The 1073SPX has a Neve 1073 Class-A microphone preamplifier with 3-band EQ (fixed HF plus two switchable bands with cut/boost capability), and high pass filter
Building on the 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 (to be announced early 2018) 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.
