The last of Neve’s 80-series hand-wired analog mixing consoles, the Neve 8078 was designed and manufactured by Neve Electronics was founded in 1961 by the English electronics engineer Rupert Neve. The 8078 was engineered for high-end recording studios during the 1970s and due to their cost, few were made. A limited number were custom built for major studios like CBS Sony.

The remaining 8078s are rare and valuable. The few studios with 8078 consoles working perfectly are in high demand and command super-premium session rates.
