Modification Services for Lucid ADA8824
The ADA8824 is a workhorse converter for its time and is long been a classic for audio profesionals, but leaves a little to be desired in the audio realm mostly in terms of overall musical performance.
Like most of the Lucid Line, the 8824 was originally designed for utility purposes across broadcast applications but was also used in some studio facilities and has recently found its way into the hands of Music professionals and project studios all around the world.
On the Lucid 8824 we offer two different tiers of modifications with our Gold and Platinum Modification Packages.
Both package options include free return shipping.

Once your purchase is complete you will be contacted with Mailing instructions, Work Order# and Work Order form for our mail in service.
Includes a full analog path modification plus power supply modification: $350
Includes our “Time Square Master Clock” upgrade and converter de-coupling modifications
plus full analog path upgrade:$550.
Gold Modification Packages.
Both services offer a full Analog path modification for all eight channels using high performance Burr Brown Amplifiers, input de-coupling, power supply of modifications, phase correction of the design as well as proper +4db output modifications.
On the output sections we use a combination of amplifiers and other modification techniques to provide a very flat response without sounding Brittle, which is precise enough for ciritical mastering.
The analog mods on these interfaces offer a wonderfully warm front end comparable to Apogee interfaces, coupled with a very flat response output section for a precise representation of your mix, making great mixes easier.
Platinum Modification Packages.
The Platinum package takes the modifications further by offering converter De-coupling and coupling techniques for an even broader and more accurate image of the audio from the converters.
Also included is our Time Square Clock upgrade for an Ultra low PPM, Phase and Jitter Master clock section that can also clock external devices via BNC at the output and is second to none.
Of all of the clocks we have heard we havent heard a single better one out there and at a fraction of the cost.
Then finally we perform a power supply modification for maximum bandwidth and headroom. The converters with the modifications sound excellent and easily as good as interfaces costing twice as much.
Compare our cost to our competitors and read the reviews!
Classic units, excellent sound!
With the modifications we get a lot more bandwidth, lower noise, cleaner and larger audio with a lot more headroom.
The modifications really help to see inside the mix with excellent detail.
Overall musicality is improved significantly in both packages and the audio image becomes clearer, smoother and well defined just like you would expect from a Revive Audio modified piece.
