Launched in 1970, the 1073® Classic soon became the first choice mic preamp for leading producers and artists.
The quality is legendary. Designed and built in England, the modern-day 1073®DPX is produced to the exact specifications of the original with matched components to ensure the sound remains true.
The 1073®DPX has two channels of the 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 1073®DPX introduces extra functionality with integrated DI input, phantom power, selectable Insert feature, level meters, selectable headphone monitoring and front input 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.
An optional Digital I/O module can be fitted into the 1073®DPX and provides AES and FireWire digital connectivity at a range of sample rates. Mastering-grade converters are used and the simple configuration and convenience of digital connectivity make the 1073®DPX the ultimate front-end for capturing the best possible recordings.
