Neve 83010/10852 Mic-Pre / Filter / Comp-Gate / EQ. This is from a custom 8108. This board was designed in 1979 according to BBC specifications. Was installed at CBS News in Studio 47 by Rupert Neve himself and was the main console from 1983 - 2009 (Howard Cosell / Dan Rather / Katie Couric) when it was replaced by a Calrec.
I installed it in the old Howard Stern studio. It is essentially a 51xx series Neve broadcast console. The channels have been in service until 2012 and were regularly cleaned, recapped, and serviced by the original receiving engineer until decommissioning (by me) in 2012. I personally decommissioned the console.Strangely, the 51 series was typically the "broadcast, television, and film" series and the 81 series was the "music" series. This means little now as either can be used for music production - but that is how they were marketed things at the time. BTW -- There is no 8300 series. Has 83010 module model numbers -- as is standard, module numbers are not indicative of the series designation. The particular channel is based around a number of submodules with a few impressive CBS custom requests. The submodules on these channels are consistent with the series. Sound wise, people sometimes refer to these as Baby V Neve consoles because they share a circuits similar to the V series. They were good sounding consoles and once recapped, cleaned up, and calibrated (as these are) they still sound AMAZING. SO -- The Channel model number is.
The console was essentially a. Customized 8108 series (says Geoff Tanner).
For power, you will need +/-24V, +/-15V, and +48V. With Power Xformer can handle the job perfectly. These are classic audio processors, ready for another 30+ years of music making, are super quiet, and shine on a variety of sources.
For a quick, clean, quiet solution to power them, I would recommend using the JLM PowerStation V3 Kit. You can get these on your bench and use the JLM power calculator to confirm but - Joe Malone (owner of JLM) has specd it with me (rated to power 6+ channels) and Mark Schomaker has also used this solution. Theoretically, the Kraftwerk solution on the site is exactly the way to go. 2 x 11 way 51X racks half load with 500 and half loaded with 51X modules.If it werent for the financial constraint, Id happily keep these in my studio. You have 3 days to see if you want to keep it. They weigh about 11 pounds. FYI -- other Channels to consider.
