Warm Audio WA273-EQ

Inspired by the iconic 1073 that shaped the sounds of 1970's rock, Warm Audio's WA273-EQ offers users an excellent way to harness the legendary tone scoping capabilities of the 1073 but with a modest price tag. This 2-channel preamp and equalizer sports hand-wired 1073 emulated technology that's all Class A, fully discrete and contains professional standard Carnhill Transformers. 80dB will take care of any quiet ribbon microphones and produces rich bottom end, clear mids and crisp highs. The 1073 is considered as the king of preamps and equalizers... and thanks to Warm Audio, artists can capture the sonic beauty of the classic with the WA273-EQ.
