Cue some snobby, upturned noses cause it’s Warm in 3...2...
Some of the best recordings I've ever done were recorded through Warm pre's. It aint the arrow, it's the Indian.

I really do wish one of these affordable brands would have attempted the 1084 instead of the 1073. The 1084 EQ is so much more versatile. These look really nice though.
If you take another look you will see they've actually included a 1084 high shelving style EQ with 10khz, 12khz and 16khz frequencies.
You are correct..... now they have my interest. I'm curious to hear what people say about them and how they compare to a few other brands, but this is nice. Could also get one upgraded if you wanted to get a little closer to the Neve sound.
There's nothing to change or upgrade. Maybe a mariner for a carnhill but at that point you might as well change them in your vintech, heritage, aml, etc... Looks really nice at any rate. I'm sure I'll get one. Or three.
Would love to know prices. If I had my guess, I bet it's going to be a little higher than Heritage.
If you're right on that John, I think it's a no brainer for the Heritage. The only reason to go Warm would be the optional HF points on the EQ version. Heritage has got this thing right from what I've heard of their hand wired units.
BTW, kind of freaky how close these look and are priced to each other, the form factors, and the release dates, etc.. Must have been quite the horse race to the finish line.....
