Neve without the mushy bottom and with a more detailed sound instead of the hazy midrange
"Rupert Neve didn't exactly design the Neve console. He hired a team of engineers to design all of the different modules that made up the famous mixing desks. One of those engineers and one of the world's leading authorities on what makes a real Neve sound like a real Neve is Geoff Tanner. Aurora Audio is Tanner's company and he hand builds new gear that perfects the original Neve designs."
