What looks like a most excellent new pre...

Very Cool!!!!!


Universal Audio Debuts 6176 Channel Strip

Combines the 2-610 Microphone preamp and 1176 compressor

October 6, 2002

Universal Audio, manufacturer vintage audio reproductions and DSP powered plug-ins debuted their new 6176 channel strip to attendees of the Audio Engineering Society Convention in Los Angeles. The 6176 combines Universal Audio's two most successful products-the 2-610 microphone/instrument preamplifier and the 1176LN compressor-into a single "channel strip" product.

The 6176 features several improvements over the standalone 2-610 mic preamp and 1176LN compressor. "While we're known primarily for painstaking reproductions of vintage gear," said Universal Audio Chief Analog Designer, John Hinson, "with the 6176 we allowed ourselves to add new features and take advantage of components with superior specs over the originals. For example, the mic preamp now features a 15db pad and a beefed-up power supply that tightens up the bass. The compressor section still has the twenty micro-second attack time and program dependency of the original 1176, but it is much quieter. Vintage character with modern specs is what we were going for and I think we've hit it. It's the best of both worlds."

The 6176, a single, horizontal rackmount unit, has a suggested US retail price of $2,495 and will begin shipping in the fourth quarter of 2002.

From the description it looks like they took some liberty's with the "76" half of the unit... wonder how close it's really gonna be to the 1176. If it street's for around 2 G's it may be one helluva deal considering you can access each section individually as well as 'in line'.

As long as the street is around 2k it seems like a good deal. Since 1176's normally sell around 1600 you're picking up a decent pre for $400. Seems cool.

They could have called this "The American"

1176 worship is strongest there!

It looks to be very cool indeed.

Is there no end to tempting gear?

Personally I don't see the point in having an "almost 1176" put in such a package. (I don't know why but I can't seem to find a good reason to want to "tweak" the design of the 1176... And if you really want an 1176 updated with a better psu, just buy a Purple and go on with it!)
Give me my 1176 and I'll use it with whatever mic pre I see fit! rollz yuktyy
