Heritage Audio announces 73JR 500 Series module

Following his successful big brother, the 1073/500, the new ´73JR is a mic preamp in a single 500 series slot with some added features that will cover all the recording needs for engineers and musicians that don´t find the need to track with eq.

Employing only discrete circuitry and conventional components, the ’73 junior is a faithful 3 stage all class A 1073 preamp. Styroflex and tantalum capacitors have been used throughout. No corners were cut.

A useful all discrete class A hi pass filter has been added, essential for recording everything with the exception of probably kick drum and and bass.

The Line mode allows for reamping of prerecorded tracks and it´s perfect for adding some class A color to lifeless recordings.

The smart switched DI (automatically switches from MIC to DI mode when inserting a MONO ¼” jack ) is an all discrete class A JFET circuit ahead of the MIC transformer, so all the juice is there.

Finally, special care has been taken with power handling, implementing internal +24v slow turn on regulation (about 20 seconds to reach full voltage ).This makes your lunchbox PSU healthier and makes the 73JR independent of the rest of the slots.

Peter, besides the absence of the eq, what (if anything) is different between this and your other 500 series 1073?

Think of it as a single channel DMA73 repackaged in a single 500 series slot!

Excited!

Was just about to pull the trigger on the 19" rack DMA73. Now, I'm reconsidering the whole 500 format thing... Fantastic to be able to make such a choice!

Is there an EQ coming for the 500 format as well?

Hope so!

Is the design a 1290, or is it 1272 with an extra gain stage?

I'm very interested in the 73jr. Does anybody have one yet? If so, what are your impressions? The guts look really nice!

Why edit the API brand name out of one lunchbox, and keep the Lindell Audio on the other ?!?

Just recieve a pair of these bad boys. Have only tried on bass DI and micing an Acoustic with a 414 and it sounded pretty bad ass!! With acoustic it sounded very smooth through the HAjr73 with the HPF on. So far it seems like a keeper.

On DI it was very close sounding to my Vintech 573, but I didn't spend enough time with it to say one sounded better. The HAjr definitely breaks up in a cool way.

Tonight I'm recording a drum session and vocals so I will report back with my thoughts.
