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.
:)


Of course he can, he has heard all of our tapes  ;D
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.

....ummm...  You got this one just a bit Reversed.   ;)

FWIW  I had always wondered if he would do something with the Grace Boxes, he and Mike are friends and I know they still talk shop from time to time.

He's always commented on the quality of the Grace products and about just how much they were producing top notch boxes.  Even still the one thing that I've always noticed is a bit of a veil or a slightly congested sound for far field recordings (what we do) his boxes are perfect for studio work.  I'm certain that this mod will be geared towards eliminating those two issues for our particular application.  I'm sooo looking forward to seeing these in the field as they seem to be responsible for so many of the recordings being made these days.
Yes, but what do you HEAR?

I think Jammin meant Doug is not the youngest, if it is the same Jammin from the Oade board he has a connection to them from what I remember.

I worked for those guys for quite a while.


Of the Brothers Doug is the Oldest, and Jim is the youngest.


But in this thread the Mod V3 should have the spotlight.

Wow.  My bad.  I always got the impression that Doug was younger.

Back to the ACM V3.  Show #3 tomorrow night for Big Head Todd!

yea, i busted his chops once on the phone, and after appologizing he said something like "as the youngest brother, I'm used to it"
but my memory..well, it ain't all that...or a bag of chips.

You spoke with all of us at some point right around the debut of the STR-DA3000ES.  Jim would definitely say something like that, I'm sure it was him and you somehow attributed it to Doug.

ahhh... Time eh?

Brothers brother brothers!  Why can't one of those guys make me a 148? :P




At this point it's a matter of bench time.  To modify an existing piece of equipment or to build a piece with point to point hand soldering from scratch?  When every moment at the bench causes you pain and damage to your being you quickly calculate a cost/benefit ratio in your mind.

They're out there...  those that have them sitting in the closet, give 'em up already they deserve to be in the field!!!

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

 I'm actually on vacaton in Nederland right now. I'll be down at the Grace shop on Monday for a little maintenance. My only concern is how it affects the warranty.I'll ask about that. I think they will be interested in how the sound is changed. If they really liked it, they might start offering it as an option from the factory?

I shall also inquire about progress on the mythical V4.  ;D

Has there ever been a V1 or they missed it and went straight to V2?
