If you like your EQ vintage and hardware-based, you're going to find lots to like in Heritage Audio's new Elite Series Preamp & Preamp EQ

Hardware manufacturers Heritage Audio took time out at NAMM 2018 to show us their new Elite Series Preamp & Preamp EQ modules. Watch the video below to find out everything you need to know about this specialised studio hardware. 

The ELITE series leverages the expertise gleaned from years of making acclaimed vintage-inspired equipment. For the HA73EQ ELITE, Heritage Audio set its target high: their own widely respected, hand-wired HA73jr and DMA73 preamps — themselves based on the most iconic vintage console preamp/EQ module in history, the 1073.
