I had the original mods done to my 002R (clock, analog stages, and preamps) and I'm having mine sent to them next week to get the additional "tweak head" package. I'll let you know how it goes once I get it back

Same here. I thought the original mod cleaned up the mixes nicely. My 002 is on the bench right now at BLA for the Tweak Head mod. I'll post once I get it back and lay some tracks.

So I got my 002 back from Black Lion Audio finally, a couple weeks ago, and I have to say, right off the bat, I don't notice too many differences from when I got the original mods done less than a year ago. I don't think I have enough of an ear to hear the differences in the older "new" clock they put in vs the newer clock. I DO notice however, that sessions that I bring home from the HD3 system at work, sound a lot better once I get them on my LE system than they used to.

I always had issues when bringing mixes home, or just any sessions in general, that I'd be disappointed with how they sounded. Just tonight, I brought home a jazz session with vox and piano, and what I hear at home now with my LE system is nearly exactly the same as what I heard at work with the HD3 system running of a pair of 192's.

Now, I don't know if it's just my ears playing games on me, because I did just move into a new apartment, but I'm just telling it as it is. The difference from a stock 002 to a lightly modded BLA 002 is HUGE, but to me the different between the lightly modded 002 to the fully modded 002 isn't that noticeable. I hope my $275 will result in better sounds and mixes, but the original $450 I invested in the first mod was DEFINITELY worth it.

Let me know if anyone else has any questions, and I'll try to answer as best I can.

This is probably too early to ask, but have you done any tracking at all on the newly modded unit? I was wondering about your opinion of the modded 002 mic pres. Everything I have ever heard on them is overwhelmingly good.
