Neve 1073DPA Microphone Preamp
The Neve 1073DPA provides two world-famous Class A Neve 1073 microphone preamplifiers in a single rack space. The 1073 is widely considered the world’s premier mic preamp, delivering the unique Neve sound featured on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years.
The big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre, from rock to rap, jazz to classical. Its lush sound with classic Neve signature makes it the consummate mic pre for recording vocals, guitars, and acoustic instruments of all descriptions. With the 1073DPA, the highly sought-after 1073 mic amp sound is now available in a cost-effective 1u stereo rack mount solution, without the additional EQ found on the classic 1073 unit.
The 1073DPA provides the legendary sound of Neve in a remarkably simple format. Two rear-panel Mic and Line inputs feed dual Class A gain stages, with adjustable Gain control and selectable 48 V available on the Mic inputs. Class A analogue outputs in XLR format are also found on the rear panel, controlled via adjustable front-panel ±10 dB Trim controls. This stereo unit is the perfect solution for studios looking to bring in the very essence of the Neve 1073 sound.

I had high expectations for what this would do to improve the quality of my signal chain with a variety of microphone types. I immediately found that the 1073 DPA surpassed my expectations and this will likely be my first pick of pre-amp I use going forward. Though the sound is most important, I will also add that the build quality of this unit is a real standout. The look and feel of this piece is the best I have ever seen in a rack mounted unit.
