LA4

Well,..
It will make a big big difference.

But if you like the way it sounds "as is" you dont "need" to do a mod.
Stock they that aren't noisy or anything, they just kind of close up and fall apart due to slow slew rate of the original IC.

BTW: Depending on the model you have, the mod can take as little as 1 minute to do.
With one of the silver faces its as simple as opening the top and replacing 2 IC's with an adapter stand off and a different IC. Reversible just as easy.

I'd suggest these

I have two. I left one original and did Eddie Ciletti's mod to the other. The mod sounds better, no doubt. I like having the option of both, though.

My LA4 was unusable before Eddie went through it and when I got it back I was VERY surprised how much I liked it. It has a clean "sheen" that it imparts to everything I put through it now. I don't know if it is necessary to get yours modded but I would recommend it.

Consider this; I would think that Urei used the best or close to the best components that existed when that unit was designed/built. Around 30 years later caps, chips are FAR better...
Also IF you HAD to repair that unit because of faulty caps or chips those 30 year old parts DO NOT exist...
Most of the sound of that unit is HOW it works...
