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.

A Must Have!

Product Review

Black Lion Audio does it again! This pre is a must have for any home or commercial studio. It runs a little lower off of the Hi-Z input than the B12A, but it has a nice warm tone to it! Seriously, pick one of these pres up. You won’t be disappointed!

Well worth every penny!

Product Review

This pre is exceptionally built and exquisite in the studio. Black Lion Audio has designed a sonic beauty. My preference is always to choose gear that sonically makes sense. This preamp is robust, gritty and adds amazing girth to its intended source. Any buyer won’t be disappointed and the price won’t break the bank. Very pleased!!!!!

Amazing 1073 Sound

Product Review

Amazing preamp has that thick, warm 1073 neve sound. I have only used it on rap vocals but for that application it is amazing.

Fantastic all around

Product Review

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.
