    Neve Channel Amplifiers are designed to accept signals from microphone and line sources. Low noise and distortion and generous overload performance are important features of these amplifiers. These modules are the same as the original designs and contain all of the original components.

    The 1084 channel amps were used to provide the Mic/Line amp and EQ sections in classic Neve consoles such as the 8014, 8018, 8028, 8024, 8026 and also in the 5003 and 5004 broadcast consoles.

    1084 Channel Amplifiers
    Based on the same technology as the 1073s, the 1084s also deliver the unique sound and quality of Neve. The 1084s offer additional features including 3 switchable EQ bands with cut and boost, a high Q for presence and low pass/high pass filters.
