I've had them from new, and they have been my go to pres since then. I have used them on recordings by many fantastic artists including Paloma Faith, Ella Eyre, Becky Hill, Mica Paris, Syedah Garrett etc.
Heritage Audio's full fat 1073s. All are in perfect working order, having been serviced and tested by Tim Walker, who is one of the finest audio techs in the business. The serial number of this one is 1411406. No reserve so grab yourselves a bargain :. The 73JR is a true ´73 style mic preamp in a single 500 series slot with some added features that will cover all the recording needs for engineers and musicians that don´t find the need to track with eq.Employing only discrete circuitry and conventional components, the 73JR is a faithful 3 stage all class A ´73 preamp. Styroflex and tantalum capacitors have been used throughout. A useful all discrete class A hi pass filter has been added, essential for recording everything with the exception of probably kick drum and and bass. The Line mode allows for reamping of prerecorded tracks and it´s perfect for adding some class A color to lifeless recordings. The smart switched DI (automatically switches from MIC to DI mode when inserting a MONO ¼ jack) is an all discrete class A JFET circuit ahead of the MIC transformer, so all the juice is there.
Since its introduction in 2013, it has become a classic DI for bass. This makes your 500 series enclosure´s power supply healthier and makes the 73JR independent of the rest of the slots. Microphone input impedance: HI, 1200 Ohm minimum, LO, 300 Ohm minimum. Higher gain positions gradually have greater impedances, optimum for lo gain ribbon mics.
Input is transformer balanced and floating. Line input impedance: 10K Ohms bridging, transformer balanced and floating. DI input impedance: Greater than 2 Megohms, unbalanced. Output impedance: Less than 75 Ohms, transformer balanced and floating, to drive a load of 600 ohms (factory terminated). Maximum output: Greater than +26dBu into 600 ohms.
THD: Less than 0.025% at 1 Khz, less than 0.05% at 100Hz. Frequency response: 20Hz (+0.3dB) to 20Khz (-0.2dB) Maximum gain: Slightly greater than 80dB Noise: Less than -100dBu.
