Lives for gear
I hear you on being disappointed with the WA76. I do think a good 1176 clone has its place though. Maybe a rev D and a Rev A. Since the D is cleaner its nice if you don't want to have the aggressive sound of the rev A all the time. A 1176 should open up the sound and give some harmonic content and weight. Seems like the WA's are bad? I had their pultecs and although they where nice, and felt sturdy. They too was a bit lofi and grainy. Sounded better in bypass to be honest

I really like my Cl1b. Very transparent, just the best dynamic controller I've used.

La3a are nice too, but not really worth it. If they where like 1k a piece but noway I'm paying 2k for one unit!
