the difference between vintage 1073 and vintage 1073 is that only a small fraction of 1073 actually have the marinair transformers. a non-marinair 1073 is not worth the money imho if you see it as an investment.

the best neve pre are octal-based "round-can" 1066s. they sound like nothing else in the universe, they are rare as hell and a few of those even were made with the 1073 12k HiShelf card before 1073s came out. investment-wise those are the keepers.
