80 Series

1073

The Heritage Audio 1073 is entirely handmade in our facilities in Spain, employing the same old-fashioned wiring and soldering techniques of the 70s. Manufacturing a single module takes several days of one of our master builders. All its circuitry is held into four plug-in cards.

The Heritage Audio 1084 has been engineered to fill input module slots in the restoration process of vintage 80 Series sound mixing consoles.

The 6673 is a 4 band equalizer in a 1073 sized module, combining the mid band of the vintage 1066 module and an expanded 1073 mid band. This fact allows a more complex equalizing whilst at the same time maintaining the same sonic qualities.

The Heritage Audio 2264E is a classic diode bridge based compressor and limiter with the unique feature of being all Class A, utilizing a 1073 style output stage for this matter. How this amplifier reacts to compression is something to be heard and not missed!

he 8173 could be easily described as a 1073 with the mid bands of a 1081. We´ve decided to keep the 1073 Baxandall shelving lo and hi eq bands as they sound amazing, but have implemented a choice of 3 hi shelving frequencies, a la 1084.

A 2 unit rack enclosure housing up to two 80 Series modules when outboard operation is preferred. It features illuminated phantom power switches and faders on every slot, as well as the same D.I. inputs found in the acclaimed ´73JR.

A 5 unit rack enclosure housing up to eight 80 Series modules when outboard operation is preferred. It features illuminated phantom power switches and faders on every slot.

The 80 Series definitely represent the highest end of the high end in outboard gear.
The extremely labor intensive manufacturing techniques of the 80 series modules, along with a careful choice of components, make The Heritage Audio 80 Series a difficult to beat contender.
Usually associated with the biggest studios and busiest producers in the industry, Heritage Audio has pushed the limits in order to offer a wider range of microphone preamplifiers / equalizers and dynamics at a more attractive price, with sets of features never found before.
