BLACK LION AUDIO Seventeen £750

A classic piece of studio design is brought kicking and screaming into the 21st century. How has Black Lion Audio achieved this astonishing feat?

With so many new outboard units being copies (or ‘reimaginings’) of classic vintage hardware, I immediately know what I’m in for when I see any of the numbers ’73, ’47 or ’76 in the name of a new product. But when I was asked to test Black Lion Audio’s new Seventeen compressor, I didn’t put two and two together at first. As soon as I set eyes upon the unit though, I knew immediately that I was dealing with something based upon the legendary UREI 1176 compressor/limiter.

HEAVEN SEVENTEEN?

The Seventeen isn’t an all-out replication of the 1176, like Warm Audio’s WA76 for example, as it boasts several useful features not found on originals or clones. On its website, Black Lion Audio makes this clear: “The Seventeen is not the ’76 compressor that your grandfather recorded with. It isn’t even a remake, but rather the Black Lion spin on what the ’76 should have been.”
