    Started thinking about the various Neve 1073 inspired preamps out there and decided to start a list to compare. Now, I guess any transformer-based preamp is "inspired" by the 1073, but I just started a list of current production models available in the US that have some direct connection to the 1073. In the notes, "clone eq" means an eq that closely resembles the 1073.

    What am I missing? I know there are a lot of people out there who have these. Any comments?
