This comes from the personal studio of the owner of Dangerous Music.  It has been fully serviced by one of the finest technical teams in the industry, and performs at or beyond the original factory specifications.   The Neumann U473 design was developed in Germany in the 1970’s and was the main limiter for vinyl disc cutting from the late 1970’s and on. It is built around a vca design with compressor/limiter/expander functions which can be controlled independently from each other.  The only difference between the U473 and the U473A is the U473A is fitted with a de-ess/lin switch where the U473 has a mono/stereo switch. The sound of the U473 U473a is often described as transparent and open while still giving providing vintage character to the signal. Perfect for gluing the mix together, outstanding on groups, stems and mixbusses. Features:
