MC 77 or 1176

I know the MC 77 has been discussed at length here, but I have one simple question:

Bling-factor and price/value asside, what would you rather own/use.... a blackface 1176 or a Purple Audio MC 77?

I have used both. I own the mc77. It has been the single greatest investment for the quality of my productions.

don't hesitate, get the purple!

I have both. The Purple sounds a tad cleaner so that usually ends up on vocals while my 1176 Rev D adds a little growl to bass or brings out the smack of the snare. They are very close in character since recapping the 1176 but the UREI does have a bit more "je ne sais quoi" (that's French for "indescribable mojo or vibe")
