Black Lion Audio was the only place I ever knew advertising an upgrade service for the 002 and other interfaces.

Indeed, if you HAVE an 002, I would use the lightpipe input with any of several 8-channel preamps available. On the cheap side of things, the Behringer ADA8200 is great bang for the buck(talking about the red one, not the older ADA8000). Focusrite OctoPre is a mid-priced option(but having used both, I'd still take the Behringer). At the top of the price range, the Focusrite ISA428 or 828 with the optional digital card is really nice(but its a lot of money:o).

You can also use the LINE inputs with most any external preamp(I ran a lunchbox of 4 here and it worked great). As said, if you are shopping, or have a broken 002, the price of repair is likely not worth it(when you can buy a used 003 for $100:eek:).

I hear the Grace Design m108 kicks ass as an ADAT preamp... (if you like that Grace Design super-clean preamp thang).

Thanks for your answer they might not be doing it anymore but thanks anyway. I will look into it. :-)

I Just checked they are doing it.


That was easy now a lot of people know that this kind of upgrade exists and it is up to them if they think its worthwhile or not.




Thanks
