The Heritage Audio 8173 is a 80-Series module with a mic preamp and 4-band EQ that features the mythical Neve 1073 preamp and the mid-frequency band of the Neve 1081. In this module we have a very powerful equalizer that, with its two mid-frequency bands, covers almost the entire sound spectrum and a preamp with the classic sound of the consoles of the 70s. In the design of the Heritage Audio 8173, special care has been taken in sourcing the correct components that ensure performance will be as close to a 1070s unit as it is possible nowadays. The 8173 makes a must-have for lovers of vintage sound a reality.
