BAE 1073MP Dual
BAE 1073MP Dual er en fullblods, håndbygget Neve 1073 mikrofonforsterker, identisk med designet fra 1973, i en hendig rack-løsning. Inngang for 2 x mikrofon, 2 x linje eller 2 x instrument - og med det karakteristiske soundet som Neve er så kjent for. Her finnes ingen snarveier rent produksjonsmessig, og dette er ”point to point” koblede komponenter og ingen billigproduserte kretskort i signalkjeden.
BAE har rettigheter til å bygge Neve preamper slik de ble bygget på 70- og 80-tallet, og sjekker man rundt på diverse forumer vil man raskt finne ut at Brent Averill Enterprises (BAE) er svært godt likt i de profesjonelle miljøene. Nå kan du få den varme, organiske lyden på dine innspillinger som ingen plug-in eller software klarer å gi deg.
- Same Class-A Mic Preamplifier used in BAE 1073 modules in a convenient portable / desktop format
- Same Carnhill (St Ives) input and output transformer and 283 amp card
- Hand-wired, fully discrete modular design (no micro components or ribbon connectors)
- Built-in, non-compromise power supplyClassic, red Marconi input knob and grey output knob
- DI input with "thru" for continued connection to next device (amplifier, pedal, etc.)
- Integrated 48V phantom power with illuminated switch
- Front mounted, gold-plated XLR in / out provide easy access to connections and keeps audio path clear of power supply field
- Same handwired construction, top quality components and attention to detail that BAE is known for
- Classic RAF Blue finish with satin finish chrome handle
- LED power indicator
- Detachable, IEC power cord with connection on rear
Massive headroom with pleasing overload characteristics -Enriched low frequencies -Smooth top end with a silky sheen -Lightly but musically compressed transients (the more you turn up the gain, the more compression you get) -Musicality and warmth without the muddiness associated with tube designs at similar price point -Recorded tracks stay muscular and clear within a dense mix.
After building the 1272 for many years, we were constantly asked to rack the units in an enclosed chassis. When we finally came around to it we opened up the possibility to add certain features like a phase button etc. After that we then tweeked the circuit to make the gain more like a 1073.
The new 1073MP comes at last in a totally enclosed chassis. The extra real estate gives us room to add a few new features.
- 1. Phase reverse button.
- 2. Impedance select between 1200 and 300 ohms.
- 3. Direct input switch.
- 4. Balanced line input
- 5. 48v phantom power.
Same 283 amp card as the 1073.
Same transformers as the 1073.
Same hand-wired modular construction that BAE is known for.
From Gear Slutz:
"This is coming from somoene who actually owned both the AMS and the BAE 1073. I sold the AMS and got the BAE (you can read my past posts to prove this as I sold the AMS here on GS and then posted my thoughts after I got the BAE). In short, to my ears the BAE is the real deal just like the AMS is the real deal. If I had to do it all over again, I would have bought the BAE the first time around. So in short, if you ask me, someone who actually made the switch, the answer is yes."

Set the gain knob (red Marconi) around 20 on the dial and set the output (grey knob) fully clockwise. This gives you the highest headroom and cleanest signal path. Every click is in 5db increments so if one click is too hot, attenuate the output to get inbetween the 5db steps.
Another trick people like to do is to put the final mix through the line inputs on the back to get that harmonic distortion. To get even more of that Class A output stage is to come out of channel 1 and into channel 2 then you have an accumulative effect of that classic output stage.
