    Please help!!! Can anyone clear up the sonic differences between these two compressors? The 160A seems to go for a lot more $$$, yet the 166A has limiter and gate, plus it's got an additional channel as well. Is the 160A really that much better of a compressor?

    Thanks for all of your help!
