Neve 1073SPX Mono Mic Pre-Amp & EQ
Since 1970, the Neve 1073 has been one of the most acclaimed preamps and EQs in the recording industry. The legendary sound has been the secret ingredient to some of the top recordings over the last 40 years, all due to its big and punchy sound that compliments any genre of music - from rap to rock to classical. Designed and built in England, the Neve 1073SPX offers the same sonic qualities as the classic Neve 1073, and is produced with the exact same specifications and matched components.
The 1073SPX features a Neve 1073 class A design microphone preamp and the classic three-band EQ, which includes a fixed high-frequency shelf, two selectable bands with boost and cut capabilities, as well as a high pass filter.
The 1073SPX now has expanded features to better fit with today’s recording industry standards. The front panel now includes an integrated DI input, insert that offers true bypass, input and output level meters, and an additional input connector that accepts microphone or line level for easy and direct connection.
The 19” rack-mount 1U unit includes an external multi-voltage PSU and an optional Digital I/O module is available.
