We had an artist in the studio who rented a Vintage pair of 1073's for his project and all the engineers here were spoiled until the project was over and they were sent back to Blackbird. So the search started for a cost effective way to get that sound back.
We found Heritage Audio and were so happy that we became a Heritage dealer. The Heritage Audio HA73JR is a recreation of the 1073 mic pre stage in a 500 Series modular setting so if you have a 500 Series power supply rack this is an extremely cost effective way to add a Neve vintage style mic pre to your arsenal. If you need a 500 Series rack please see our other autions for options on Heritage cost effective racks.
We are constantly searching for gear that has a unique character that it imparts on the audio that you pass through it and Heritage Audio does just that, gives you very close to the vintage Neve sound at 1/4 to 1/3 of the price of the vintage original. We are an authorized Heritage Audio dealer located between Chicago and Milwaukee. We are a Pro Audio Dealer as well as a four control room Neve & SSL equipped commercial recording studio with several engineers that have from five to twenty five years of experience in the industry.
The Heritage Audio gear is as close to the original as we have found with a Class-A all discrete component design. The info from Heritage Audio. Following his successful big brother, the 1073/500, the new ´73JR is a mic preamp in a single 500 series slot with some added features that will cover all the recording needs for engineers and musicians that don´t find the need to track with eq. Employing only discrete circuitry and conventional components, the 73 junior is a faithful 3 stage all class A 1073 preamp.Styroflex and tantalum capacitors have been used throughout. A useful all discrete class A hi pass filter has been added, essential for recording everything with the exception of probably kick drum and and bass. The Line mode allows for reamping of prerecorded tracks and it´s perfect for adding some class A color to lifeless recordings. The smart switched DI (automatically switches from MIC to DI mode when inserting a MONO ¼ jack) is an all discrete class A JFET circuit ahead of the MIC transformer, so all the juice is there. 80dB Class A Microphone preamplifier, HI-LO selectable minimum input impedance, balanced and floating. High gain positions show a higher impedance, ideal for old ribbon mics. 50Db Class A Line preamplifier, bridging input impedance, balanced and floating. All discrete Class A Ultra High Impedance J-Fet Direct Input on a high quality Neutrik Jack. The DI circuit is ahead of the Mic Input transformer, so the transformer is ON when in DI mode. DI is automatically switched on when inserting a jack.
Class A single ended, 2N3055 driven, high headroom output stage. PAD: 20dB Mic input attenuation ahead of the input transformer to avoid overloading it.
HI PASS FILTER: Active all discrete Class A 3rd order Bessel, 80Hz Hi Pass Filter. OUTPUT control to allow overloading of the preamp.
Internal slow turn-on +24v power supply for lower inrush current, which improves your lunchbox performance. Carnhill Input and Output transformers. 3 gain stage, genuine modular card construction. All active circuitry is on pluggable cards for easier service.
Marconi style knobs and vintage style engraved pushbuttons. Microphone input impedance: HI, 1200 Ohm minimum, LO, 300 Ohm minimum. Higher gain positions gradually have greater. Impedances, optimum for lo gain ribbon mics.
Input is Carnhill transformer balanced and floating. Line input impedance: 10K Ohms bridging, Carnhill transformer balanced and floating. DI input impedance: Greater than 2 Megohms, unbalanced.Output impedance: Less than 75 Ohms, Carnhill transformer balanced and floating, to drive a load of 600 ohms (factory terminated). Maximum output: Greater than +26dBm into 600 ohms. THD: Less than 0.025% at 1 Khz, less than 0.05% at 100Hz. Frequency response: 20Hz (+0.3dB) to 20Khz (-0.2dB) Maximum gain: Slightly greater than 80dB Noise: Less than -100dBm.
