Neve 1073DPD 2-Channel Microphone Preamp with Digital Outs

2-channel mic/line preamp/ADC with 80 dB gain, Neve Marinair transformers, switchable impedance, 48V Phantom power, and polarity reverse switch

MFR# 1073DPD dual mic preamp (analogue & digital outputs)

Product Description

The Neve 1073DPD combines two world-famous Class A 1073 microphone preamplifiers with flexible 192 kHz digital output capabilities – all in a single rack space. With legendary analog circuitry and superior digital conversion, the 1073DPD is the obvious choice as an ideal front-end recording system for modern digital workstations. The 1073DPD’s parallel analog and digital outputs are independent, allowing for simultaneous analog and digital audio capture. Exclusive Marinair transformers are used on the input and output stage to produce that classic Neve 1073 sound.


The 1073DPD’s superb analog pedigree is complemented with high-headroom Neve-quality A/D conversion outputting high-resolution 24-bit 192 kHz digital via AES or DSD digital protocols. In addition, synchronization points via AES or word clock allow for seamless integration to a host of digital recording mediums.


The DPD features an ADC insert via TRS connection, this gives access to the DPD’s high-quality built-in converters allowing any external analog equipment to benefit from high-resolution A/D conversion. Additionally, this feature allows for the insertion of external analog processors into the DPD’s signal path by feeding the analog output into an outboard compressor, then back into the ADC insert to appear digitally to your audio interface.


The 1073DPD retains the discrete, Class A topology made famous by the classic 1073. The discrete audio path is constructed using through-hole methods, including mounting the Marinair transformers and class-A transistor-based amplifiers.


The classic 5dB stepped Elma switch delivers accurate gain levels throughout the gain range, this unique layout means there is no need for a mic/line switch as the pot itself selects the preamp and input. Three distinct gain stages provided by two independent transistor-based preamplifiers provide gain for any DI, line input or microphone signal.


The 1073 preamp produces up to 80dB of microphone gain. By combining multiple gain stages and utilizing the output trim control, the 1073DPD can be driven hard, bringing out the musical drive and harmonic saturation for which the 1073 is famous.


With settings of 1.2kΩ and 300Ω, the 1073LB impedance can be optimized for use with a wide range of modern or vintage microphones.

Wow, this two channel pre is great! Built in A/D converter, the same FAT sound we all know and love from the 1073. I use this on just about everything and it keeps me smiling every time I use it.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

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.
