Product Description

Our approach to the Audiofire 12 involves upgrading the op-amp path from the JRC2068 to Burr Brown’s OPA2134, which features about three times the slew rate and considerably less voltage noise (about 560 nanovolts for the JRC and 8 nanovolts for the 2134).  We also modify the converter circuitry using our proprietary techniques for converter design.  The result yields improved slew rate, distortion performance, and better converter dynamic range performance, and produces an audio signal that’s much easier to mix and process.

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”.

MODIFICATIONS

Scheduling

We schedule modifications according to demand. The next available “mod” date is listed on our website. Modifications can be scheduled online or by email (info@blacklionaudio.com). We require a 50% down payment in order to secure your spot on our “mod” calendar. You will receive a confirmation email with your scheduled date after we receive your down payment. The audio interface is NOT included in the “mod” price.

Payment

We accept credit and debit cards (MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover), PayPal, checks, money orders, and real estate deed transfers (no mortgages or liens, please).

Shipping

Please ship your gear to arrive at our shop 1-2 business days prior to your scheduled “mod” date. Be sure to pack your gear well (recommended 2” – 4” of protective materials) to avoid any additional charges for BLA-supplied packaging materials. We won’t be held liable for damage incurred during shipping.

Turnaround Time

Our turnaround time on modifications is typically 7-10 business days from the scheduled “mod” date. This does not include any unforeseen issues, the time it takes for final billing, or return shipping. We will contact you if we’re experiencing longer-than-usual turnaround.

Final Payment

After your modification is complete, we will contact you to collect the remainder 50% of the modification price, plus return shipping.
Please be aware, any completed modifications remaining unpaid in our shop for more than 5 business days from the time the final invoice is sent will accrue a $10 per day holding fee. Any completed modifications remaining in our shop for more than 20 business days from the time the final invoice is sent will be considered abandoned and sold to reimburse our costs.

Return Shipping

Customers are responsible for all return shipping costs for modifications. We use UPS (signature required) for shipping within the continental U.S., and USPS for shipping elsewhere. We can accommodate DHL and FedEx shipments upon request. You will be emailed a tracking number when your order ships.
We won’t adjust invoices to help international shipments avoid import duties, so please don’t ask. Your time is better spent lobbying your local government.

Warranty

We extend a two-year warranty on defects in materials and workmanship for all Black Lion Audio modifications from the modification date. This does not cover user error, wear, tear, abuse, or OEM failures related to hardware, firmware, or software.
Should your B.L.A. modification experience any problems or failures during the warranty period, please email us at info@blacklionaudio.com to request an RMA form. Warranty repairs that don’t include a completed RMA form in the box cannot be processed.

Rescheduling

We can reschedule modifications for up to two weeks prior to the scheduled modification date. Please email us at info@blacklionaudio.com with any changes you’d like to make.

Cancellations

We accept modification cancellations for up to two weeks prior to the scheduled modification date. If you need to cancel within two weeks of your scheduled date, there is a 30% cancellation fee of the down payment amount.

Returns & Exchanges

Once something has been modified, there’s no going back. We are not able to offer returns or exchanges on modified equipment.

Non-Warranty Repairs

If your B.L.A. modification is in need of a repair that isn’t covered by our warranty, please email us at info@blacklionaudio.com to request an RMA form. Repairs that don’t include a completed RMA form in the box cannot be processed. We charge a nominal bench fee that covers most repairs. If the cost of a repair exceeds the bench fee, we will contact you.
