The X73i is a class A, all discrete, transformer balanced microphone preamplifier with equalizer both based on the classic Neve 1073 module. It is constructed utilizing modern manufacturing techniques which allow us to offer this product at an incredible value. Now practically anyone can record with the classic sound of vintage modules without having to deal with inflated vintage prices.

The X73i features the same class A mic pre as the X73 with all of the same eq parameters plus additional mid range frequencies, selectable input impedance, 1/4 inch D.I. on front panel, transformer balanced mic and line inputs, phase reverse, phantom power switch, eq switch, 70db of gain, quality Grayhill rotary switches, custom machined aluminum knobs, plus many other features.

We just returned from this year's AES convention where we conducted listening tests between our new X73i and vintage Neve 1073's we rented from Dreamhire in New York. Many folks did the comparison and practically all who did found the units to sound amazingly identical.

Warm WA73EQ vs. Heritage Audio HA73EQ
