CK Andy , 11.11.2020
As I was no longer satisfied with interface built-in preamp, I looked for some budget preamp and this WA-73 hits me right up.

As I am not familiar with the sound of real 1073, I can't tell how well it recreated the original. But it performs well as a mic preamp IMO, as it brings characters that many people wanted. It can be your go-to options for tracking vocal, as when you dialed a good EQ setting you can just plug and record. I use WA-47jr and Aston mics (stealth and spirit) on it, and looking forward to get some high end mic to challenge it.

good sounding preamp

Wa is a pretty good sounding preamp but it would be great if the low and high eq pot would have q instead of just having a shelf and the middle frequencies are wider
