The BAE 1073D 500 series version is the most authentic, true Neve 1073 in 500 Series format. Direct instrument input and 3 band EQ, this unit will be one of your first call.
The 1073D (Deluxe) is essentially a 1073 module with extra high frequencies and a direct input for the 500 series market. Built using the same exact parts as the 10 series module, the 1073D features Carnhill transformers, Elma gold plated switches and Canford wire making this the best sounding Class A micpre EQ module on the block.
Because BAE did not want to compromise, the parts are such that they made this a 3 space wide module for optimal quality in contrast to building a smaller rack space version lacking the same premium components.
