Fiiiiiiiiiinally got my 163x's.... way cleaner than expected!!

Actually not exactly sure what I expected....
I have some DBX unit's so I know the sound and expected the 163's to be a bit lo-fi maybe??
Just did a basic mono test (as I only have one US-OZ adapter), inserted it on a mono drum loop and crushed away!
Not as transparent as my aphex units, but way cleaner than I expected!

Lives for gear

Look up the mod for them in the tape op forums. There is a whole bunch of stuff they do to them but if you just change the one big cap and an op amp it makes them just about crystal clear and a whole lot more useable.
