Looks freaking cool Congrats on getting this to market.

Confirming: this is Class A/B and is a distinctly different mic pre-amp from your 1073 offerings? And along the same lines, is the Line Input the same or different from the 1073?

Everything is different from the ez1073's (which are class A)... this is Class A/B output... it is exactly what you would expect to be !

This looks amazing. Colin, while you're here, I noticed on the site that theres an option to now get output trim on the 500 series 2 space 1073. Is it possible for this to be retrofitted?? I own two and I'd love some tasty output trim.

It is not practical to retro-fit that option to the ez1073-500

I pulled the trigger on one, excited to try it out. It was a sad day when I had to return the rental 1081's I used on a recent project.

We generally have all the popular products available from stock..... but at the moment we are a little behind with these so the lead time is currently 2-3 days.... We should get that down to zero days "available off the shelf" within the next few days.
