TAF 1073

Each item is individually hand made to our exacting standards.

The TAF 1073 DP is a high quality 2 channel microphone

preamplifier hosted in a 1U rack case. Big and present sound

with a harmonically rich low end and very focused mid range.

This is our recreation of the famous 1073 type Class A

preamplifier without the additional EQ found on this classic unit.

The design employs an all transistor based 3 gain stage

preamplifier circuit, all discreet transformer-coupled on both

inputs and outputs. High headroom, very low distortion and lots

of available gain are the characteristics of this design.

We use only high quality components with tight tolerances. Also

due to carefully placement of inside components, a very low

crosstalk between channels is achieved. A separate power supply

helps to achieve very low noise operation. 

An interesting function is the output trim selector switch that

converts the output level control to a 0 to -80 dB output fader

level control or a 0 to -6 dB output level trim control. With this in

hand you can use the gain rotary switch at very high levels and

attenuate the output level control to obtain a proper signal level

at the output without clipping the tape machine or DAW

converters. Conversely you can use this output level control to

match the levels between channels precisely with a 0 to -6 dB

range. 

Both channels have a HI Z input on front panel for instruments

and keyboards. 

It can be ordered without the TAF B283 internal boards. This is a

good solution for those who have the luxury of having an original

vintage NEVE B283 or B183 boards and want to make a full

preamplifier out of them. You have to open the unit and plug

those boards to the internal 18 pin connector and they will be

ready to work with all of the features
