I absolutely love it. It's my first hardware 1176 so I can't compare it to any other real box but I can tell you I like it a lot more than any plug-in compressor that I've ever used.
It has a dead spot on the output trimmer that is covered by warranty but I haven't been willing to send it back for repair 'cause I've been using it so much. The dead spot is high up (at 6 on the dial) so it's not really in a spot that I ever touch anyway.
It did something for a very aggressive female vocal that none of my UAD or digi compressors could do, for what that's worth.
I see the price has gone up a tad since I bought mine.
