blacklion 002 clock and mic pre mods?

Postby mfdu » Thu Sep 14, 2006 10:31 am

ok. so i dunno if you've heard about it, but blacklion offers a mod for the 002 preamps (ch. 1>4) and a clock upgrade which purportedly inproves timing to 10 picoseconds.

(remember black lion from the 3630 upgrades which made the unit usable?)

i am currently sourcing a parts pack and all info from the black lion posse.

next step will be to find a SMT-friendly repair dude (pref. in melbourne) who can take on the mods.

can anyone recommend anyone?

(oh - http://www.blacklionaudio.com/digi002_mod.html - that might help)

do make sure you find some who can so this job properly.

I've heard of a guy here in Adelaide who got the kit and installed it himself.

Now he has a door stop.

wel, blacklion advised me that they now don't actually supply the parts in kit form - they only do the mod as fitted by themselves.

they said the best thing i could do was remove the boards from inside the 002 and ship them over the pond to the US of A.

i think not, tinky winky.

scrap that plan, move along. nothing to see here.

Hey Chris

I got the same story with my MOTU 828.

My impression is that the guy runs Black Lion as a second job, is big on ideals and wants to help, but is just not set up to really do anything more than local North America. A lesson in managing customer expectations.
