Modification Sound Samples and Comparisons

Our goal with these sample clips is to help illustrate just how our modifications can improve the audio path of your gear. While we may not have clips for every modification that we offer, we believe that the clips below speak for themselves. Even if you don't see clips for the specific piece of gear that you are interested in you can expect similar results. Have a listen and follow your ears!

*Audio samples are provided to illustrate the before and after modification to show the character and improvements of one particular modification service. These samples are not intended to provide a basis of comparison between different models, as they are captured at different times and often using different methods of capture.

Revive Audio Modified Behringer ADA8000

Bronze Radio Return: 'Mister, Mister'(Source)

These samples were captured using a Motu 896HD with the sample playing directly through the ADA8000 outputs. You will hear that the stock ADA8000 causes a significant loss in dynamic range and bandwidth. With our modifications the ADA8000 will output audio that is much closer the original audio. We perform the same upgrades to the inputs so the same increase in range can be expected on the inputs as well.
