From Our Research Team:
The Legendary Neve 1073, Re-born for 500 SeriesHeritage Audio designed the 1073/500 500 Series microphone preamplifier to be the most historically accurate reproduction of the legendary 1073 module for vintage Neve consoles. You get the exact same components, specifications, and construction techniques that made the original a mainstay in recording studios worldwide. The 1073/500 has up to 70dB of gain, selectable input impedance, and one of the sweetest EQs you've ever heard. If you've got a 500 Series chassis and a taste for vintage vibe, consider the Heritage Audio 1073/500 microphone preamplifier a must-have.
Heritage Audio 1073/500 500 Series Microphone Preamplifier at a Glance:
Platinum sound as soon as you hit record
Talk to any engineer that's worked on a vintage Neve console - if you've got the right mics in front of the sources, just bring up the faders and your sound is mostly there. That's what you get with the Heritage Audio 1073/500. Think big, punchy, vibrant sound that seems to leap from your speakers. It's the sound that created countless hit albums, and you've got it on tap with the 1073/500 500 Series preamp/EQ module.
Built to original specs for a true vintage re-creation
In fact, the only technical difference between the Heritage Audio 1073/500 and an original Neve module is the size - to get all the original components in the smaller 500 Series format, Heritage Audio had to make it three slots wide. Inside, you'll find the same transformers, dual-concentric switches, pushbuttons, and even the same PCB cards. So don't think the 1073/500 is another vintage emulation or copycat - it's a true 1073, re-born.
Top-notch performance from both preamplifier and EQ
The 1073/500 packs 70dB of gain in its Class A mic preamp, perfect for ribbon mics and low-output dynamics. The sound is full, punchy, and gets incredibly vibrant when you push your signal levels. And the EQ is amazing too - high- and low-shelving EQs sport the classic Baxandall curves, which give an incredibly natural-sounding roll-off or boost for any material. And the sweepable mid-band EQ has a wide enough range to cover any task, from scooping mud out of your kick drum to beefing up your guitars at 700Hz.

by John Kennedy from NashvilleDidn't buy these from Sweetwater (they just started carrying them), but I've now had this for about six months. I've owned all the 1073 clones (Avedis MA5, Great River, BAE, AMS/Neve, etc...) and this... read more [+] one really sounds like the vintage units that I've used. The upper mids are tame compared to other clones that can tend to be a little "laser beamy" in the 1-4khz range. Beatiful bottom and Neve-like top. EQ is excellent. close [-]
