Classic Dual Preamp & EQ

 

Launched in 1970, the Neve 1073 Classic soon became the first choice mic preamp for leading producers and artists. Found on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years, the big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre – from rock to rap to classical.  The quality is legendary.  Designed and built in England, the modern-day 1073DPX is produced to the exact specifications of the original with matched components to ensure the sound remains true.

The 1073DPX has two channels of Neve 1073 Class A design microphone preamplifiers, each with 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and high pass filter, adding warmth and depth to recordings, bringing out subtle ambience, maintaining spatial positioning, and capturing a more precise image – embodying, think many engineers and producers, the essence of the genuine Neve sound.

Building on the 1073 classic module features, the 1073DPX introduces extra functionality with integrated DI input, phantom power, selectable Insert feature, level meters, selectable headphone monitoring and I/O connectors on each channel for easy and direct connection of microphones and instruments.

The 19” rack-mount 2U unit includes an external multi-voltage PSU

 

Features

​2 independent, genuine Neve 1073 transformer-coupled microphone preamplier / EQ circuits, in a single 2U 19" rack mount enclosure

Exclusive Neve Marinair™ transformers used on each input and output stage.

Convenient connections for Mic, Line & DI inputs on front of unit, with switchable mic/line input connections on the rear of the unit

Switchable +48v Phantom Power, Hi/Lo impedence, -20dB pad and DI ground lift on the input stage

Switchable Phase, and EQ in/out

Insert send and return loop feature allows external equipment to be connected easily to the 1073DPX audio chain, such as mono/stereo limiter/compressors;

Pre-EQ insert send/return - a line level send is available from the mic-preamp output stage and a return just before the EQ stage

Post-EQ insert send/return - a line level send is available from the post-EQ stage and a return just before the main output stage

Independent channel output level controls

7-stage LED signal level meters for each channel - can show mic/line/DI input-stage level, EQ-stage level or output-stage level up to +24dB

Headphone output with adjustable volume control, can listen to channel 1, channel 2 or both channels combined

External multi-voltage PSU
