Universal Audio has met an important need amongst modern audio engineers with their Apollo line of audio interfaces – onboard plug-in processing! The Apollo Twin modification is a much-awaited addition to the BLA family! Read below for details on how we can take your interface to the next level!
We are offering the following modification for the Apollo Twin Mk1, Mk2, and USB:
– New, high performance op-amps on analog inputs and outputs (mic preamps, line inputs, and line outputs)
– New, high-grade signal path capacitors on analog inputs (mic preamps & line inputs)
– Improving the performance of the analog stage circuits makes a drastic difference for tracking, mixing, and mastering (expect amazing micro-dynamics and space)!
– Proprietary decoupling on all A/D and D/A converters
– Our approach to converter decoupling reduces noise generated during the conversion process, leaving you with crisp, clear audio!
– New, full scale optical output via a mini TOSLINK jack that mirrors Monitor L & R
– PLEASE NOTE: the Apollo Twin USB Premium Mod does not include the mini TOSLINK output jack due to space constraints, thus the lower price!
Hear the Apollo Twin like never before!
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.
