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.
