Warm Audio WA-73 + WA-273EQ !!

BAE 1073 vs Avalon VT-737SP vs Warm Audio tb12

Personally I'd start with the BAE 1073, they are beautifully built and you'll of started your recordings with a really professional boutique handmade pre amp. Worth every penny if you afford it. Look at the BAE 1073D the EQ on that unit is utterly fantastic.

Product Description

The 1073D (Deluxe) is essentially a 1073 module with extra high frequencies and a direct input for the 500 series market. Built using the same exact parts as the 10 series module, the 1073D features Carnhill transformers, Elma gold plated switches and Canford wire making this the best sounding Class A mic‐pre EQ module on the block. Because BAE did not want to compromise, the parts are such that they made this a 3 space wide module for optimal quality in contrast to building a smaller rack space version lacking the same premium components.
