The Neve 1073N is a new evolution of the legendary 1073 microphone preamp and EQ Module. The Neve 1073N uses the exact same circuit design and components as the original unit and can be used just like the original, delivering the classic vintage sound associated with the Neve moniker.
This new iteration of the legendary mic preamp, however, benefits from modern techniques first explored with the 500-series modules 1073LB & 1073LBEQ, and can also be used in stand-alone. The Neve 1073N is the exact same size as the original preamp and can be fitted in any 1073 compatible Neve console such as the Neve 80 series or power supply, but this new preamp also features a built-in PSU and can be used on its own.
The 1073N also features a mic, line-in and DI input at the back of the unit as well as a line-level output and is capable of producing 48V phantom power. The Neve 1073N features the exact same Class-A design and features the original’s 3-band EQ with low-pass filtering delivering the same warmth and depth adored by many engineers, producers and musicians throughout the world.
