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.

  • High Frequency: +/-16dB fixed frequency shelving at 10kHz, 12kHz and 16kHz
  • Low Frequency: +/-16dB shelving with selectable frequencies of 35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz & 220Hz
  • Mid Range: +/-18dB peaking, fixed 'Q' with, selectable centre frequencies of 0.36kHz, 0.7kHz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz & 7.2kHz
  • High Pass Filter: 50Hz, 80Hz, 160Hz & 300Hz
  • Phase Button: 180°

Neve 1073DPA vs. Millennia HV-3 shootout

I have the BAE 1073D 500 series Pre/EQ it's a three unit 500 series. The BAE 500's are in no way inferior build quality wise - of course you must use a decent chassis, though mine is in nothing fancier than Bento 6 chassis and works perfectly. Inside it is literally a work out art, the...
