The SA-76D Plus is an exact replica of a vintage UREI 1176 Rev D compressor, and is the most authentic and accurate reproduction of the iconic UREI 1176 Rev D available today.
With a fully discrete signal path following the original schematic and by using identical 0-12 and 50002 transformers we have managed to impart the original tone and character founds on these vintage compressors.
Unlike any other replica the SA-76D plus has a built in and selectable tube output circuit which is activated by pulling on the output knob. The tube output stage includes a 12AY7 valve and a Carnhill transformer that takes this compressor to the next level with a bigger low end and added harmonics.
Just like the ADG and ADF series the SA-76D plus has the super slow mod option on the attack knob which is ideal for compressing bass and kicks.
The SA-76D plus is made with premium components
We have gone to great lengths to faithfully reproduce the compression characteristics and tonality of the original.
The SA-76D Plus features a Sowter 1260 input transformer which is an identical replica of the original UTC O-12 (Ratio 1:1.58 200/500 Ohms) and two Sowter/Carnhill output transformers that precisely matches the ratio and frequency response of the original 5002 and a Carnhill output transformer.
We have made no compromise in parts such as Vishay capacitors, quality resistors and matched selected transistors to ensure you will get the best sounding unit without cutting any corners. All of the SA-76D plus are hand-made and calibrated in our workshop in Chile where they get a full quality check and 48-hour burn.

...two options in one. With the aid for Sowter input and output transformers, Vishay capacitors and following the original schematic the SA-76D plus sounds virtually identical to and old 1176 giving you same famous character and frequency response as the original at an affordable price. The added tube output stage imparts a unique coloration and...
...studio and makes for/my workflow more creative and for that I thank you! And im hearing good things about the SA-76D+ too. Hope they make a return at some point. )
I am thrilled to hear that!! It's all about adding colors, textures and giving end users multiple options while remaining faithful to the origins. The D plus is coming back with a revenge and a couple of other surprises this Thursday. We will announce on social media and newsletter as well!
I have built 1176 clones. I have purchased 1176 clones and this is the first time I've liked a unit better than my UA early serial # 1176D. I feel like the SA-76D+ is an improvement to an old design, but with a twist. The tube/Carnhill output stage adds depth and harmonics. The volume is seamless...
