very interesting, to say the least, im pretty curious to hear the end result, after a year or two the v3 adc was deef getting fatiguing, especially with the 480's, so i added a modsbm1 for ahile a the adc :)

pretty solid idead doug

what he REALLY needs to do is mod a v2, or make a small box/adc box to easily mod a v2 to have a killer adc on the doug-low :). maybe like a small project box that wou could easily plug into the out xlr's on the v2 and out of the way to do the adc. call it the doug designs lunatic m142 :)

Hmm.  Hard to imagine Grace would be cool with this.  I assume they are?  I guess you don't need permission to mod stuff though so it's mute I guess.  Wonder about the warranties though.  Seems like a cool idea as long as he doesn't touch those beautiful pre's.   ;D

Well to be honest I sent my V3 to Grace first for the polarity fix and a tune-up.  They sent it directly to Doug for me.  It was gone a total of 11 days and came back screaming for me to use.  I was open about what I was having done to it and got a positive response from Grace.  At no time did I ask about my warranty with them. Anything is possible but they are a first class company and it doesn't worry me especially for just being in for work.  Also I know Doug would take care of me if something did go wrong.  With the tuneup and polarity fix my Grace warranty just started a new 5 year warranty.

Doug does not touch the preamp of the V3.  He knows it's the best.   8)

Should this be called the ADC Mod V3? I believe all of the ACM's are mods of a preamp.

Nice, glad to see Doug is back on the workbench. As cool as it sounds why bother adding a CF card to it, he has already done the one box route. This is just another flavor, I am sure it rocks.
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

thanks for posting that Yonder show, I'm downloading it now.
here's the source:
AKG 483 > Bumblebee MiAGi II XLRs > ACM V3 > R4

ok, so the V3 mod is only on the A/D, so, obviously for this show you went digital into the R4.  now, the regular R4 resamples all digital inputs, correct? (it is my understanding that the pro-R4 does not resample the digital inputs).  so, am I missing something here?  while I'm definitely interested in hearing this recording, as well as many other ACM V3 recordings still to come, for really critical listening, wouldn't it be best to not have it resampled, and listen to the data exactly as it was outputted by the V3?

thanks,
Jason

just when i thought doug wouldn't be able to top the sound of the acm671 he pulls this out of his bag of tricks.

looks like i'll have a t+ and w+ ua5 for sale around june. 
Let me know when you want to pass along that WMod+ this spring...  I miss mine already...

Terry
to be honest terry, i'm 100% satisfied with my acm 671 as my "go to" rig and am betting you'll dig the acm hd-p2 when you get it.  i dunno how it sounds compared to an acm671, some have said there is a noticeable difference between the two, but i bet it's a strong all in one regardless.

when i want a different sound i just toss the psp2 in front of the 671 and i think it sounds great as well.  as for the ua5's, i'll probably keep the t+ and eventually sell the w+ since i don't need all these multiple preamps around.

With the PSP-2, you should have all that wonderful transformer warmth that you need ;)

fwiw..
Doug can take a joke w/the best of them.  I think he is youngest of the brothers Oade, so he's used to being on the receiving end, i'm sure.
