By PSW Staff • April 5, 2011 The AMS Neve 1073LBEQ 500 Vintage King Audio has announced the release of the Neve 1073LBEQ 500 Series Mono Equalizer Module, from AMS Neve. The EQ is the second 500-series format module AMS Neve has built in the image of the Neve 1073 Classic module. Their 1073LB mic pre debuted at AES 2010 last fall, receiving remarkable critical acclaim and incredible comparisons to the legendary Classic 1073. The Neve 1073LB 500 Series EQ is available in the United States exclusively through Vintage King Audio and select distributors worldwide ($1295.00 USD). The module will begin shipping April 28, 2011. The original Neve 1073 module is arguably the most desirable EQ and microphone preamp and first choice for countless engineers since its inception 40 years ago. Imitated (but never matched) by a number of manufacturers, AMS Neve has officially recreated the 1073’s big punchy sound for the second time, and made it available for your lunchbox with the Neve 1073LBEQ. The EQ joins the Neve 1073LB mic pre in the company’s roster of 500-series format lunchbox modules. “The industry’s response to the Neve 1073LB mic preamp was overwhelmingly positive and we anticipate that the 1073LBEQ will do equally as well in the marketplace,” says Mike Nehra, Co-Owner of Vintage King Audio. “Vintage King’s customers specifically asked for the 1073 in a 500 series format and we worked closely with Neve for some time to bring it to the market. You can tell Neve really took pride and went to great lengths with this EQ as well as the 1073LB mic pre.” “The build quality is solid and the tone of this unit stands neck in neck with classic and new Neve 1073 modules.” Crafted in England by Neve engineers, the 1073LBEQ retains the unique sonic characteristics of its original predecessor by using the same architecture, matching components and legendary 3-band EQ design. With new features like a signal presence LED and Neve’s Audio Processing Insert design, the 1073LB EQ takes you lunchbox to the next level and allows the audio to/from the EQ module to be inserted into the audio path of an existing 1073LB.
