AMS Neve has unveiled the 1073DPX dual 1073 microphone preamp/EQ unit.
Using the original Neve 1073 circuit design and components and combining them with modern manufacturing techniques, the 1073DPX promises the best sounding microphone preamplifier unit with convenient extra features for an unbeatable price.
The unit's design centres around two independent Neve 1073 transformer-coupled microphone preamplifier/EQ circuits in a single 2U 19in rack mount enclosure, with Neve Marinair transformers used on each input and output stage. It features connections for mic, line & DI inputs on front of the unit, with switchable mic/line input connections on the rear.
Also featured is switchable +48v phantom power with hi/lo impedance, -20dB pad and DI ground lift on the input stage, alongside switchable phase, EQ in/out and independent channel output level controls.
Seven-stage LED signal level meters for each channel display stage level for mic/line/DI input, EQ or output up to +24dB, while the Insert Send and Return features allow external equipment to be connected easily to the 1073DPX audio chain.
The 1073DPX is available now and priced at £2,749/$4,749.
