The Neve 1073LB Pre is the latest incarnation of Rupert Neve’s legendary 1073 preamp and is designed to fit into 500 Series chassis.
40 years after Rupert Neve's original design, the Neve 1073LB Pre exhibits all the same sonic characteristics that have made this preamp so popular throughout the world. From using the same Class-A design and architecture as its predecessor to matching every component and hand-wound transformers, AMS Neve has gone to great length to ensure the latest iteration of the 1073 family delivers the same big and punchy sound with silky-smooth top end engineers and producers expect.
Updated for the 21st century the Neve 1073LB Pre features new additions such as an output Trim control, a switchable microphone input impedance and Neve's unique Audio Processing Input allowing the processing of adjacent Neve modules within the same 500 Series chassis.
Now in a small, portable and flexible 500 Series format, the Neve 1073LB Pre brings you the sound of Neve at a fraction of the price.
