Probably a vintage Universal Audio or Neve compressor (if you can find one), or something like that. You're looking at some serious gear for that money. Maybe check out Avalon's preamps if you're looking for something a little more modern.

If you can find a UAD LA-2A, I'd be jealous. Probably one of my favorite compressors

My vote goes to the Empirical Labs EL-8 Distressor... does a lot of the stuff people love the 1176 for, then loads more, and then has saturation/distortion modelled on analogue tape machines thrown in for good measure Oh, and it has the 'nuke' ratio for limiting, which is essentially the same as when people pushed in all four ratio buttons of an 1176 for crazy results and non-linear compression lol.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
