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® SPX is produced to the exact specifications of the original with matched components to ensure the sound remains true.
The 1073® SPX has a 1073® Class A design microphone preamplifier, with 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and high pass filter, which 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 genuine Neve sound.
Building on the 1073® classic module features, the 1073® SPX introduces extra functionality with integrated DI input, phantom power, selectable Insert feature, level meters, output level control and front input connectors for easy and direct connection of microphones and instruments. The 19” rack-mount 1U unit includes an external multi-voltage PSU
