It was a silly philosphy. Take the EQ out of the equation and the 1081 is a 10468 and BA338 and the BA340 and LO2567 output stage is a massive part of the sound.

You just can't remove the latter and say it sounds like a 1081.

It's silly because you could also call it a 3401R, 3402R or 3405R, all of which use the 10468 and BA338. Without the EQ, why call it a 1081?

Same with the 1073... take away the EQ and you have a 1290... not a 1073.

It's all to do with buzz words....
