Suprised to see this.  Is this not an infringement of copyright etc.

How is it more of an infringement than the Warm Audio, Purple, Hairball, etc., etc.?

Klark Teknik is now a brand of the music group universum. Music group = Behringer, so this is no surprise!

Phil and Terry Clarke must be terribly sorry to see their brand, that was often so innovative, now used on blatant rip-offs. I'm curious to see if the Music Group, following their old habits, have also ripped off the brochure...

"...every effort was made to keep the 1176-KT FET-Style Compressor true to the original D and E versions of the iconic signal processor. At the same time, we modernised the completely discrete signal path..." - a quote from their website
So they turned left and right at the same time. Stunning!

Has anyone modded this with i/o trafos? How does it look like inside?

not sure if this makes much sense. it won't change anything about the compression characteristics of this device which differs a lot from the original 1176 in my opinion.

Small PCB with lots of SMD components.
In fact, it isn't a really bad compressor for the price...
To my surprise the gain reduction meter doesn't drift as much with temperature changes as the original 1176.
Also the correct amount of gain reduction is displayed.
I bought two of them...
There is a solution for every problem!

Come on, engineers don't write the marketing blurbs.

Modernizing can include turning discrete components into SMD, though, which is probably what they meant.
