We are now offering a Basic MOD that lowers the noise in the XLR mic preamp, a Concert MOD that increases detail and clarity as well as an FET MOD that has low noise and distortion along with an impressive 3D soundstage ! All our DR100 upgrades also increase gain by 5dB and only improves the XLR signal path.
The Basic MOD replaces the preamp chip with a lower noise one that reduces hiss in the preamp while increasing gain.
The Concert MOD upgrade improves both line level and mic level signals when the XLR inputs are used, this makes the Concert MOD very well suited for use with line level sources, like an external preamp.
The FET MOD upgrade rebuilds the XLR inputs using a very high speed, very low noise and low distortion FET op amp that dramatically improves low level detail. The warmth of the FET microphone preamp allows for a more natural vocal tone when using highly directional mics, like a shotgun mic. The FET upgrade also produces an impressive 3D stereo image.
Now available, pricing is on our Upgrades page.
