• New, high-performance op-amps and electrolytic capacitors on ALL analog signal pathways (from the mic preamps to the mix outputs - everything gets upgraded). We also install IC sockets for easy, solder-free replacement of op-amps in the future.

  • Additional decoupling on all major ICs to reduce crosstalk, and suppression capacitors to filter out unwanted high-frequency oscillations that eat up headroom

  • New, corrosion-resistant Neutrik gold-plated jacks on all inserts & headphone jack

  • LED arrays installed in VU meters to replace incandescent bulbs (multiple colors available)

  • Optional Trident 80B-esque EQ mods available for Input Modules

  • Additional mods such as transformers on mic preamps available upon request

  • All modules additionally receive full refurbishments to restore them to “like-new” condition and strengthen all mechanical components connections to the PCB - learn more about our restoration process here 

  • Our proprietary modifications introduce major improvements to the analog signal pathways by increasing headroom, lowering noise-floor, improving THD+Noise specs, improving low and low-midrange response, widening stereo field, as well as improving phase response for faster/tighter transients. You’ll find your console sounding incredibly transparent with more punch, clarity, and definition in your mixes. It really is a "day and night" difference
