Heritage Audio's new line of affordable Neve style mic pre's make that classic sound of the 1073 within reach of every. We had an artist in the studio who rented a Vintage pair of 1073's for his project and all the engineers here fell in love with them until the project was over and they were sent back to Blackbird Rentals.
So the search started for a cost effective way to get that sound back. We found Heritage Audio and were so happy that we became a Heritage dealer. The new Heritage Audio HA-73x2 is the most cost effective way to get that classic sound you have heard on most every recording for the last 45 years.Comes ready to rack with a remote power supply to. We are constantly searching for gear that has a unique character that it imparts on the audio that you pass through it and Heritage Audio does just that, gives you very close to the vintage 1073 sound at 1/10 of the price of the vintage original. We are an authorized Heritage Audio dealer located between Chicago and Milwaukee. We are a Pro Audio Dealer as well as a four control room Neve & SSL equipped commercial recording studio with several engineers that have from five to twenty five years of experience in the industry.
The Heritage Audio gear is as close to the original as we have found with a Class-A all discrete component design. Here is the info from Heritage Audio.
We used the expertise and reputation obtained from its popular hand wired cousin, the HA-1073 a Neve recreation to design the HA73x2. The HA73x2 Elite dual channel microphone preamp is made to the same specifications as the acclaimed ´73JR and DMA73 Heritage Audio models at a price never heard before. Leveraging time-consuming hand soldered series, HA is able to offer a zero compromise, high quality yet very affordable alternative to the growing entry-level brands.
A combination of mass production, lean manufacturing and modern construction techniques, minimizes hand labor and therefore its high associated costs when manufacturing takes place in Western Europe. By passing the savings straight into the end users´ pockets, Heritage Audio releases the most affordable outboard preamps and equalizers in its class up to date. Key components to obtain a true vintage sound are indeed maintained, like the industry standard Carnhill transformers, hand wound in St Ives, England. Manufactured in the same Spanish facilities as the rest of the HA line of products, the rack mountable HA73 Elite presents the classic sounding recording preamp that, for generations, has been regarded for its rich, musical qualities and its ability to dramatically improve the sound of almost any source.
Further, it includes the same exact great sounding JFET DI circuit found in the ´73JR and a fully discrete class A high pass filter. With 80 dB of available gain and dedicated mic, line, and instrument inputs; the HA73 Elite has everything you need to bring microphones and instruments to life with vintage vibe and thickness. The HA73x2 Elite features gain, output trim, -20db pad, polarity reverse, a high pass filter, and +48v phantom power. It comes housed in a rugged 1RU British steel chassis and utilizes an external power supply for low noise operation.
The HA73x2 features Carnhill input and output transformers, high quality pots and switches, and best of all is 100% made by Heritage Audio. What is the Elite Series? The Heritage Audio Elite series represents a new level of affordability in high quality, classic console preamp and equalizer reproductions, and is the culmination of all our years of research and experience in building reproductions of the world's most beloved classic recording channels. When we began to develop this product line, we knew from the beginning what we could and could not do in the pursuit of making these modules less costly to manufacture.
We would not compromise on the ingredients that go in to our designs. We knew would need to maintain the best quality components throughout, from the switches and potentiometers to the Carnhill transformers and inductors, to semiconductors and quality, long-life capacitors. We knew that we would need to maintain the same sonic pedigree established by our existing product line of hand-wired, hand-assembled reproductions. Craftsmanship is a part of the Heritage Audio reputation; and we knew that to maintain our level of quality, we had to make these products here.
