Launched in 1970, the 1073® Classic soon became the first choice mic preamp for leading producers and artists.
Designed and built in England, the modern-day 1073® N is produced to the exact specifications of the original, matching components to ensure the sound remains true. The Class A design 1073® N microphone preamplifier has 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and a high pass filter. The 1073® N mic pre and EQ combination adds warmth and depth to recordings, brings out subtle ambience, maintains spatial positioning, and captures a more precise image – embodying, think many engineers and producers, the essence of the Neve® sound.
Building on the 1073® classic module features, the 1073® N introduces extra functionality with an integrated DI input, I/O connectors for direct connection of microphones and instruments and other equipment, phantom power for powered microphones and a PSU for standalone use. It can also be fitted into compatible racks/housings or retrofit into 80 Series Neve® classic consoles. Neve – no question.
