Well..

The 473 is an X73 except the EQ's are scaled back. So you have less EQ manipulation but having four pre's does have it's advantages.

I would go for the 473. I think having the pres is worth more than tons of EQ and one channel.

Best of luck.

The 473 is a better value per channel, since you're not paying for four separate chassis or power supplies.  If you can live with the less flexible eq, it's a good deal.  

Of course, if the 473 needs repair on one channel, the whole thing has to go back.  Not so with four X73's.  This is something to consider; if it ever needs to be sent in for repair, can you afford to lose four channels of preamps for a while?
