Yep got a return number already and will be sending it in...............

Speaking of Grace.  They asked me if I was interested in a USB hook up for my V3?  Here is what they had to say about that.....

We would basically take the USB card out of the m903 and mount on the
side panel of the V3, no need to remove anything. It would only be a 2
channel input device, no output as there are no DA converters. Won't be
able to power the V3 either, so it's just functioning as a soundcard.
We're messing around with the idea since we think it would be pretty
easy to do, so I was just curious to see if people are interested in
such a mod.


The reference to removing anything was because I asked if I would lose anything like an AES output or wordclock output. 
I told them That my USBPre-2 did both A/D & D/A along with headpones etc.  I also said that there would probably be people who would love to see a portable 4 channel preamp that you could name the  V4 for instance and I got this reply.....

Yea, that's mainly why we don't make the V3 anymore is because you can
get 4-8 channel portable recorders with bus power and all that good
stuff. There was a V3 successor in development, but it never came to be.
I think there is still the possibility for a V4 in the future...


Who knows what could happen!

And once again, Grace provided a loaner to help me though a gig.  Also had a chance to talk with them on the phone for awhile.  Found out that one of the reasons they discontinued the V3 was it cost too much to produce anymore.  They are considering a 4 channel preamp, but the market has been moving away from external preamps.  After we had hung up the phone I was kicking myself for not asking about something that recorded also.  They also have  a mod done on the loaner deck they sent me.  It has a line/mic switch on the side.  Similar location to where they mount the M/S switch.  they charge $200 for the job, if you are interested
