Kenetek 588 fet peak limiter

I've heard so many good things about the Kenetek 1176 and how much of a tone beast it is around these parts, as well as how it blows the ua 1176's out the water......I was snooping around on the Kenetek website this morning and saw the Kenetek 588 fet peak limiter, which according to the unit's discription is a replica of the 1176's sound, with exception of one of the transformers.....I think......dont quote me...and also......with the exception of it being a half rack unit.....for $1199.00.......I searched and didnt find one post about its existence on the forums......Is this unit new or something?Does anybody have any experience with it?If it's the 1176 sound coming from a company that most say has the best replica's it could be worth looking into...especially that Im in Kentucky where Kenetek is located....Thoughts????

this is no "half rack size".
its a 19", 1HU, half the size of an original 1176.
as far as i can tell from the info provided on their website, this should be a fully fledged 1176, incl. transformers in & out.
price seems a little bit high though.
