1073 Preamp Mojo, in a Portable Package

From its RAF blue-gray steel chassis and wooden end cheeks to its punchy, in-your-face sound, this single-channel mic/line preamp gives you the vibe and inimitable sonics of the legendary 1073 module from vintage Neve 80 Series consoles. With its 80dB mic pre and 50dB line stage, the TT-73's all-discrete, Class A electronics are designed for historical accuracy - right down to the original's fabled coloration and gain characteristics. High-gain positions show a higher impedance, perfect for older ribbon mics. In addition to being an ideal addition to your studio arsenal, the Heritage Audio TT-73's portable form factor makes it perfect for use on the road.

Platinum sound, right from the get-go

Those of us at Sweetwater who have worked on vintage Neve boards can tell you: if you've got good-sounding, well-miked sources, just push up the faders and you're golden. That's what you get with the Heritage Audio TT-73. 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 TT-73 mic/line preamp.

Take your 1073 mojo on the road

There's no question: the Neve 1073 is the holy grail of preamps. Now Heritage Audio gives you that matchless sound (and those alluring signature looks) in a rugged, diminutive unit that's perfect for life on the road. The TT-73's portability gives you the flexibility you need for multiple-studio work and remote sessions. It even sports a convenient handle. And just so you know, the "TT" stands for Table Top.

What you can do with this amazing preamp

Use it as a stage box, bringing microphones up to line level without using long cable runs. Record studio-quality sound in your hotel room, backstage, or anywhere you have electricity and musical inspiration. The Heritage Audio TT-73 is a must-have!
