Category: Tags: ,

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.

    I’ve tried so many clones against my UA 1176D and this SA-76D+ sounds better! It packs a few extra features that make this compressor more versatile.
    The tube output stage adds 3D and harmonics. The SLO feature on this unit is very useful especially on a bass guitar and synth strings and pads. The SA-76D+ just sounds expensive compared to other unit I’ve tried. I really like the direction Stam Audio is going with their additional tweaks to the classics. This unit makes everything sound nicer just by passing through the circuit.

    We’ve been in the recording industry since 1987. We have 2 Neve consoles. Great classic microphones and outboard gear everywhere. We have an original 1176 Rev F and when I unboxed the Stam 1176 D+, patched it in and listened I was almost in tears. This thing is for real and I didn’t miss the original 1176 at all. This Stam version will be busy at work in any rack: and the tube circuit was another beautiful option. We were so blown away we immediately ordered an additional unit. Thanks Stam!!! It was worth the wait.
