A Neve 1073 EQ delivered to you at a wonderful price, and delivers all the build quality and classic tone you can handle...all while looking the part!
The 73EQ JR is a fully featured Line Input module for the 500 Series.
It not only shares its 3-band Equalizer with his big brother, the 1073, but also shares the same transformer coupled line preamp and Class A transformer balanced output stage.
These facts make the 73EQ JR unique in its class, being able to capture a full transformer based, Class A sound without relying on external preamps.
The Equalizer features the same Baxandall type High and Low shelf found in the 1073, with the addition of a high frequency selector switch. 4 different frequencies are possible instead of the fixed 12Khz one.
The mid band is the same as the dual inductor 1073 one. This translates into thick low and sweet high midrange boosts without being muddy or brittle!
The line preamp has a range of +6 to -20dB, allowing heavy eq boosts without saturating the converters.
Finally, special care has been taken with power handling, implementing internal +24v slow turn on regulation ( about 20 seconds to reach full voltage ). This makes your 73EQ JR independent of the rest of the slots and makes your lunchbox´s PSU happier.
