With 80dB of gain and a fully discrete transformer-balanced signal path, the sound is a revelation: harmonically rich bottom end, focused midrange, and slightly resonant highs. Vintage 1073s used different transformer variants throughout their production run; but the most coveted were the very first ones made by Marinair Radar, due to their fluid and forgiving nature that saturates sweetly when pushed.
They have been known to bring engineers to tears when they hear how gorgeous their mixes sound through them! Warm Audio turned to Carnhill Transformers of Cambridgeshire, UK, to design meticulous replicas of these most desirable early 1073 transformers. The results are stunning, and to our ears tantalizingly close to early vintage 1073s. Low (35Hz, 60Hz, 110Hz, 220Hz), Mid (360Hz, 700Hz, 1.6kHz, 3.2kHz, 4.8kHz, 7.2kHz), High (10kHz, 12kHz, 16kHz), Highpass.
