There are other threads speaking about these..
BAE gives you more freqs points, a stellar DI and an output knob for the same price (right now it's an intro price).. oh.. and it's built by BAE.. a no brainer to me..

In all honestly I'm not an Heritage fan, but hey that's me.. apparently there's plenty of people loving them for some reasons..

So your best bet is to get both in your place and decide with your ears..

Let's try to keep it clean..

These are my 0.02$,

I don't want to start a flame thread or something.. I simply don't like the sound, the build quality and even less their "politics/marketing"..

For me it's original neves or bae, since they also have a long background fixing/racking neve stuff (especially Avedis, who added freq's point to the bae eq and brought his knowledge to some of the bae products) and correct information about that stuff.

I checked original neves vs bae vs heritage 10xx series module one next to the other one.. so that's my opinion.
Again, that's me, it's a free forum/world and anyone could have his opinion.. that's simply my take on it.

Other members might think different, that's fine with me..

I had both a bae 1073 mp and heritage 73dma. I preferred the heritage by a hair. The bae just had a little more low mids that I wasn't crazy about. I also liked the top end better on the heritage. They both have the neve sound and you would not go wrong with either.

Tough call, maybe a hair different? If it's not dead on...both company are well build their products, now pick one or may get both then return one after try it in your studio to your taste..
Myself, I would go with Heritage Audio without hesitate.

The Heritage stuff is unbelievably good in our experience, both sonically and build / parts used. It has "that sound" for sure. It even has "that look" which matters to many.

I'm with Warren on this one. The Heritage is killer. Build quality is top notch. It's the closest thing I have found to an original 1073. Don't get me wrong, the BAE is still a great piece.

Try them

Own HA, but I've also owned BAE 1023 (and Aurora aswell) in the past.
All very nice MP:s, but I've kept the HA because it suits my preferences best.
Might be imagination or whatever, but For me it feels more "finished".
I don't miss the extra Highs on the eq OR the DI at all, but some might and obviously does.

It's somehow like choosing between Ferrari or Lamborghini?

To the OP, I would say that if your recordings are generally a little thin or too bright, then go with the BAE. If your recordings are a little muddy or dull, then go with a Heritage.
