AMS Neve Introduces 1073OPX Mic Pre-amp

To mark the 50th anniversary of its legendary 1073 microphone preamp, AMS Neve has brought the story full circle with the launch of the 1073OPX, a brand new Octal Microphone/Line/Instrument Preamplifier that designed to meet the needs of the modern studio environment.

The analogue and digital monitor signal path of the 1073OPX allows it to be used as a complete standalone I/O interface or as a live room remote preamp with a full, latency-free monitoring cue mix signal path. The optional digital I/O card comes with Neve’s industry-revered mastering-grade converters with up to 192kHz/24-Bit A/D conversion over USB connection.
