Overview

Introducing Black Lion Audio’s own 1073-style microphone preamp, the B173. Don’t let the price tag fool you. This is not only a serious contender for the most “bang for your buck” preamp in existence, but sonically stands on its own at any price point. Black Lion's goal was to capture the essence of the original 1073 at a price anyone can afford, and we’re proud to say that we’ve accomplished our goal!
