The AMS Neve 1073LB and API Lunchbox 8HC is an 8-way rack bundle featuring 8 Neve 1073LB mic/pre amp modules all inside a compact and portable API 500 series Lunchbox. The Neve 1073LB is a professional preamp designed after the classic 1073 microphone preamplifier in shape and components so it retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original and now it is available in a 500-Series, Lunchbox format. With new features like a fine TRIM control, switchable microphone input impedance, signal presence LED, intelligent protected switching of front combi-XLR input connector and Neve's clever Audio Processing Input design, the 1073LB takes your LunchboxTM to the next level.

Simply install into an empty slot in your compatible LunchboxTM rack, connect your microphone or line level signals and inject that legendary sound into your audio creations. Launched in 1970, the 1073 is the first choice of leading producers and artists, delivering the unique Neve sound on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years. The big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre - from rock to pop, hip-hop to rap and thrash to classical. The API Lunchbox 8HC is an 8-slot 500-series chassis with DB25 connectivity, channel linking, universal external power supply and the ability to rackmount with the optional rack ears. The Lunchbox 8HC is compatible with all standard 500-series and VPR-approved modules.
