What is the best choice for 2 channel Neve 1073, 1084, 1081?

I definitely need the eq so which one of these is best? Also if I settle on a 1073 or 1084, are the BAE versions better than AMS Neve?

I would suggest that you pick up an AMS-Neve 1081 Stereo. Mucho dinnero, I know, but this is a helluva thing.

You can use on just about anything, just give it a listen before you fork out the greens.

The 1073 and 1084 are virtually the same, the 1084 has some extra features that the 1073 does not have= extra frequencies on the high band, and also a midrange Q switch, and both hi & low pass filters. The mic preamp is identical on both these units.

The 1081 on the other hand uses a different preamp to to what is used in the 1073/1084. Its also has a 4 band EQ, not a 3 band like the 1073/1084.

Personally i prefer the sound of the 1073/1084 because its more beefy. I have got very good ressults on vocals with the 1081 before though.

The BAE 1023 is probably the best "in the middle of all of them" unit out there.

As always, YMMV. [Mine doesn't, yours might].
