Product Description for the Warm Audio WA76

The WA76 Limiting Amplifier is a modern reproduction of the Classic 1176 Revision D.  Every effort was made to remain faithful to the original designs including the use of Reichenbach Engineering’s (now CineMag) transformer design that was originally used.  The classic 1176 was a major breakthrough in limiter technology — the first true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry offering superior performance with a signature sound — and set the standard for all limiters to follow. The ultra-fast attack time and trademark sound have lured legendary artists and studio moguls alike to the 1176 — Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Joe Chiccarelli, Vance Powell, and Mike Elizondo are just a few names on a list that’s continued to grow, for nearly 50 years.

I am asked often how Warm Audio is able to produce such high quality gear at affordable prices.  Many assume we must be cutting corners on the designs themselves but my answer to this question continues to be “NO”.  Warm Audio stays true to original discrete schematics and does this without cheapening components such as our continued use of world class Reichenbach/CineMag transformers.
