To Mod or not to Mod my motu896hd, that is the question....

So...after reading up on the Motu896hd, and noticing alot of people are unhappy with the stock pres, i was wondering if i should mod it...

Knowing the stock pres on a $450 unit are probably not the best, and i am extremely picky, would the Black Lion Mod make a huge difference in the sound quality? more crystal clear and easier for mics to do their jobs?

i will be running the pres through a Presonus Bluetube with blacklion mod + ART MPA Gold with new tubes(not sure which ones yet)

Will it help the overall sound of whats coming in???

(i dont know if this helps but mics i own are:

M-audio Sputnik
M-audio Pulsar II Pair
3 SM57's
Audix D6
Audio-Technica AT3035

BLA mod made a night-and-day difference with my motu stuff. Even some of my clients noticed it. I didn't get the clock, just the analog stage.

The stock pre-amps in that unit are alright. You'd probably be better off getting a few stand-alone pre-amps in different flavors and using the line-in switch when you wanted to use them.
