The 1073®DPD combines two of our world-famous Class A 1073®microphone preamplifiers with flexible 192kHz digital output capabilities, for modern recording environments – all in a single rackspace.
For those who don’t already know its legacy, the big, punchy sound of the 1073® preamp complements any musical genre, from rock to pop, hip-hop to rap, thrash to classical. Its lush sound with classic Neve® signature makes it the consummate mic pre for recording vocals, guitars, and all acoustic instruments.
With the 1073®DPD, two 1073® mic preamplifiers are complemented by superb Neve®-designed analogue-to-digital converters that can capture a performance in any required format. In addition to Neve’s famous Class A analogue outputs are a series of digital options, including all standard PCM sampling rates up to 192kHz, selectable via convenient front-panel controls. A unique feature is the Neve® DSD (Direct Stream Digital) output, providing unsurpassed quality beyond PCM technology.
Despite its power, the 1073®DPD is remarkably simple to operate. Two rear-panel Mic inputs and Line inputs feed dual Class A gain stages, with adjustable Gain control and selectable 48V available on the Mic inputs. Class A analogue outputs in XLR format are also found on the rear panel, controlled via adjustable front-panel ±10dB Trim controls. Analogue insert points are provided ahead of the A/D converters, ensure the classic Neve® sound is retained.
The combination of legendary analogue circuitry and superior digital quality makes the 1073®DPD the obvious choice as a front-end for recording to digital workstations.
