- The highs are not fatiguing anymore.  Fatiguing highs seeming to be a common knock on the V3.

I've always found the V3's HF the least fatiguing of every preamp/ADC I've heard.  Different ears, gear, playback, etc.  Go figure.  :P

At any rate, all this is very interesting.  Now that I'm getting back into the V3 game, gonna have to do some listening to decide how to proceed.  Were you ever able to do the stock v. mod V3 comp?  Or maybe the planned show hasn't hit yet?

The plan is to run the comp next weekend at Old Settler's Fest.

has the unit in existence been used with any microphones other than AKG?  that would certainly be great for the rest of us :) i sold my V3 because i thought my previous V2 > M1 recordings sounded better and i needed the money.  If this mod is a good one, it might have been good of me to keep that V3

i'm sorry but my eyebrow raised at the first post of this thread when OFOTD was explaining to doug how he is an akg nut and then this v3 mod discussion went underway :P

just making sure the mod isn't tailored around the akg sound.  knowing doug's microphone choices in the past, though, i'm not worried ;) AD chipsets are always getting better.  When did the V3 first come out?  I'm sure any mod doug does definitely improve the sound of the v3

We're going to be running some stock vs. mod V3 comps this weekend.  I know there will be some Gefells and MBHO's for sure down there.  I'll try and get something else to run in front other then the AKG's.

Actually, it came out in October 2002.  My first outing was 10/19/02 for Mule.  I picked mine up directly from Grace that morning -- had it pulled off the production line before its burn-in testing was completed so I could have it for the Mule show.

A few units had already been shipped out by that time, but I don't think any went out as early as Sept 2002.
Mics: Microtech Gefell m20/m21 (nbob/pfa actives), Line Audio CM3, Church CA-11 cards
Preamp:  none <sniff>
Recorders:  Sound Devices MixPre-6, Sony PCM-M10, Zoom H4nPro

Good if someone can post a poll sometime (blind test).

Any ideas on the pirce to do a MOD from Doug? I think comparing V3 vs MOD V3 blindly will gives us an idea if it's worth doing.

Mics: DPA3552 kit/DPA3521 kit/DPA SMK4081 kit/DPA SMK4060 kit/Schoeps 2X MK21, 2X MK22 and 2X MK4v and 2X Schoeps CCM2S

Recorders: SD722/PCM-D50/MT2
Playback: Grace m903 - Sennheiser HD650 / Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus 805s

Just got back home from a GREAT weekend of music and taping.  Comp and poll should be up later this week.  We debated over a ton of different ways to comp and in the end we ran two sets of 483's (din) > HiHi Silver XLR's > V3/modV3 > bitbucket.  We taped one of the littler known acts so that hopefully their won't be much bias towards the artist for the comp.

Pricing?  I have no idea what Doug might charge for the V3 upgrade.  Sorry.
