Heritage Audio expands ELITE SERIES with HA-73 EQX2 DUAL MIC AMP/EQUALIZER
Following in the footsteps of its successful single-channel predecessor, the HA-73 EQ MIC AMP/EQUALIZER, European pro audio manufacturer Heritage Audio is proud to announce availability of its HA-73 EQX2 DUAL MIC AMP/EQUALIZER — equipped with two mic pre/equalizers in the same rack unit to tender twice the mojo for less than twice the cost as the latest addition to the premium processing excellence-exhibiting ELITE SERIES — as of September 29…
Heritage Audio’s premium processing excellence-exhibiting ELITE SERIES products are all made to the same specifications as its acclaimed ’73 JR (true 1073-style mic preamp in a single 500 Series slot), ’73EQ JR (fully-featured line input module for the 500 Series), and DMA 73 DUAL MIC AMPLIFIER models in a price range with no contenders. Combining mass production, lean manufacturing, and modern construction techniques has helped Heritage Audio to reduce the high costs associated with western European-manufactured goods, guaranteeing the same quality standards for all of its products. And all without forsaking key components called upon for achieving a true vintage sound, such as industry-standard Carnhill transformers, hand-wound in St Ives, England.
Employing three correct-vintage ‘Vinkor’ pot core inductors, the ELITE SERIES’ HA-73 EQX2 DUAL MIC AMP/EQUALIZER’s EQ curves are almost indistinguishable from the handmade equalizers in Heritage Audio’s product line so customers can expect the same sonic quality and feel that they have come to appreciate from the company.
Cutting to the chase, then, the HA-73 EQX2 DUAL MIC AMP/EQUALIZER’s preamp section features gain, OUTPUT trim, -20dB PAD, polarity reverse, a high pass filter, and +48V phantom power while its EQ section features a high shelving EQ, midrange EQ, low shelving EQ, a variable high pass filter, and EQ bypass.
The HA-73 EQX2 DUAL MIC AMP/EQUALIZER itself is housed in a rugged, 2RU British steel and aluminium chassis and utilises an external power supply for facilitating low-noise operation. Come check it out on Booth 340 at AES New York 2018 — the 145th Audio Engineering Society International Convention — on October 17-19, Jacob J. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY, USA.
