A friend of mine just picked upcan 1178 and came to my studio for testing and calibrating...
I've been reading several times that 1178 didn't have input transformer but ampli op.
Well, i might be wrong but this really looks like transformers:




Well the two big red thing really look like?
The bad point is that they are tawain made. do you think it could be possible to have a LL1540 instead?

Looks to me those are output transformers. The missing transformers in the 1178 AFAIK are on the input section which UREI replaced with an differential IC based input section... see those little chips?

A cool sounding compressor. Pumpy.

Put the cover back on and screw wires onto the back of it. ;)

Or call Jim Williams of Audio Upgrades.

Or do a search on one of the DIY forums.

Bur seriously the first suggestion would be my primary one!
