"X81 Class A" mic pre with equalizer. While many people love the classic Neve 1081 module because of it's versatile equalizer section, many feel that it's use of class AB amplifiers causes it to lack that certain "magic" associated with the class A amplifiers found in the Neve 1073 module.
Our "X81 Class A" features a class A, all discrete microphone preamplifier, but with a more comprehensive four band equalizer with "Q" adjustments on the two mid range frequencies.
We utilize the same class A amplifier designs found in the Neve 1073 module throughout our X81 Class A. The equalizer section features ten low mid frequency points, 10 hi mid frequencies, 5 frequecy choices on both the low and high shelving adjustments.
There is also a high pass filter, a D.I. and an ouput strength meter.
