    £12,000 for two channels of EQ?

    Now, call me old fashioned, or tight fisted, but is paying nearly £12,000 for a NEVE eq just a tad silly...

    Neve vs Vintech

    I ran into an old engineer friend last night at a gig, he had just returned from doing some tracking work at a studio in Florida, and of course, the talk eventually got around to gear... in particular, to preamps. He mentioned that on the latest project he was working on, that he had used...

    Neve VR 60 EQ section Q

    Hi all. It's been quite a while since I was behind a VR - can someone set me straight on the EQ section? IIRC, the freqs (bands) are: 33 - 370 190 - 2k 800 - 8.7k 1.5 - 17 I was hoping that someone who knows better than I can either confirm that, or set me straight. Don't worry about the Q...

    Neve 33609 power Q

    I have an original 33609/C on the way. It's coming from the UK to me (USA). Most likely, the voltage selector switch will be at 220 (or 240?); I will set that to 120. The question I have is in regards to the fuses - the main fuse and the secondary. Do I need to change either of those? Thanks...

    Thoughts on Neve 55 series Braodcast console for tracking and summing.

    I'm looking at a 42 channel Neve for my studio,price is very reasonable for a Neve.I realize this console is designed for broadcast.Having no automation means it's crippled in a mixdown situation,but is there a possibility of adding Necam,or Flying faders?Hows the mix bus?How do the pres and EQs...

    Rupert Neve Designs 542 Tape Emulator

    Well, not really emulation. Apparently there is a small loop of tape and an actual record and playback head in this thing. So, it's like a small tape saturator. Interesting. At first I thought "this is very cool". Then I thought, at $750 each I could probably by an actual 16 track ATR for the...
