The BSS DPR-404 is one of my favorite compressors for live sound...with second place going to the Klark Teknik DN-504.

I like the dbx160. You can get them used at about 200$.
Although they need a lot of rackspace, IMO they are the most versatile and fastest to set up comps for live aplication.
Very good especially on kick, snare, bass, vox and subgroup compression. Only for guitars look for somthing different, cause the lack of attack/release.

have to go with those two as well...except in the opposite order. the bss piece is auto attack/release (still great sounding) , but the KT is a fully functioning quad(and equally great sounding). i guess the de-esser on the bss works pretty decent for vox. one feature i really love about the KT is the "hard" button. this little feature can pull a sound (especially lead vox) to the front of the mix like nothing else i've ever used. i mix a lot of vocal heavy stuff where the lead vox is always changing from song to song. i just use the hard button to pull out the lead vox of the moment or set a voice in the background by disengaging the hard button. oh, and it sounds amazing in either setting on just about anything. majic.

cheers,

Thanks for the replies everyone...
Any idea of how much it costs for a used KT DN-504?
