All the elements of the new Apollo Twin X mod combine to greatly enrich the sound of both tracking and playback. The soundstage is presented with additional depth and instrument separation that can best be described as a 3 dimensional quality. Frequency response gets a major boost in linearity, resulting in improved perception of the frequency distribution in a mix. Highs become sweet and smooth, mids sound pleasantly natural and bass articulation shines through.
We are offering the following modification for the Apollo Twin X:
*Note* The Apollo Twin X mods do not include an optical output like older Apollo Twins due to space constraints
New High performance op amps all outputs (HP, Line, Monitor)
Extensive power decoupling on Monitor outputs and Line outputs.
Premium signal path capacitors on Monitor outputs and Line outputs.
Premium signal path capacitors on Mic and Line inputs.
Robust power decoupling on Mic preamps and DI.
Proprietary A/D power decoupling
Proprietary D/A power decoupling
Raise the sonic bar even higher with our Apollo Twin X Mod!
Booking a Mod
A 50% down payment will be collected during checkout for booking a modification. The remaining 50%, plus return shipping, will be due when the modification is complete. You will be prompted to choose a mod date when you add a mod to your cart. After booking, you will receive an email confirming your chosen “mod date” and shipping details.
The interface is not included in the mod price. You must supply us with an interface to be modified.
We often get asked our opinion on how one interface compares to another, so we’ve decided to create a rating system based on subjective A/B listening tests. The scale is from 1-10, with “1” being unimpressive audio quality and “10” being true audio excellence. This is an exponential scale, so going from “1” to “2” isn’t nearly as big of a jump as going from “9” to “10”. Please keep in mind, we only modify an interface if we can make a significant improvement to the sound. All of our ratings are ultimately a matter of opinion.
