications of the original 1073 modules first produced in 1970. DetailsFully hand-wired, the 1073 microphone preamplifier features 3-band EQ, with one fixed high-frequency band, two switchable bands (with cut and boost capability) plus a high-pass filter. All Neve channel amplifiers are designed to accept signals from a wide range of microphone and line sources. Both inputs of the Class-A design are transformer balanced and earth free, with microphone gain adjustable from +80db to +20dB in 5dB steps and line gain from +20dB to -10dB, also in 5dB steps. Frequency response is quoted at 20Hz to 20kHz (±0.5dB) and distortion at 0.07% (max) from 50Hz to 10kHz (at +20dBu output). The 1073 includes an EQ-out socket, signal presence LED and a +5/-10dB level trim control with integrated phantom power on/off switch. 1073 modules can be purchased singly or multiples and though designed to be retrofitted into the 80 Series Neve Classic consoles as part of a channel strip, they can be mounted in a 3U or 5U custom rack unit accommodating two modules and eight modules respectively.
