Legend Meets Future
Eight Legendary 1073® remote-controlled Preamps with Marinair® Transformers, USB and Dante digital connectivity taking the Classic Neve preamp sound into the future.
Launched in 1970, the 1073® soon became the mic preamp of choice for leading producers and engineers and has since become the world’s most desirable preamplifier. Designed and manufactured in England by AMS Neve to this day, it’s unique tonal quality, warmth, low-mid punch and subtle harmonic distortion gives studios of all sizes the most prestigious front-end for their recordings.
The 1073OPX continues the 1073® pedigree, packing eight legendary preamps into a 2U rack unit. Front and rear connectors give comprehensive connectivity to any Studio/Live/Broadcast environment and modern remote-control software gives two-way control with Total Recall™ of all settings with Save/load feature. Mic input sources benefit from the Marinair(R) transformer-coupled input stage and sources can be connected directly to the front-mounted Mic/Line/DI input for recording in the studio control-room.
The 1073OPX’s analogue and digital monitor signal path allows use as a complete standalone I/O interface or as a live room remote preamp with a full, latency-free monitoring cue mix signal path. The optional digital I/O card comes with Neve’s industry-revered mastering-grade converters with up to 192kHz/24-Bit A/D conversion over USB connection for use as a Primary Audio Interface to any connected DAW-enabled computer as well as Primary and Secondary Dante® connectivity for Audio-over-IP applications.
When Legend meets future. The 1073OPX Optional Digital card provides a USB and Dante AD/DA interface with eight channels of analogue to digital conversion for each 1073OPX preamp output and two channels of Digital to Analogue conversion for the digital monitor return signal path. The USB connection allows the 1073OPX to be connected to a DAW enabled PC/MAC computer to be used as a Primary/Core audio interface. In addition to the USB connection, Primary and Secondary Dante connections allow for the 1073OPX to be connected to any Dante Audio-Over-Ip network as a Dante enabled preamp. The Digital card can be retrofitted easily to any existing 1073OPX unit.
The digital option will be shipped within the unit unless otherwise stated.
