PRO AUDIO: Golden Age Project PREQ-73 reviewed

Read it in German here

Here is a Google translate:

Since even a high-quality microphone reveals his true sound with a high-quality preamp, we want to give "Project Goldenage" compliance with this article, the latest product of the already renowned Swedish manufacturer. Already PRE-73, which derives its names from the legendary Neve 1073, so is the PREQ-73 preamp with a vintage character. Since original hand-wired by Neve preamps, such as the legendary 1073, which came on the market in the 70s, have become unaffordable, there are always similar replicas of these devices, like eg the AKG C12, which is now available in countless, sometimes less, sometimes excellent replicas. The fan base of the already longer available PRE-73 is great and it also no surprise that there are countless modifications to this device, such as Conversions are on Carnhill transformers etc..

In addition to the PREQ PRE-73-73 has a built in equalizer. The PREQ-73 is completely discreet, and built in Class A circuit. Which is to say that there are no integrated circuits (IC's) in the signal path are. This is mainly there to keep distortion as low as possible. A further advantage is that these devices are characterized also lighter and less prone to repair. The PREQ-73 is very high quality and works through his flawless red finish and completely made ??of noble metal housing and stable, the wonderfully buttery soft momentary switch and current knobs bear his part to help. The circuit design is perfectly executed and the soldering clean. Unfortunately, the external power supply may not fit as this, and so does not quite Road-ready.

The PREQ -73 is the operational concept as the Neve 1073 . It's that simple actually . With the typical gain control to fix the power at which the two precursors are approached according to the required reinforcement. To use the Line port is regulated from -20 to +10 db , you want to amplify a microphone, you can adjust the slider from 20 to 45db . Enough power from this still does not , for example for ribbon mics , the second precursor is active from 50db , with which you can then step up to 80db . Technical performance of the PREQ -73 thus has a lot under the hood. To even get to the Class-A circuit the sound distortion-free , capacitors are installed in the PREQ 73 tantalum. Of course the PREQ 73 via a switchable phantom power, as well as a phase switch, with which you can change the polarity , which can be useful from time to time , eg when the comes from the decrease of the sound pressure drums through to cancellations. The PREQ -73 also features a low- Z input that provides excellent services for low- output instruments.

The Equalizer can be for each of the levels , as well as for the bass , select the frequency to be changed . This allows the left of the two EQ controls set to either 55Hz or 175Hz , the right of control that is responsible for the heights on either 8 kHz or 12 kHz. When you activate the equalizer , the phase is reversed . So you turn on the equalizer, it is necessary to activate the phase switch. We come to the most important , namely the sound of the PREQ 73rd He is very good and gives the votes a breezy , silky warm vintage sound. The low noise performance is absolutely exemplary. Sounds of the PREQ 73 now like a Neve 1073 ? Actually, no. But he must not , when you consider that he did not even 1/10 of cost , at only € 380 . The estimated typical rough Neve sound you can unfortunately see only with a lot of imagination . But for the money he makes more than you can expect it to , so he does not need to hide from much more expensive preamps. The PREQ -73 has what it takes to be a starting point for modifications , which can not be determined a long time coming .
With the PREQ 73 Golden Age brings an excellent preamp / equalizer combination to the market. The workmanship is impeccable, even if the external power supply to the rest somehow not quite seem to fit. The operation is easy and sound great, it does not need to hide from much more expensive preamps. Like the PRE-73 also has the PREQ 73 it takes to once again become the basis for countless modifications. The price of 380 is justified in every case. So he gets definitely a buy recommendation.
