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.
