Warm Audio WA76 overview

  • 1Description

The WA76 from Warm Audio is a modern reproduction of the 1176 revision D limiting amplifier. With its completely discrete signal path and use of the original Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer design, the unit remains as faithful as possible to the construction of the original classic.

The 1176 was a major breakthrough in limiter technology, being the first true peak limiter with an all transistor circuitry while offering superior performance and a signature sound. The ultra-fast attack time was and still is a sound coveted by many legendary artists and studio engineers. This reproduction includes the famous "all buttons in" setting.

True to the classic 1176 compressor in design and performance
Completely discrete signal path
Modeled after the D revision
Utilizes USA made CineMag input and output transformers
Supports "all buttons in" ratio setting

    Warm Audio WA76 reviews

    WA76 - Discrete FET Compressor is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WA76 replica of vintage 1176 D The WA76 is not supposed to sound exactly like the modern UA 1176LN as another review has highlighted. The WA76 is an exact replica of the Urei 1176 revision D that was produced in the early 1970s. The current UA 117LN is an amalgamation of revisions C, D, & E. These revisions have minor differences in circuitry dealing with low noise and distortion. The WA76 and UA 1176LN are essentially the same beast, but since they are produced with slightly different circuitry designs, one will hear very subtle sonic variations between the two. Which one you like more is a matter of preference.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not an 1176 It is not an 1176. It sounds a bit different, but it's great.
