BAE 1073MP Single-Channel Mic Preamp with PSU

Single-channel 1073-style microphone preamp with Class A sound, harmonically rich low end, slight resonant highs, and focused mids - includes PSU
MFR# SIN73MPWPS

Product Description

The BAE 1073MP is a rack-mountable preamp and high-pass filter based on the legendary Neve 1073 equalizer. With classic Carnhill transformers a hand-wired Class A design, the BAE 1073MP captures the unmistakable sound of the original Neve 1073. Ideal for tracking engineers who are looking for classic tone at an affordable price, or mixing engineers who want to add depth to their mixes without breaking the bank, the BAE 1073MP delivers vintage tone at a fraction of the price.

UNMISTAKABLE SOUND

The BAE 1073MP uses the exact same circuit as the original Neve 1073—from the Carnhill transformer coupled input to the hand-wired Class-A design. The BAE 1073MP captures the same iconic sound signature and wide bandwidth as the original. Known for its rich low-end, edgy highs and focused midrange, the 1073 has been used on countless hit records.

The BAE 1073MP also introduces new features for added versatility. An all-new line input on the rear can be used to process line-level signals—perfect for fattening up the mix bus! And with a DI input for passive and active instruments on the front, there’s no signal that won’t benefit from the colorful sound of the BAE 1073MP.

RUGGED CONTROLS

The BAE 1073MP features a silky-smooth Elma rotary switch and classic red knob for setting line and mic level gain. Four push-buttons provide added functionality for a wide range of studio applications. The DI button engages the high-impedance instrument input for recording guitars and synths, while the LINE enables the line-level input.

The 48v button provides phantom power for condenser microphones. The phase reversal button inverts the phase of a signal—perfect for recording snare bottom mics! Finally, a toggle switch on the right lets you select 1200 or 300 ohm microphone impedance for capturing pristine sound with any microphone.

Features:

  • All Class A, transformer-coupled design in a 19" 1U chassis
  • Line level XLR inputs for extra versatility as a line preamp
  • High impedance DI for guitar and synth
  • The same Class A components as the 1073 and 1084
  • Illuminated phase reverse and phantom power push-buttons
  • Input impedance selector switch between 1200 and 300 ohms
  • Same modular design and hand-wiring BAE is known for
  • Regulated linear power supply will run up to four channels

This thing has clarity across the frequency spectrum and saturates beautifully in a way that UAD plugins (as great as they are) just can’t compete with. Worth the price of admission.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
