Today, the 1176LN is new again. While it certainly would have been possible and much simpler to modernise and improve the 1176LN, every effort was made to remain faithful to Putnam's design and intentions. Carefully trained staff hand-wire and test each unit until it meets the uncompromising Universal Audio standards, this Universal Audio Classic version of the 1176LN captures all the nuance of the original through obsessive attention to detail and delivers that trademark sound. Demand the original. Accept no copies.
"For my past two albums I've had the UA 1176 in my vocal chain and now it's a mainstay. I know every studio performance I give is going to be intimate and authentic... I know my listeners are going to get the best vocal quality possible."
- Jason Mraz
"UA's new 1176LN sounds exactly like th eones I've used on every record I've done over thelast 30 years."
- Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones)
"The Universal Audio reincarnation of the 1176 is every bit as good as the original.
- Hugh Robjohns, Sound on Sound
