1073N

The 1073® with a Modern Twist

Designed and built in England, the modern-day 1073N is the perfect choice for producers looking to access classic Neve® sound in a true-to-form 80-series module.

Classic 80-Series

The 1073N was constructed as a true-to-form 80-series module. This exacting specification means that the 1073N can replace vintage modules housed in the legendary 1970’s Neve® consoles using the gold-plated 18 pin rear connector.

Horizontal or Vertical Configurations

There’s no need to worry for those who are not lucky enough to own a classic Neve® console, as the 1073N comes in two configurations depending on your requirements. Horizontal modules can be racked together as a stereo pair in the Neve 3U stereo rack. Additionally, eight vertical modules can be housed in the 5U vertical rack.

Standalone Use

A great benefit of the 1073N is using the unit standalone without a console or rack. The 1073N has independent, external PSU, XLR connections and metal casing, meaning this classic preamp can be placed anywhere in the studio or taken on the road. Ultimate quality, any time, anywhere.

Instrument DI

The 1073N is the ideal modern standalone 1073®, featuring an independent DI circuit and connection with earth lift and -20dB pad for recording any instrument directly into the 1073N.

Marinair® Transformers

Exclusive Marinair® transformers are used on the microphone input, line input, and output stage to produce that classic Neve 1073® sound throughout.

Class A Discrete

The 1073N retains the discrete, class-A topology made famous by the classic 1073®. Taking this technology forward, the 1073N uses a combination of modern production techniques, including our unique, in-house SMT. Still, crucially, the discrete audio path is constructed using through-hole methods, including mounting of the Marinair® transformers and class-A transistor-based amplifiers.

Inductor-Based EQ

Like the original 1073®, the 1073N uses the original, custom hand-wound inductors manufactured exclusively in the Uk. The 3-band inductor based EQ produces musical results across the frequency spectrum, the mid bell-curve band features ideal presence ranges for male and female vocals with +/-18dB of gain, with high and low shelving bands with +/-16dB gain.

Unique 1073® Gain Staging

The classic 5dB stepped Elma switch delivers accurate gain levels throughout the gain range. This unique layout means there is no need for a mic/line switch; the pot itself selects the preamp and input. Three distinct gain stages are provided by two independent transistor-based preamplifiers producing high gain for any DI, line input or microphone signal.

High Output - Harmonic Saturation

By combining the two preamps together, the 1073® preamp can deliver up to 80dB of microphone gain, bringing out the musical drive and harmonic saturation that the 1073 is famous for.

Phase Invert

The 180-degree phase flip feature is extremely useful in multi-microphone setups with multiple preamps, ideal for top and bottom snare micing.

Lo-Z Impedance

With settings of 1.2kΩ and 300Ω, the 1073LB impedance can be optimised for use with a wide range of modern or vintage microphones.
