Warm Audio WA76 Limiting Amplifier

  • R 10,700.00

The WA76 Discrete Compressor is a modern reproduction of the Classic '76 Revision D.  The WA76 has a fully discrete signal path and uses the original Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer design. The classic '76 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 '76 for decades, and now it is finally affordable!
