    Product Description

    Introducing Black Lion Audio’s own Neve 1073-style microphone preamp, the B173! Don’t let the price tag fool you. This is not only a serious contender for the most ‘bang for your buck’ preamp in existence, but sonically stands on its own at any price point. Black Lion Audio’s goal was to capture the essence of the original Neve 1073 at a price anyone can afford, and they’ve accomplished just that! Give the B173 a try and be prepared to be blown away!

    The B173 is Black Lion Audio’s homage to the highly revered Neve 1073 mic pre. The B173 is a single channel mic pre-amp with input and output transformers, stepped gain, output level control, phantom power, and phase. It features a DI, 80dB of gain, and is housed in a 1U, 1/2 rack chassis.

    What is your overall opinion of this product?
    I use this primarily for vocals. I have recorded some instruments with it, usually precision. I run a U87 clone with it, and It works very very well. The ease of use is what makes this unit worth it. very solidly built unit. Pair this up with a decent or high quality mic and your vocals will be very warm and have that creamy dynamic to them. Like i said before also my favorite thing is there isn't much to the operation of the unit. simple and effective.
