What are the difference between the 500-series 1176`s and the "standard" ones (if comparing the same revisions)? I`m guessing that the 500-series ones might have a little less headroom due to the lower power used? Anything else?

Nope, gain is the same (45-50 dB depending on rev).  The rails are the exact same (+30V and a - bias rail), it's explained on the MNATS site.  Keep in mind +16 and -16 is still a 32V swing.

500 series have a slightly higher noise floor but we've only noticed it in measurement.  500 series does add the 2:1, true bypass and more responsive metering.

Oh I think we might be discontinuing the full sized and just stocking the 500 series.  I need to chat with Ed.

I wouldn't wait around for them.

Are you going to provide the needed potentiometers for the FET500s as separate parts?

Are the new 1176 PCBs exclusive to the FET/RACK kits, or can they be bought elsewhere? I got some cases already.   :-\

I can't speak for Hairball, but the new FET/RACK was designed as a whole rather than PCB + Case. Unless your case was designed specifically for the new FET/RACK boards they are unlikely to work correctly. Crucially, two of the three brackets at the back of the board are for chassis and signal ground while all three aid the structural integrity of the finished unit.
