The legendary 1073 wrote the book on characterful mic preamplification. This classic circuit helped define the punchy sound of '70s rock — and countless recordings and live concerts ever since. Warm Audio pays homage to the revered British console lineage that started it all with the new WA73 series Family. Throughout the audio industry, the 1073 is considered the holy grail of preamps, with a rich, sweet, and bold tonality that's ideal for making audacious statements with your music. After years of R&D, painstaking reverse-engineering, and countless hours of listening, Warm Audio have captured the sonic essence of this classic perfectly in the new boutique hand-wired WA73 series. With 80dB of gain and a fully discrete transformer-balanced signal path, the sound is a revelation: harmonically rich bottom end, focused midrange, and slightly resonant highs.
