Warm Audio WA76

£579.00

The WA76 Discrete Compressor is a modern reproduction of the Classic 1176 Revision D.  The WA76 has a fully discrete signal path and uses the original Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer design. The classic 1176 was a major breakthrough in limiter technology, and used on hundreds of hit records since its inception.  Engineers have craved the ultra-fast attack time and trademark sound of the 1176 for decades, and now it is finally affordable!
