bump for an old post.

I've been thinking about modding my Elite. I have heard alot of people talking about modding elite's and elan's, but I can't find any real info on what mods are being done...

Also what techs have been modding them.

Hi
For a start, have they been recapped?
There is no point in changing opamps until it is back to it's original condition.
If I had schematics and possibly a module or two to 'play' with I would be able to make some practical suggestions.
If the power rail decoupling is the same as a series 1 then a good sprinkling of 0u1 caps on the power rails to all the ICs would be a start, perhaps then some judiciously increased and bypassed electrolytic caps.
Actually this turns the thread into the Geekslutz area so probably would need bumping.

A great resource for Neotek owners.

How 'bout Richard Zeier?.....former neotek employee who masterfully rebuilt my Encore including removing the antiquated Film mixing mess of a Master section and mating it with a Manley 16x2 Tube Mixer.
He's in the Los Angeles area, contact him at [email protected]
