silver LA-4

I just picked up a couple of the silver faced LA-4's. They sound OK but don't blow me away. I've heard the earlier black ones sound better. Does anyone have experience with both units? Are there mods available for the silver ones? Thanks...

I have two silver face LA4s and use em all the time. Different sound than 1176/78 a little smoother and slower. They don't get much respect but i find them useful. Between LA4ss 1176s,1178s,and dbx 160 vu's most applications are covered. I seem to recall reading about a mod that "improved" these units. I'll try to locate it. good luck

Alactronics does some absolutely bitching modifications to LA-4's... if it were my silver LA-4, I'd send it off to Alactronics and have them turn it into one of their little masterpieces for me.

As always... your mileage may vary...
