Klark teknik 76KT
« on: September 22, 2020, 03:32:53 PM »
I noticed the 76KT comes in at an amazing 225 euros from Thomann ,
Ive always been a big fan of the original 1176 ,
I was wondering if anyone here has tried the Klark Teknik and what they think about it .
I know the original unit can be used in stereo with an interface box added on ,
has anyone attempted to stereoize the KT units?   for the sake of the handful of extra components KT would have done well to include the stereo mod ,

I watched a few reviews and it seems to do what it says on the tin , some like it some dont ,but thats always the way .

I’m curious what you mean by “the original can be used in stereo.”  It’s a mono compressor.  The stereo adapter that UA sells is meant to facilitate the linking of two separate mono units — the adapter is intended to overcome the fact that any two given units are unlikely to have closely matched FETs to one another.  Purple Audio’s version of the 1176 solved this problem in a different way, by implementing an active link that eliminates the need for the adapter.

Whichever option the KT uses (I don’t know, but I’d guess the former), it is still a mono unit, and you’d still need to link two together for stereo operation.  There’s not a “stereo mod” that I know of that would turn a single mono unit into two-channel stereo.  Unless the “mod” is building in an entire second channel.   ;D

I own a 76KT, it has no connection to get a stereo pair, so, is the question: is it possible to mod the unit to do it ?

Oh, wow, it doesn’t have a link option at all?  That does seem strange...wonder why.
