I stand corrected (as usual)!  If it's not Cinemag, however, I do believe wherever they are sourcing there xformers from has to do with the differences in how the UA 1176 and LA-2A sounds.  Most definitely the new LA-2A.  I put some UTC A10 and A24s on my ADL compressors and they do really have a specific sound.

I prefer the MC76 to the original 1176, and I would think it would be the better compliment to an API rig, firstly.

Tight.

Although I WILL say that for an "1176-like compressor" I'd go for the Daking everytime.

Try a Daking as well.

The Distressor is realy a completely different animal.

Purple and Daking = discrete.  

Distressor = not.

Just in case you're one of those "ICs kill music" people.
