Universal Audio 6176

The Universal Audio 6176 is a combination of the UA 1176 and UA 2-610 into a single powerful channel strip! Consequently, the 6176 utilizes the 610’s warm tube mic pre alongside the idiosyncratic compression characteristics of the 1176 to form a singularly powerful recording channel whose lineage and sonic impact throughout music history speak for themselves.
