Leaving other channel strips suffering inferiority complexes, 6176 combines 610B tube mic pre with the legendary 1176LN limiting amplifier.

The 610B pre is detailed and has powerful hi & low EQ sections and 1176LN may well be the most loved compressor in history.

Its trademark lightning-quick attack and release times and the tone of its Class A output amplifier have stamped themselves on countless records.
