Taking the Legendary 1073 Design to the Next Level. While the 1084 builds on the same basic design of the world-famous 1073®, it offers a significantly different palette of frequency selections. The 1084 also features a “Q” switch, allowing the user to choose between two different Q types, either narrow or wide with respect to the parametric band.
Hand Built in the UK Hand-built in our 60,000 square foot factory, based in Burnley UK. The 1084 follows the original 80 series module specification from the early days of Neve®.
An Enhanced 1073® The 1084 builds on the same basic design of the world-famous 1073®; however, it offers a significantly different palette of frequency selections. In addition, the 1084 features a “Q” switch, allowing the user to choose between two different Q types, either narrow or wide, concerning the parametric band.
Expanded EQ The 1084’s improved EQ section builds upon the sonic foundation laid down by the 1073®, featuring selectable high shelf frequency points for greater control over the airband, Hi-Q mid-band setting for greater precision over the presence range and an added low pass filter to complement the 1073’s HPF.
Marinair® Transformers The 1084 uses the same Marinair® specification transformers as the 1073® for its microphone & line inputs and on the balanced line output stage helping to produce classic Neve® module character.
Class A Discrete The 1084 uses discrete class-A circuitry throughout, this design is entirely free from crossover distortion and produces a subtle warm & musical analogue hue to any line or microphone source.
Unique 1073® Gain Staging The classic 5dB stepped Elma switch delivers accurate gain levels throughout the gain range. This unique layout means there is no need for a mic/line switch; the pot itself selects the preamp and input. Three distinct gain stages provided by two independent transistor-based preamplifiers provide gain for any DI, line input or microphone signal.
High Output - Harmonic Saturation The 1073® preamp found in the 1084 produces up to 80dB of microphone gain. By combining multiple gain stages, the 1084 preamp brings out the musical drive and harmonic saturation for which the 1073 is famous.
Phase Invert The 180-degree phase flip feature is extremely useful in multi-microphone setups with multiple preamps, ideal for top and bottom snare micing.
High/Low Impedance The 1084 module has two impedance settings accessed via the rear-mounted Hi/Lo switch. With settings of 1.2kΩ and 300Ω, the impedance can be optimised for use with a wide range of modern or vintage microphones.
Horizontal or Vertical Orientation The 1084 comes in two orientations, vertical and horizontal. Vertical orientation modules can be built to install into a console or an 8-module rack. Additionally, horizontal modules can be made for use in the 3U stereo pair rack.
