Hi all,

i just demoed UA 1073. I was blown away! I never heard a plug in sound like that. Before to swipe my card though, i was wondering if i should hold my money for the forthcoming 1081. I heard somewhere that is a five band plug in instead of 3, but that's all i know..
Anyone can help?

People like different things. For example, I don't need the space echo at all. :roll:

You kidding right? I've compared the UA neve against all the hi end plug i own such as URS EQs, waves ssl 4000, Sony EQ Powercore.. and even against UA pulteq. To my hears there just no comparison at all. I believe that UA must to pass some kind of AMS quality control before they put the plug in on the market.. Like waves w/ the ssl 4000.

Some people like being antagonistic. LOL. I have the Neve and the Waves SSL.

They make the URS stuff sound like a waste of my hard earned money.

IMO the urs s-series eq is the only urs eq which can actually compete with the waves ssl, uad neve 1073 and sony oxford eq. Of course all of these eq's are different and especially the sony oxford is in it's own class due to it's features. Anyway, I decided to purchase the urs s-series eq because it doesn't need cpu almost at all and it sounds smooth with right q-settings. The rest of the urs eq's sound mostly harsh.
