With the 1073DPD, two Neve 1073® mic preamplifiers are complemented by superb Neve-designed analogue-to-digital converters that can capture a performance in any required format. In addition to Neve’s famous Class A analogue outputs are a series of digital options, including all standard PCM sampling rates up to 192kHz, selectable via convenient front-panel controls. A unique feature is the Neve DSD (Direct Stream Digital) output, providing unsurpassed quality beyond PCM technology.
Despite its power, the 1073DPD is remarkably simple to operate. Two rear-panel Mic inputs and Line inputs feed dual Class A gain stages, with adjustable Gain control and selectable 48V available on the Mic inputs. Class A analogue outputs in XLR format are also found on the rear panel, controlled via adjustable front-panel ±10dB Trim controls. Analogue insert points are provided ahead of the A/D converters, ensure the classic Neve sound is retained.
The combination of legendary analogue circuitry and superior digital quality makes the 1073DPD the obvious choice as a front-end for recording to digital workstations.
