Neve 1073OPX 8-Channel Microphone/Line Preamp
Launched in 1970, the Neve 1073 quickly became the mic pre of choice for leading producers and engineers and has since become the world’s most desirable preamplifier. Designed and manufactured in England by AMS Neve to this day, its unique tonal quality, warmth, low-mid punch and subtle harmonic distortion gives studios of all sizes the most prestigious front-end for their recordings. Packing eight 1073 remote-controllable preamplifiers in a 2U rackmount case, the Neve 1073OPX suits modern DAW-based workflows, where any space is a premium, whilst also offering the 1073 channel mic preamp sound everyone knows and loves. The 1073OPX is the Swiss Army knife of modern studios.
Every switch setting gain position and routing option is remotely controlled from the 1073OPX app. This amazing feature unlocks unlimited potential for many modern studios, broadcast suites and live sound venues. In addition, up to eight OPX units can be controlled remotely from the OPX app for a total of 64 remote-controlled 1073 instrument preamplifiers! The AMS Neve 1073 OPX continues the 1073 pedigree, packing eight legendary preamps into a 2U rack unit, as a standalone or with the Dante Card Bundle. Front and rear connectors give comprehensive connectivity to any Studio/Live/Broadcast environment and modern remote-control software gives two-way control with Total Recall of all settings. Input sources benefit from the transformer-coupled input stage and can be connected directly to the front-mounted Mic/Line/DI input for recording in the studio control-room. It can be used independently or with our Dante Bundle.
The 1073OPX analogue and digital monitor paths are perfect for connecting to studio loudspeakers or audio interface with any front-mounted headphone monitoring connections. Each preamp output can be routed to the monitor path for analogue summing or latency-free monitoring. The Neve 1073OPX has both front and rear input connections with easy-to-use independent switching. This layout allows for seamless integration into front panel studio racks or audio converters with a simple direct link to the front of the 1073 unit at any time without having to re-patch.

This preamp is a game changer in my studio. It's a got a beautiful warm feel to it that is great to have for podcasting, drums, vocals, guitars, piano, you name it. I love the front end line/mic hook ups for when I'm just sitting in the control room running my own tracks. The single increment increase in gain is awesome. If you don't have one of these yet, jump on the train, drink the kool aid and buy the t shirt.
Amazing workhorse for many applications. Plenty of presence and punch. Great on toms and bass!
This thing is a game changer. The gain and flexibility of the unit allows me to track vocals from a SM7B without a Cloud Lifter or other device. It got acres of Neve gain on any source. Tracking drums though this is amazing as well. You get the transformer weight that you expect with vintage Neve gear in a compact and affordable box. My question now is, is one enough? Amazing.
