Not what I expected, but still very good
Revilo666 , 19.01.2021
I may be biased as I have extensive work working on real neve consoles with the real 1073s but its a really good clone. The Q factors are a lot narrower than the original so its got a slightly punchier sound than the smooth curves i was looking for and the high shelf sits more at 10khz rather than 12 so when comparing against a 1073 directly, its a different animal slightly. That being said, for a stand alone pre and EQ it still sounds great and is slightly on the API spectrum. Its saturation from driving the pre however is absolutely superb and proper crunchy. Highly recommend.

Myno, 28.04.2020
Ho acquistato questo preamp per il mio homestudio.
Il prodotto si presenta bene, buona fattura e buona qualità complessiva. Non mi piace molto come si muovono le manopole blu (filtro), mi danno un senso di poco professionale. I pulsanti in plastica non mi entusiasmano. In ogni caso tutto è al suo posto e non traballa, le manopole dell'EQ si muovono correttamente. E' un buon prodotto.
Il sound del pre non mi ha entusiasmato subito, delicato, medioso, mi aspettavo un distorsione armonica più grassa e morbida. Il sound è comunque ottimo, gli elementi si aprono e ha quell'effetto "in face".
Mi ha colpito positivamente l'equalizzatore. Davvero bello, ben gestibile e mai acido nelle sonorità. Complessivamente un'ottima macchina.
Dopo qualche tempo, usandolo e passandoci le dita, si sono già cancellati un po' i numeri dei potenziometri.
