The new "500" series of Vintech Microphone Preamplifiers, presents a modern take on the classic Neve 1073 module, and in this video we are focusing on the Vintech 573 Model used in our "OAK" sessions. SoundPure's own Pro Audio Expert Doug Wessling details the functions, and utility of these stellar preamp's, with special attention to how we used them to track a full drum kit during our session. A transformer balanced microphone preamp, the Vintech 573 provides all discrete high impedance D.I., that passes through the input transformer. If you are interested in the individual drum track, or any other Hi-Res audio files featured in this or any of our other videos, please email preamps@soundpure.com for any questions about the recording chain or anything else you would like to know. You can also call us here at SoundPure, and speak to any of our experts to see how we can provide the perfect combination for whatever setup you are working with. 919-682.5552. or 888.528.9703.

A blind shootout video between a Rupert Neve Vintage 1073 mic preamp, and Vintech Audio's 573 clone - a 500-series style of module preamp. This is similar to our first shootout video featuring a Vintage Neve 1073 vs. Vintech x73i, this shootout demonstrates how to match the levels (using phase cancellation) during the setup of the shootout, and then conducting a shootout blindly. Instead of featuring Sound Pure's Steinway Concert Grand model B, we feature a short acoustic guitar passage. If you want to listen to the hi res audio files of this shootout, email us at preamps@soundpure.com and we will be happy to send them to you for a closer listen, we would be more than happy to send you the results as well. Perhaps it's best to request the results after you hear the high resolution files- the best way to compare to preamps is by comparing them blindly.

The Vintech X73i (Neve 1073) Replica is compared side-by-side an original pair of Vintage Neve 1073's in a scientific mic preamp shootout at Sound Pure recording studios.  For the shootout, The Sound Pure Steinway Concert grand piano was recorded using a matched pair of Peluso P12 Tube microphones (Vintage Clones of the AKG C12 microphone) spaced across the piano's strings.  Each microphones' output was split, one to the Neve and one to the Vintech X73i.  Volume output at identical levels was tested by verifying virtually complete phase cancellation between the two signals when summed together (with one preamp set to phase reverse).  The Vintage clone Vintech X73i blew the minds of the engineers at Sound Pure studios, as the differences between the Vintech and the Neve were imperceptible.  After the listening, the Sound Pure engineers discuss their impressions of the sounds that they were hearing through the studio monitors in the Sound Pure control room.  Sound Pure is a proud seller of Vintech products, and can be reached to answer any questions about the mic pre shootout, or if you'd like the high res audio files for your own listening.  Sound Pure can be reached toll free at 888-528-9703.

  This blind shootout focuses on four of our favorite large diaphragm tube mics, the Lauten Oceanus, CharterOak SA538B, Peluso P12, and the Miktek CV4. First we'll hear them on a small body guitar using a finger style technique, then we switch it up to showcase how they sound using a flat pick technique on a large body guitar. All four of these mics were run through our Vintech 573 preamps and Apogee Symphony converter. If you want to know which mic is which and/or want to get the full length high resolution files for yourself, send us a quick email at mics@soundpure.com. Additionall all four of these mics are available for SoundPure's unique Try-Before-You-Buy program, so if you would like to hear how one of these mics will sound in your studio with your gear, give us a call and we'd be happy to talk more with you. If you like what you hear, check out this gear at SoundPure.com or give us a call anytime at 919.682.5552. Thanks for watching

In this video we conduct a blind shootout between two of Miktek's excellent large diaphragm condenser microphones, the CV3 and the CV4. First we'll hear the mics solo'd and completely dry, then we'll hear them once more in the context of a mix with acoustic guitars and a touch of reverb on the vocal. If you'd like to know which is which and get the hi-res audio files to compare for yourself, give us a ring or shoot us an email to mics(at)soundpure.com and we'd be happy to provide you with them. Additionally both the CV4 and CV3 are eligible for our Try-Before-You-Buy demo program, so if you like what you hear and would like to experience one of these mics for yourself, give us a call at anytime for more information.    We want to extend a huge thank you to our performers George and Danny of the NC roots rock band Jack the Radio! Make sure to check them and their tunes out at www.JacktheRadio.com.    If you like what you hear, check this gear out at SoundPure.com or give us a call anytime at 919.682.5552.

What we think:

The original Neve 1073 clone. And they nailed it! Fantastic recreation of the incredibly sought after Neve 1073 mic preamp and EQ. Considering that you can purchase three Vintech x73's and a power supply with a Full factory warranty for the price of one single Neve 1073 module (unwarrantied), we're suprised people still even bother. If the classic Neve sound is what you are after, look no further.

Description:

The Vintech X73 is a class A, all discrete, transformer balanced microphone preamplifier with equalizer. It is built with the same circuit design and components as the classic Neve 1073 module.


Features

- Custom made concentric style switches with gold plated contacts
- Genuine Elma brand Swiss made 22 position switch with gold plated contacts used on the input attenuator
- St. Ives input and output transformers
- Custom made machined aluminum knobs
- Custom Clarostat conductive plastic potentiometers in the eq section
- Output level display
- and Direct input for instruments.

All discrete circuitry means no usage of integrated circuits (no IC chips), all amplifier circuits are built from separate selected components.

 

Note: The Vintech 273 requires the Vintech Power Supply Unit, which is not included in this product. The Vintech Power Supply can power up to four individual channel strips, a 473 (four channel unit) and two single channel strips, a 473 and a 609 Stereo compressor, or a variety of other options. Contact us for more information about the Vintech Power Supply Unit.
