Classic Compression - now affordable.

WA76 FET Limiter

The WA76 Limiting Amplifier is a modern reproduction of the Classic 1176 Revision D.

Valiant effort has been made to remain faithful to the original designs including the use of Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer designs that were used in the original. 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.


WA-2A Optical Tube Compressor

True to its inspiration; the WA-2A boasts an all tube, completely discrete signal path with through-hole component topology. It also features custom, large-core Cinemag input and output transformers, four premium vacuum tubes, and the legendary Kenetek opto-cell, considered by many to be the world's finest.

No plug-in or other compressor type quite compares to the warm, forgiving, fluid qualities of this classic optical tube compressor. For decades, the renowned 2A type circuit has become the go-to device for seamlessly handling vocals, bass, and a wide variety of other instruments and program material in an effortlessly smooth way.
