The 2-1176 features two channels of the Class A circuitry, custom designed output transformers, and FET-type gain reduction from the original 1176LN - all stereo matched for improved stereo imaging. The unique sound and stereo capabilities of the 2-1176 have beckoned a wide range of artists and engineers - from Norah Jones with Jay Newland to Helmet with Charlie Clouser - to call on its services while recording their albums. With switchable options of “Link” mode for stereo compression, or “Dual” mono mode, the 2-1176 offers twice the character and twice the features of the original in one unit. Includes the classic “All” buttons mode.

Finally, a true stereo 1176! With over 2000 units already sold to date since the year 2000 re-birth of Universal Audio's 1176LN, it is clear the public's love affair with the legendary sound of the 1176 is still as passionate as ever.

The 2-1176 builds from the circuit design of UA's hugely successful 6176 Channel Strip and combines two 1176 channels from that unit - an uncompromising design, with all the same components - stereo matched to boot!
