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.
