The Neve AMS DPX dual preamp & EQ has a legacy etched in some of the most famous recordings ever made since the 1970’s. The big, aggressive sound of the 1073 preamp has seen it become a mainstay in studios, and versatile across a number of styles from rock, hip-hop and classical. The 1073DPX matches the specifications of the original 1073, and is still designed and constructed in England. The Neve 1073DPX has 2 x classic Neve 1073 preamps, and 2 x 3-band EQ’s on each channel. Other features include a DI input, inserts, phantom power, level meters and headphone output.
2 independent, genuine Neve 1073 transformer-coupled microphone preamplier / EQ circuits, in a single 2U 19" rack mount enclosure
Exclusive Neve Marinair™ transformers used on each input and output stage.
Convenient connections for Mic, Line & DI inputs on front of unit, with switchable mic/line input connections on the rear of the unit
Switchable +48v Phantom Power, Hi/Lo impedence, -20dB pad and DI ground lift on the input stage
Switchable Phase, and EQ in/out
Insert send and return loop feature allows external equipment to be connected easily to the 1073DPX audio chain, such as mono/stereo limiter/compressors; Pre-EQ insert send/return - a line level send is available from the mic-preamp output stage and a return just before the EQ stage Post-EQ insert send/return - a line level send is available from the post-EQ stage and a return just before the main output stage
Independent channel output level controls
7-stage LED signal level meters for each channel - can show mic/line/DI input-stage level, EQ-stage level or output-stage level up to +24dB
Headphone output with adjustable volume control, can listen to channel 1, channel 2 or both channels combined
External multi-voltage PSU
