Great box. The combination of the 1066 and 1073 eq with extra bands is fantastic. A really useful combination, and different than a 1081. I have two vintage Neve 1073 and also used to work at a studio with a Neve console loaded with 1081 for a few years. While there are still some differences in the sound of the preamp vs. an original unit, overall this is the closest new version that I've used. Much closer than a Vintech or a BAE to my ears. The main difference seemed to be with distorted electric guitars, where the vintage unit seemed to be a bit smoother and saturated a little more perhaps. This could just be due to older caps, who knows. Would be great if they added a Q switch a la 1084 or 1081, and maybe a few new lower bands to the 1066 section to take it to the next level, but at this price it's already a great improvement on a 1073 eq section. Really cool useful eq that is pretty unique yet familiar at the same time.
