The Neve 1073 DPD is the latest generation of Neve Class A transformer balanced mic preamps. Based on the vintage 1073, it incorporates its classic sound and features with modern upgrades that maintain Neve's long standing heritage and reputation in sound quality.
The 1073 DPD is a dual Mic/Line amplifier with an ADC converter. The unit includes Hi and Lo impedance switches for ribbon microphones and inserts at the rear allowing engineers to add an existing compressor or an EQ to the signal path before the ADC. Levels can be set using the classic gain control in 5dB steps then finely tune with the Trim controls. The unit has both XLR and TRS inputs for additional flexibility.
The ADC supports all standard PCM sampling rates up to 192kHz and include the unique Neve DSD output. The ultimate analogue circuitry is coupled with superior digital quality making this unit the obvious choice as a front end for recording to workstations.
