best outboard compressor combo?

Hello Everybody! I just recently got a 1176 compressor for vocals and wanted to know another good vocal compressor that will compliment the 1176. I do alot of pop, dance and hip hop music. I also have a 500 series rack but I dont mind getting a rackmount too. Thank you

1176 followed by la2a is an often used combo

basically shaving off a few dbs with fast attack followed by leveling with a slow attack

the idea is that the slower one can dig deeper without freaking out because of hi/uncontrolled peaks.

my leveling-compressor is a retro STA. if necessary i prep the signal ITB before that. sometimes UAD limiter, UAD 1176blue, brainworx ...

Working on something right now with an 1176 into a distressor. Sounds really great. Tried an la2a/ 1176 combo but, everyone seems to prefer the 1176/ distressor. For this project we've used that combo with a sm7, m269, and a u47 and it's worked with all.
