1073 SPX Preamp & EQ
Single Preamp and EQ with extra features
Found on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years, the big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre – from rock to rap to classical.
Launched in 1970, the Neve 1073® Classic soon became the first choice mic preamp for leading producers and artists.
The quality is legendary. Designed and built in England, the modern-day 1073SPX is produced to the exact specifications of the original with matched components to ensure the sound remains true.
The 1073SPX has a Neve 1073® Class A design microphone preamplifier, with 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability) and high pass filter, which adds warmth and depth to recordings, brings out subtle ambience, maintains spatial positioning, and captures a more precise image – embodying, think many engineers and producers, the essence of the genuine Neve sound.
Building on the Neve 1073® classic module features, the 1073SPX introduces extra functionality with integrated DI input, phantom power, selectable Insert feature, level meters, output level control and front input connectors for easy and direct connection of microphones and instruments. The 19” rack-mount 1U unit includes an external multi-voltage PSU
An optional Digital I/O module can be fitted into the 1073SPX and provides digital connectivity at a range of sample rates. Mastering-grade converters are used and the simple configuration and convenience of digital connectivity make the 1073SPX the ultimate front-end for capturing the best possible recordings
