Perhaps this is old news, but I had this idea and started poking around.
Check these two pics out (if the copy paste works...)

Top is an ACMP something-or-other. (73 I think)
Bottom is the Golden Age 73 pre.
Looks a lot like an ACMP without the EQ and with an external power supply.
Other products in the line follow as you might think.

Hi, Chance!
Yep, that looks pretty clear.
I had wondered about that and started poking around for these under the hood photos.
There you go.

I have 4 of the GAP 2254 clones, the switches feel identical to the T-n-C stuff..

Of course they are both ripping off the same circuit, so there *should* be some resemblance...

I do.. they sound fantastic. 

I do, however, HATE the fact that I need 4 line lumps to power them, they DO make a rack mount xfmr that powers 4 units.. but I just stuffed all the  line lumps into a box on top of the rack.

When compared to my Chandler LTD ("wrong" Neve clones) I preferred them, and when I measured them they were perhaps slightly higher in 3rd harmonic (maybe the transformer material is a bit less pure, but so were the 1970s era Neves compared to what's available now from Sowter, etc), but this is a good thing.

I don't use much compression form them typically, only a dB or two max, but they do add that Neve "warm clarity"
