Mod Ratings

We frequently get asked how one interface compares to another. Here’s a comprehensive list of how we rate each interface sonically before and after a modification.

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.
